Share Career Stories

Event Details

The information and library profession has seen great changes over the last 20 years. Many of the jobs that exist now were simply undreamt of when many people began their careers. At the same time, many roles have disappeared. To thrive, information professionals have had to continuously adapt and acquire new skills whilst promoting the value of their traditional ones.

Four seasoned professionals drawn from different industry sectors share their career stories with us tonight. What have been the highlights (and lowlights) of their careers? What would they have done differently if they had the chance? Where do they see future opportunities in the profession developing?

Our speakers are:

  • Neil Infield, Business & IP Centre Manager, The British Library
  • Sally Connor, Strategic Analyst, EY
  • Cerys Hearsey, Principal & Lead Consultant, Postshift
  • Virginia Malone, Head of Library Services, University of Greenwich

There will be a short break for refreshments mid-way through the talks.

When we have heard from the final speaker, the panel will take your questions.

We must leave the British Library by 8pm but this doesn’t mean the end of the evening! There will be an opportunity to continue the conversation in a local pub.

Please meet in the networking area of the Business & IP Centre on the first floor. We will then move to the adjoining Orange Room.

The talks will start promptly at 6:15pm as we need to leave the British Library by 8pm.
