Web launch signals arrival of new RIM consultancy
RECMAN Consulting Limited, founded by well known records and information manager, David Pryde (MRIM) is “open for business” and is ready to join the NZ recordkeeping community at the coal face. David was formally a Records Supervisor and Information Analyst at Auckland’s, North Shore City Council (before the super city) and more recently Auckland University of Technology where he was Records Manager.
As the NZ director of the Records and Information Management Professionals Australasia, I have always been aware of the important role that consultants have in the records & information management (RIM) community. In many cases the consultant or vendor is the first point of contact that an organisation will have with our profession, especially those without a Records Manager. It is this introduction that will set the foundation and mind set of all future interactions by that organisation with our members.
“No pressure“, but what a responsibility! We have a group of very talented and innovative practitioners in Australia and New Zealand covering all facets of the management of information. I want to do my part as an advocate for the RIM profession by promoting “good recordkeeping” as the only true foundation to drive business improvement, reduce costs and bring about legislative compliance as a result.
Yes, I want to market my business successfully, but I also want to promote this site as a resource for professional practitioners and as a starting point for those embarking on a RIM journey. I want to take the skills, knowledge and experience that I have developed over 20 years as a government recordkeeper, and share if with all organisations, public and private to improve records and information management capability across Australasia.
