Records and information management professionals crossed borders and made new connections last week, with over 5o delegates from Queensland and Northern NSW, gathering for a two day symposium that featured an incredible line up of presenters and industry professionals. Held at the stunning Peppers at Salt Resort and Spa, Kingscliff, delegates were exposed to engaging and interactive presentations covering topics of collaboration, management skills, balancing business benefit, creating connections and the implications of digital technology on the industry, as well as aligning business outcomes with governance. To kick off the symposium an insight of some of the Qld Chapter’s founders was showcased to the delegates in a personal and insightful segment of “This is Your Life’.
