In the Spotlight: Neil Reeves

Company: IRMS

Job Title: eDirector


What attracted you to the IRMS Conference event?

I was attracted to my first conference as it was the best platform to find out more about all aspects of the IRM world. Now I come to conferences as part of the IRMS Executive team and, although I'm slightly biased, have seen them grow from strength to strength with more informative and quality content.

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

With GDPR on the horizon companies are finally realising the importance of good information management practices. Its a very exciting time for the field.

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

The fact that some organisations are still blind to the damage that bad information management can do. That they think less of company personal data than they would their own.

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

The introduction of the armchair panel in Glasgow was genius.

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


Who has helped shape your career, and how?

The guidance form all the people I have met through conference, and my peers on the Executive Team.

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

I would love to go back to July 13th 1985 to be part of the crowd at Live Aid.
