About the event

This presentation will provide an overview and insight of the development, types, relevance, applicability, benefits, how to interpret and deploy standards to provide value in your organization and go beyond the minimum requirements. I will also share firsthand experience in the involvement of the development of three standards that I have worked on behalf of the Standards Council of Canada, representing Canada as a Technical Expert internationally on the ISO Technical Committees.
