About CB Resourcing
Drawing on the content of their recently published title A Handbook for Corporate Information Professionals Katharine Schopflin (editor) and Andrew Grave will present and lead a discussion entitled Corporate Information Professionals: Building on the past and preparing for the future.
This event is generously sponsored by CB Resourcing
Katharine will set the scene, summarising where we are as a sector, how we have ended up here and current key concerns. Andrew will talk about how managers can identify when changes will be likely to occur. He will discuss how managers can prepare for it and handle it when it does arrive.
The presentations and Q&A will be followed by a chance to network over drinks and canapes.
