In the Spotlight: David Bowen

Company: Audata Ltd

Job Title: Director

What attracted you to the IRMS Conference event?

Networking - meeting friends and colleagues, and making new friends.  
Learning - hear from people who know what they are doing and can explain it
Sharing - talking to suppliers and colleagues about aspects of IRM

Where do you see the Information Record Management industry heading over the next few years?

IRM will become even more important - reliable, secure information is the basis of quick, responsive business and government.  If we work at it, the profession will become less fragmented - we will work together to increase our influence on Government and industry.

When you think about the industry, what keeps you awake at night?

Fragmentation.  Fake news.  Hacking.

If you have been to the IRMS Conference event before, what was your highlight?

Talks about the future of the profession ("we should be seen in the same light as Accountants - essential to our organisations");  talks about blockchain.

What do you feel is the most pressing pain point of end-users in the industry for 2018?

Rapid changes in digital media and behaviours;  slow response from suppliers and management.

Who has helped shape your career, and how?

A number of IRMS members over the past 20 years.

If a time machine could take you anywhere for one day, when/where would you go?

I guess I am happy where and when I am.
