IM Think Tank

The IM Think Tank is a networking group that gives Information Management, Records and GLAM professionals a chance to speak up, in a safe and accepting space. 

The Think Tank is a sales-free, system-agnostic, safe space to come together and share ideas, thoughts, gripes, issues, brainstorm. Every session has a theme or topic to explore, with volunteer speakers and an interactive activity at every session. 

It’s owned by no one and relies on professionals volunteering to host as a venue, putting ideas forward for topics, activities and putting their hand up to present. It’s a true community event for IM professionals to ‘talk shop’.
