What attracted you to the IRMS Conference event?
I was attracted by the quality of the programme centred around the theme "Back To The Future: From Best Practice To Innovation"
Where do you see the Information Record Management industry heading over the next few years?
Looking at the annual networking opportunities that the IRMS provides, I see a bright future for the information & Record Management industry.
When you think about the industry, what keeps you awake at night?
Information leaks or confidentiality breaches.
If you have been to the IRMS Conference event before, what was your highlight?
Inspirational speakers, lively discussions, comprehensive exhibition, and the social activities.
Who has helped shape your career, and how?
One of my teachers doing my Ph.D programme. Prof. Yacob Haliso was the one who encouraged me to go into this career. I had gotten admission for Ph.D in Public Administration but this Professor encouraged me to change to Ph.D in Information Resources Mangement. I am glad I yeilded to his advice. This has expanded my exposure in the career.
If a time machine could take you anywhere for one day, when/where would you go?
