If you think you’ve got the qualities, then put yourself forward.What is the cost to enter?
There’s no cost: nominating yourself or a colleague is free.Can I nominate only one person?
There is no limit to the number of people you can nominate. As long as their experience and what they have achieved is relevant, then you can put forward as many people as you believe should be considered for the list. How is the final list decided upon?
DataIQ reviews every nominee, focusing on how they stack up in the following critical areas:
- Leadership within their organisations: How they demonstrate the importance and value of data and analytics, either by taking it to the very top level (Data Titans) or by showing how their solutions are impacting on the way data and analytics are deployed by clients (Data Enablers).
- Engagement: How they are interacting with the broader data and analytics industry. Are they playing an active role on an industry council or working group? Are they speaking at conferences/webinars, publishing thought leadership articles or involved in other external activities across the industry?
- Support DataIQ and our mission: We focus on advancing the profession of data and analytics through our membership programme, so involvement with what we are seeking to achieve can’t be a bad thing.
