Senior Consultant, TFPL
Specialist in bringing together and managing successful project teams with the relevant experience and expertise.
Vivienne Winterman, Senior Advisor, leads the I-Team work, as well as carrying out Advisory work. She has had considerable experience in the area of knowledge and information audits. Over the last few years she project managed several for government agencies, charities, telecommunication, legal and pharmaceutical companies.
This has enabled organisations to align their Knowledge and Information Services more closely with the business strategy to increase their value. This has led to reviewing and writing Knowledge and Information Management (KM) Strategies to leverage and maximise the use of the knowledge and information assets of an organisation and recommend ways to deliver value added information services, build communities and create a sharing culture. Vivienne has worked in a number of sectors including legal, information suppliers, publishers and government, and in particular has specialised in the pharmaceutical and health sectors.
The I-Team work includes a combination of advisory and project management work in advising on a solution for an information related issue and managing a team of contract staff to successfully carry out the work.
Vivienne Winterman worked as a freelance information specialist for six years before joining TFPL in 1995 as a consultant specialising in information management and techniques of dissemination. She previously held a number of information posts in the academic and private sector. Previous posts have been in the pharmaceutical sector and in HERTIS, a company providing a range of information services to business and industry.
