SLA Europe was pleased to welcome Oliver Guirdham from the Business Research Company to present and give some ideas on how research and information managers can efficiently gather information, help their organisations survive and thrive through informed decisions in these difficult times.
With organisations adapting their processes and changing their strategies in preparation for existence in a post-COVID-19 environment, Oliver looked at how information professionals can play an active role in supporting such measures. The presentation also shared tips and advice for information professionals on how to continue to sharpen and hone research and information skills in an increasingly data driven world.
SLA Europe’s recording of the webinar can also be viewed below and also on our YouTube channel. We would also like to ask members to please consider making a charitable donation to our chosen charity, Half Moon Young People’s Theatre.
