What are Knowledge Exchange (KE) Learning Lunches?  Learning Lunches provide a space to explore and learn about knowledge exchange and impact combined with the opportunity to network over a sandwich lunch.  Colleagues and external speakers will share their experiences, with plenty of time for questions and discussion.
