About the Workshop Day
Following on the successes of previous workshops, your Institute for Information Management is organising another opportunity for our members and supporters to meet and spend half of the day in learning, creative thinking and networking.

The focus for the IIM Workshop Day will be around the innovative approaches to design, develop and deploy and sustain the modern information management capabilities, solutions, projects and initiatives.  We will touch on various hot topics in the information management sphere, but our time and energy will be aimed at improving the ways we go about implementing them.
