What did people say about the training Courses?

"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."

"I have to say that I really enjoyed the opportunity to get to know the basics of what good IM & Record Keeping is all about. There was a lot that I did not already know, which will help to provide a new lens in the way we look at IM here at GWRC. Thanks again Kerri!"

"Kerri is a fantastic trainer and it is the first course I have really enjoyed."

"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!"

"Really enjoyed the course and learnt some very valuable information."
