I have to learn to #slowdown to speed up – so says my sports trainer Jason @P_Coach_Me I know this full well but all my life I’ve raced around like a mad thing trying to get far too many things done at once. This week has been no different. I started the week in Perth, Scotland with an early morning keynote on #transformation and managing information. I had fun speaking but I think that sometimes I’m a little too #futuristic for my peers. @IRMSScotland did a great job with the day-long conference and thanks to Perth and Kinross Council www.pkc.gov.uk for co-sponsoring. I returned to London and @friendscxh AGM then off to a wonderful evening event hosted by www.truphone.com on #AI a subject that is gaining interest in the world of information that I inhabit. #Robots, not really. @benjaminellis gave a fascinating paper on the subject, weaving in facts about human interaction / reaction to non-sentient beings. Check out http://bambuser.com/v/5903120 courtesy of Tuttle Club & Heroes of Mobile @LloydDavis. Then on Thursday I went along to the #INS15 #ILTAUK day where speakers continued the AI theme amongst many other things. It was a really well put together day with excellent speakers and vendors. My work week ended @The_IOD Women in Business Conference #IODWiB along with www.queenofthemile.com and @thefilequeen from www.archivestorage.net. I’m not usually a fan of all women events but we heard some great speakers including @TheresaMay_MP, @IamLaraMorgan and @MaggieAlphonsi. Really impressive were the young entrepreneurs from @IOD_99. I learnt something new at every event. For the most part I had made a conscious decision to go to events that were not in my usual sphere. It was a good decision and one that I would encourage everyone to make. #Slowdown this week, not really, just energised and excited for the future.
