What did people say about the trainings?

"The breadth of topics covered was over the entire span of records and gave me some good ideas to follow up within our organisation as both an archivist and member of digital transformation steering group. Kerri's experience of both records and archives, as well as working with large institutions, was of great help when asking targeted questions."

"A clear overview of what it means [to be an executive sponsor] and what needs to be done."

"All aspects of the workshop were valuable, however I particularly found the classification structures, metadata and the discussion about key legislations and standards most valuable."

"I really enjoyed learning about all the layers/aspects of records management, some of which I had not known of before but made sense and added depth. Thank you!"
