The SLA Virtual Conference takes on A Profession in Transformation

Register now for the SLA Virtual Conference, featuring A Profession in Transformation presented by the Financial Times.

This session, which kicks off the 2-day, 6-session event on September 25th at 11:00 a.m. ET, will feature in-depth commentary from C-suite executives who rely on information services for strategic business decisions.

In light of the evolving information economy, what qualities do they value most from their information functions? What have become less important to the organization?

What new opportunities do these leading executives see for their information function?

Join this Webinar to hear these in-depth, C-suite interviews recounted, and matched against data collected from nearly 1,000 information professionals to uncover key expectation gabs between information providers and users.

The data, case studies, and interviews will converge to provide actionable insight on how information professionals will transition into client-centric, decision-enabling strategic arms of any type of organization.

This session along with the entire Virtual Conference line up will feature insight that you don’t want to miss. We hope to see you there!
