A number of Precedents have been added to the Jersey Fiduciary database this month.


Earlier this month, Lisa gave a case study on Pink Link at a KM conference in London. There was a good mixture of KM professionals from London and regional firms in attendance.

We have been undertaking some ad hoc Pink Link refresher courses for various individuals and teams. Please let us know if you think your team could benefit with a refresher and we will put something in the diary for you.
