IRM UK Update: Postponed Conferences and Courses

A message from Jeremy Hall, Managing Director, IRM UK

 

Like the rest of the world, we have been closely monitoring the developments of COVID-19. Coronavirus has disrupted our daily lives in ways we could not have imagined. However, as with all businesses and individuals, we also need to soldier on as best as we can.

As most of you already know, IRM UK made the decision to postpone our conferences and public courses to the second half of the year, giving priority to the health and safety of our delegates, speakers, sponsors and staff.

Our Business Change and Transformation Conference has now been re-scheduled to 26-28 October 2020, The Tower Hotel, London. The conference is going to be co-located with our annual Enterprise Architecture and Business Process Management Conferences, 26-29 October 2020, London. Delegates can choose to attend all sessions related to business change and transformation, or, if they wish, they can also attend sessions from our Enterprise Architecture Conference and / or Business Process Management Conference. Therefore, delegates can choose sessions from the 3 conferences, if they wish, or completely focus on the business change and transformation tracks.

We have re-scheduled our Data Governance and MDM Summit Europe to 2-5 November, The Tower Hotel, London. The conference will be co-located with our annual Enterprise Data and Business Intelligence & Analytics Conferences Europe. Delegates can choose to attend all sessions from the Data Governance and MDM tracks, or, delegates have the option to attend sessions from the Enterprise Data Conference and /or Business Intelligence & Analytics Conference as well. Therefore, delegates can choose sessions from 4 conferences, if they wish, or completely focus on the Data Governance and MDM Conference tracks.

We believe that co-location of our postponed conferences will add value to the conferences, as delegates now have the option to attend tracks from other highly relevant conferences at no extra cost, if they wish.

Please don’t forget that we also be running our extremely popular annual conference, Business Analysis Conference Europe, 21-23 September, London. The final Agenda will be published during the week of 6 April.

Please note that, with all our conferences being held in the second half of the year, the Keynotes and Conference Sessions will be Live Streamed. Our conferences will therefore be available to delegates face to face or via Live Streaming.

Following the postponement of our public courses to the second half of the year, we have been able to make available some of these courses via live streaming in the next few months. This week, we successfully held our Information Management Fundamentals course via live streaming. Delegate feedback have been very positive. We have the following Live Streaming courses coming up:

Public Courses available via Live Streaming

Data Modelling Essentials, Chris Bradley, 21-22 April
Mastering Data Modelling Techniques, Chris Bradley, 23-24 April
Design and Build a Data Driven Digital Business—From BI to AI and Beyond, Barry Devlin, 1-3 June
Architecting the Digital Business Platform, Mike Rosen, 8-9 June
BizOps – Integrating Architecture, Business Analysis, DevOps, Lean, and Agile, 10-11 June

We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for their support and patience in these very challenging times. Coronavirus has changed the way we live in but we are all in this together. We look forward to ‘better times’, which will come, and to working with you all again.

Wishing you all well and please take care of yourself and your loved ones.

Kind regards

Jeremy Hall
Managing Director
