Bob Larrivee


Looking for a keynote speaker at your next corporate event or conference? Here are some of the topics we cover.



Change Requires Respect

Resistance to change is normal, but when handled properly and with respect for each other’s views and ideas, the transition happens much more smoothly. In this session we explore the elements of respect in ways that help organizations motivate, and engage their employees.

Living in the Jetsonian Age

This Hanna-Barbera cartoon creation of the future was originally aired in September of 1962. It focused on a futuristic family known as the Jetsons living in a world of flying cars, robot servants, holographic imaging, buildings constructed using instant cement, video phones and watches, and a wide array of other devices we are now beginning to see on a regular basis. (Yes, even flying cars and printed concrete buildings are now a reality.)

Information Governance: What is happening?

According to AIIM. “51% of organizations polled have had data-related incidents in the past 12 months, including 16% suffering a data breach – half from external hacking and half from staff”. This session looks at of the scale of IG issues organizations are facing, the drivers to bring it under control, and the effectiveness of process improvement and automation to bring it under control.

The Present is Past; The Future is Now

This presentation looks at the evolutionary steps in information management, leveraging a combination of slides and short videos to present the recent past and near future with an emphasis on how it all – including humans – may interact with information management systems. The look at the distant future, say 30 years from now, presents use of new and evolving devices bringing the audience to the edge with emerging ideas and concepts for the future found in the writings of such visionaries as Dr. Stephen Hawking, Dr. Michio Kaku and Dr. Ray Kurzweil.

Do you see it the flow?

Based on an actual process scenario – one in which I was an actor – This session presents the audience with a brief business scenario and process map and showing a current state flow. The discussion will then focus on ways to improve this process with or without technology by understanding the importance of process maps, identifying areas for improvement, assessing the impact of process change, and preparing a future state vision.

Content Impacts Process

This session looks at the inter-relationship between content and process and how a change in managing content will impact process and the ways people work. The audience is presented with several scenarios in which the way content is managed has changed and the impact those changes had on the organizational processes. The focus then turns to the audience where discussion will focus on their particular experiences or challenges in an effort to help them gain better insight to impact assessment.

Just keep everything forever!

This session explores the need for governance in relation to compliance at the regulatory, industry and geographic level. A general overview of the need for governance of all information and information management practices sets the tone to develop a clearer understanding of  the importance of governance, identifying areas where governance is lacking, and assessing current and future governance requirements.

Living in a Mobile World

Mobile devices continue to be a driving force and challenge for many organizations in relation to managing content and records. This session presents a combination of research data and common issues related to the use of mobile device use for the capture and management of content and records. Topics in this session include the lack of and need for governance and security strategies in relation to the use of mobile devices.

Driving Process Improvement (PI) and Business Process Management (BPM)

This session provides valuable insight on the strategic and tactical drivers moving businesses to incorporate PI and BPM into their practices as well as some of the challenges they face in the implementation phase. This session looks at strategic business drivers for Process Improvement and BPM, challenges and barriers to implementation, and actions businesses can take to move their initiatives forward.

Records Management and eDiscovery for Legal, Compliance and Information Management Professionals!

In this session we look at the expanding digital world of information management, where corporate records now consist of anything ranging from paper to video files. We discuss the challenges presented in managing this information to meet legal and compliance requirements and the related impact of how information is managed to eDiscovery initiatives.

To Train or not to train… 

Technology requires planning to be successful. You must understand the purpose of the technology within your organization and you must train the employees on how to use it properly. So the question is not to train or not to train, the question is how to train.  Training must match the user profile. Users do not need to know about back-ups and administration. Help desk needs to know what the users have and how to support it. Context, timing, and focus on competency are key in providing a training program that will deliver solid and immediate results. The better trained the employee, the more efficient the business.

Co-authoring: Increasing the Value of Collaboration

You need to have your teams update various documents but the time it takes to check-out, modify, and check-in slows the process. You would like to see what others are changing in a document quickly and not have to wait until the document is made available again. You would like a collaborative tool that allows authors to modify their sections when they are available as opposed to waiting for the document to be ready. This session explores various approaches in collaborative co-authoring.

Open the Flow – Automate your Content Intensive Process

For many organizations, processes become slow due to the amount of paper, digital content, and human interactions required to conduct daily business transactions. Review and approval cycles, capturing and processing in-bound information all have an impact. The key is to automate where and when possible, to open those processes, and improve operational efficiency. In this session we look at ways to unclog business processes through the use of recognition and automation technologies.
