The author gives an overview of the major themes and five keynote addresses of a recent conference held at the University of Technology, Sydney in December 2000. The 'Working Knowledge' conference provided an opportunity to reflect on the changing nature of the economy and to explore the implications of an education system that works in closer alliance with business and industry. The five keynote addresses provided a particular construction on the nature of this knowledge and the manner in which it challenges much of the orthodoxy surrounding educational systems and their practices. The keynote addresses were given by James Gee, Robin Usher, Catherine Casey, Stewart Clegg and Paul du Gay.
