  • I also highly recommend I took a workshop from Beth Coleman and the team at Catalynk and really enjoyed it. Beth is a wealth of knowledge and it was so great to network with other organizations about their practices/teams!

  • I am very happy with what we have achieved so far and have more to learn. Our AskUs portal has knowledge shared by several departments.

  • The v6 Practices course was absolutely brilliant. It all makes perfect sense to me. Sharing knowledge reduces repeat work and improves customer self-service. We have more time to use our problem solving skills and use knowledge insights to improve products and services.
