Dialog Rolls Out Quantum2 Program Across Europe

Dialog Corp., a Thomson business and an international provider of online-based information services, has announced plans for the European rollout of its Quantum2 development program for information professionals. According to the announcement, the program, which builds on and enhances a successful Dialog program first introduced in 1993, provides training and tools to enhance professional development, with a special focus on strategies to develop leadership skills and demonstrate the value of professional information services within organizations.

To coincide with the launch of Quantum2, Dialog announced the appointment of Liz Blankson-Hemans to head the program in Europe. Blankson-Hemans joins Dialog from Clifford Chance, a leading law practice, where she was manager of the firm's Central Information Services division.

"Information professionals are constantly facing the need to prove the effectiveness of content selection and managed information access within their organizations," said Blankson-Hemans, manager of Information Professional Development for Dialog EMEAP. "Our goals with Quantum2 are to help information professionals not only communicate the value of information centers, but take a leadership role in developing an information strategy for their organizations.

"Having spent 15 years as an information professional, I am acutely aware [of] what people in our industry need to help them develop and grow. Dialog's Quantum2program is unique in the industry, and I am delighted to be involved at such an exciting time for the company, and the industry as a whole."
