Bob Boiko

Tim and I are at our second day of InfoCamp. Bob Boiko, teacher, consultant, business person, developer and information leader, is doing the opening session today. He’s pushing the crowd to really think about what tools we have in our toolboxes as information professionals. We have to think practically and concretely so we can understand our roles which will help us understand our value to an organization and can work successfully in an organization. He’s doing a great job of helping people to think about what they mean when they say, “I can help you find the information you need.” How is that helpful to your client? What concrete tools and skills are you bringing to your client?Since we’re in the Information Age, it only makes sense that information professionals lead the information age. There’s a lot of untapped value in information professionals as leaders.
