What attracted you to the IRMS Conference event?
Having recently completed a Practitioners Certificate in GDPR, the conference was recommended to me as an extremely useful and interactive method in developing my knowledge and networking abilities. Having reviewed the agenda, I do believe that I will be able to gain a great deal from the breakout sessions and the various speakers.
Where do you see the Information Record Management industry heading over the next few years?
This is a key in ensuring compliant with GDPR and also in general maintenance of records across any sector.
When you think about the industry, what keeps you awake at night?
The volume of documents that we retain.
What do you feel is the most pressing pain point of end-users in the industry for 2018?
Understanding what is available without having to spend a fortune on solutions.
If a time machine could take you anywhere for one day, when/where would you go?
I would simply ask for a lucky dip - surprises are what keeps us alert!
