Keynote Speakers

  1. Dr Alexandra Eveleigh’s keynote - Opening proceedings for this year’s Conference and setting the tone for Recordkeeper 3.0 - Dr Eveleigh focused on the need not only to change what we do but to change how we think, to embrace the destabilising reality of the modern work environment.
  2. Dr Ros Lynch's keynote - Opening the second day of Conference – with a day theme of ‘our workplaces’ - Dr Ros Lynch of the UK Intellectual Property Office (IPO) took us expertly on a tour of the challenges facing those who regulate and ‘police’ the intellectual property (IP) world in a time of rapid technological change. At the outset, she stressed that the main task of copyright oversight remained trying to balance the rights of IP holders with user access.
  3. J. Willgoose Esq’s keynote - Opening the third and final day of Conference – with a day theme of ‘our profession’ - Using a powerful combination of images, music and narrative, J. Willgoose Esq. set out the evolution of the band Public Service Broadcasting and some of the key moments, barriers, creative and other processes that had informed the band’s musical evolution and relationship with records.
