I started my career working in consultancy, designing and delivering data strategies and then I was head of data at The Pensions Regulator and chief data officer at Southern Water before taking up my current role.
To be the co-author of two best-selling books: The Chief Data Officers’ Playbook and Data Driven Business Transformation.
Pele, the perfect combination of talent, focus and hard work.
No. 2019 was my first full year at L&G and we achieved far more than I expected; the culture shift was significant in its pace. Also, the success of the second book, Data Driven Business Transformation; we certainly didn’t expect it to become a best-seller within hours of its publication.
It’s going to be interesting. Already commentators are talking about the ‘AI Winter’. What will be the new buzz phrase? We’ve already ditched big data.
Embedding data and analytics into the heart of the business and effecting true business transformation.
It will remain two-fold for quite a while: legacy data ecosystem and applications; and finding the right skills and experience.
