Session Details

Monday 22nd May: 15:05pm - 15:35pm

'Talking Wall - Information Governance Resources and SWAP SHOP'

'Talking Wall' is a simple technique adapted from commercial situations of exploring issues, analysing problems and developing action plans. The focus will be information governance resources. Participants are invited to bring along a current resource used for IG training - something with a proven success rate or an untested idea. All ideas are welcome. The purpose is to build a 'treasure trove' of IG tricks and and the outcome is for participants to gather a variety of training resources. At the end of the session a SWAP SHOP will open for business, exchanging resources guaranteed to refresh and motivate audiences.

Topic: Soft Skills - helping you as a professional, particularly in managing change
