This presentation runs as follows:

  • Introducing the idea that poor information management carries hidden risks and costs

  • Top three hidden risks and costs quantified

  • What does Extraordinary information management mean?

  • The importance of Leadership

  • 7 ways to be a better Information Management Leader

 
Be the Change / Bring it On / Build the New - Variations on Keynote Presentation

The future is racing towards us. Change has always been a part of the human landscape, but now, more than ever before, change is happening at an exponential rate. It’s remarkable to see what innovation is bringing to the world. On the other hand, it’s disruptive, it’s confronting, and it makes us worry about what is to come.

Kate Fuelling knows a lot about leading people through digital innovation. As a records and information management specialist, over the past 16 years she has helped organisations such as Tesco (UK), the National Gallery of Australia, and the National Health and Medical Research Council to explore how they can work better in the digital world.

In this presentation, Kate explores how we, as organisations and employees, meet the future with confidence, with optimism, with integrity.

She asks the questions what does leadership look like in this exponentially changing landscape? How can we help our people to feel safe, yet inspired to explore and innovate using digital solutions?

And how do we start today?

This presentation runs as follows:

  • What’s so hard about digital transformation?

  • Why is digital leadership so important?

  • How we are our own worst enemies

  • 7 ways you can be a better digital citizen and leader.
