Configuring SharePoint for collaboration and records management

Track: Making SharePoint Work
Location: Room G
I have been consulting and training in records management for the past five years. In January of 2009 I formed my own company.
An area of work that I particularly enjoy is training. I am an accredited trainer for the European Commission, and provide English language records management training for their staff. I have designed and delivered specific records management training programmes for many organisations. I give many of the popular records management courses offered to information professionals by TFPL.
I have helped several large organisations build corporate fileplans for their electronic records management systems and have written several articles on ways of making fileplans easier to build and use.
I have used a variety of facilitation techniques to help groups of people identify, explore and come to decisions about the information challenges they are facing.
Prior to becoming a consultant I held records management positions at the Welcome Trust, the London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham, and The National Archives (then the Public Record Office).
