Rowenna Fielding

Member of the Executive Committee of NADPO and Information Governance Expert

Rowenna is a self-confessed privacy nerd and Information Governance geek who began her IG career by coming out of the server room and taking an interest in information security, before broadening her horizons to include the other 7 data protection principles as well. Rowenna is the in-house Information Governance expert for a large national charity and due to being unable to leave IG behind at the office at the end of the day, is also on the executive committee of NADPO and a member of a variety of professional associations related to privacy, information security and records management.

Driving Change in a Tricked-out Aston Martin - Lessons for IG Pros from 007s Quartermaster


As tools and technologies for managing information become ever more sophisticated and varied, Information Governance professionals are expected to be able to do more than just deliver turnkey solutions or issue "how to" instructions. We need to provide effective business partnership - but how? 

This session looks at the role of the Quartermaster ("Q") in the James Bond films, drawing parallels from his role supporting the front-line 'Agents of Change' to the work of an Information Governance professional, and gaining insights from his successes - and failures - to help us and our organisations achieve our missions.

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

Tuesday 23rd May: 15:45pm - 16:30pm
