    Library and information people are great in a crisis. We always said this but now we can prove it - over the past few years we have seen a global pandemic, continuing war and political instability, and now we will see a downturn and even a recession. This session will offer practical insights into how knowledge and information people can communicate their value.

    Library and information people are great in a crisis. We always said this but now we can prove it - over the past few years we have seen a global pandemic, continuing war and political instability, and now we will see a downturn and even a recession. This session will offer practical insights into how knowledge and information people can communicate their value. But, for better or worse, logically collecting evidence and presenting it to management won’t guarantee that you’ll win them over or even get your message across. How can we get - and hold - their attention?

    TARGET AUDIENCE:

    This session is designed for all library and information managers, directors of information and knowledge services, and for anyone else responsible for driving innovation across the organization.


    TAKEAWAYS:

    1. Participants will be able to articulate clearly how the library/information/knowledge department can contribute meaningfully to the overall strategy of the firm/organization
    2. Participants will understand why and how raw data needs to be incorporated into more meaningful and contextual stories to generate interest and demonstrate your service's value
    3. Participants will immediately have examples of how to communicate with colleagues in other departments in a language they understand without jargon, without confusion
