My name is Emily Overton and I’m a nerd for hire!

Records Management Girl Consulting is a business born from my experiences. Initially, I was on Twitter, talking constantly about records management. People seemed to find my Tweets helpful and, subsequently, I started a business offering consultancy and training services.

People often comment on my enthusiasm for records management, but it doesn’t have to be dull!   I love undertaking large projects that change an organisation’s approach to records management.  I have over fifteen years of industry experience to share and, furthermore, I’m known for delivering projects within budget and on time!

I’m an  IRMS accredited professional and was recently awarded a fellowship.  I’m committed to professional development and consequently, I regularly take part in workshops to keep my skills current. In addition, my qualifications include the PRINCE2 certification and a Post Graduate Diploma in Records Management and Information Rights.

Between 2011 and 2019 I served on the IRMS Senior Leadership Team. My roles during my tenure included Director of Groups and Director of Training and Representation.

Additionally, I am a documented author of the NHS Code of Practice for Records Management. This involved working with NHS England, the Department of Health, the National Archives, the Information Governance Alliance and NHS Digital.

I am available for consultancy projects and my specialities include:

  • GDPR & Records Management
  • SharePoint Information Architecture
  • Information Asset Registers
  • Data Flows
  • Offsite Storage
  • BS10008:2014 & Scanning
  • Retention Schedules & Policies
  • E-Payslips
  • Systems Implementation
  • Contract Management
  • Audits

If it falls under the information banner, then I have the knowledge!  I am also available for interviews, blogging, articles, speaking engagements and training sessions.
