Information as Asset Report Launched!

Information IS an Asset. This was the key takeaway message that CILIP and its project partners KPMG, CIO Connect and IK Springboard wantedattendees to take away from the launch of the position paper "Information as an Asset: Today's Board Agenda".  The launch event, hosted by KPMG at their offices in Canary Wharf on 14th February was attended by 70 plus senior figures in the information world representing a multitude of different organisations. After a welcome and introduction from Anna Purchas, Partner and Head of People, KPMG, the afternoon started with an insightful presentation from Jennifer Rigby, Chief Information Officer, Lloyds of London. Project board member Sandra Ward followed with an introduction to the report itself. Thought-provoking presentations from Dr Apurva Sinha, Head of Innovation and Information Management, Network Rail and Mr James Freed, Health Education England followed. The event ended with a lively panel discussion with some challenging questions from the audience. The feedback, both at the event, and afterwards has been overwhelmingly positive, with people keen to deliver the message to senior management and their organisations that a great information management strategy is key to success. To download your free copy of the report, read more about the project, find backgrounder documents, the presentations from the day, and links to information management resources go to

The K&IM SIG will be rolling out more information and events linked to this important report in the next months so keep watching this space for more news!
