Call us nerds if you like, but we have a passion for information management strategy, delivery and training, with collectively over 50,000 hours experience. Our exceptional consultants know how to address the issues and pitfalls in information governance, having led, managed, planned and delivered projects of all sizes across the globe. As a preferred service provider of Active Navigation in Europe, we also offer unparalleled expertise in delivering implementation, training and consultancy on projects using Active Navigation software. We’d love to talk to you if you’d like to share your problems.

Connexus IG - Chris DeweyCHRIS DEWEY

Chris worked as Principal Consultant at Active Navigation for fifteen years, the market leading information governance software manufacturer, planning and delivering client projects, ranging from small local Government offices to global corporations. In parallel, he worked extensively on the rulesets used by Active Navigation clients to identify ROT (redundant, obsolete & trivial), sensitive data and to generate metadata for migration to ECM. Despite working for a software vendor, Chris’ ethos has always been to consider the software to be merely a tool to make the delivery of information governance more efficient, a primary principle in the approach of all our consultants, who  focus on business objectives first to determine the issues to be resolved before engaging with software. Wearing a different hat, Chris has run the Mike Oldfield magazine for over 30 years, and has even written a book about him – we think he’d do OK on Mastermind!
