We are delighted that our managing director Liz Taylor has been made a fellow of the IRMS (Information and Records Management Society).

Liz, who has worked in both information governance and delivery of training for the past 20 years, addressed the group’s annual conference in Glasgow earlier this week.

She told delegates from around the world about how imperative it was to deliver and recognise success while focusing on what we can achieve instead of ticking boxes in such a dynamic working environment.

At the gala dinner and industry award night she received the prestigious fellowship honour.

IRMS fellowship is the senior level of society membership, and it is designed to acknowledge the most senior and respected information professionals. IRMS Fellowships are conferred annually following a process of nomination.

In order to become a fellow, the individual has to meet at least one of the following criteria:

Eminence:  recognised and acknowledged across the IM/RM sector and beyond as an expert in a particular field, and should have made a significant contribution to the sector and its perception to the general public;

Authority:  recognised and respected for their knowledge and expertise in the sector, or has contributed to the development and perception of the IRMS or IM/RM sector;

Seniority:  typically in a senior position with a range of experience with, or who has had responsibility for, large projects or project design.

Liz said: “It is a fantastic honour to have been awarded the fellowship which means a lot personally to me and to our company as we strive to reach new heights.

“To join the ranks of so many talented information governance fellows is something that I and TKM are immensely proud of.”
