Last night I went out for Christmas drinks with some other information professionals and even convinced a colleague from work to come along.
It was the first meeting of the Leeds and Yorkshire Information and Knowledge Exchange, which was set up by some lovely ladies (@woodsiegirl, @theatregrad, @libmichelle) I have met through CPD23. It’s all about networking and knowledge sharing for information professionals and follows the idea of the London Information and Knowledge Exchange. I am really pleased that this was set up and hope it will develop further. Ideas thrown around last night included “hot topic” discssions, talks about various job roles and work places, and training opportunities across different sectors.
