Alexandra Lederer Alexandra was part of the first Knowledge Management (KM) practitioners at the emergence of this practice in the early 2000s in France.

In the past 10 years, she has been blending traditional L&D with KM concepts to focus on what she believes really adds value: connecting people to share their stories and lessons learned.
