Starting Data Conversations &
Leveraging Data for Competitive Advantage
LEARN – SHARE – NETWORK The CDO Summit is the premier event for
digital & data leaders: March 28, 2018 | London, UNITED KINGDOM
April 25, 2018 | NYC, UNITED STATES
June 27, 2018 | San Francisco, UNITED STATES
The UK CDO Summit on 28 March will dive deep into data with a keynote from Jacqueline Harrison, Information Architect at NFU Mutual on “Starting Data Conversations“
In this session, Jacqueline will share recent experiences in developing approaches to address the ‘people’ and ‘metadata’ aspects of building a corporate data management capability.
We talk often about data management frameworks, the disciplines involved, the roles we need to create and the processes we need to build. We hear less about how we take people on the journey with us and what information base we need to support people in their “data conversations”.
This session will outline:
Why “data conversations” are important
What hinders those conversations?
How to create an approach to grow people confidence and capability
An approach to building an information base to support our data conversations
Following Jacqueline’s keynote will be the Data Panel speaking on “Leveraging Data for Competitive Advantage“.
This panel will explore the challenges and opportunities organizations face when leveraging their data for competitive advantage. While developments in AI, DL, ML, and cognitive systems are making the headlines, they are not required, and the panelists will discuss these and simpler ways of establishing business-driven global knowledge and social collaboration strategies that will enable the organization to deliver real-time, actionable insights to the right people at the right time.
Panelists Include: • David Mathison (moderator): Founder/CEO at CDO Club • Amit Kama: CEO of Kamedia Digital • Jacqueline Harrison: Information Architect at NFU Mutual • Matthew Fryer: VP, Chief Data Science Officer at Hotels.com • Patrick Hoffstetter: Founder eG10(FranceCDOclub), Jahia board member and CEO Newmedia360 • Roberto Maranca: Chief Data Officer at Lloyds Banking Group
We are so excited to have all of these data leaders in the same room sharing their insights!

For many vendors, its become increasingly difficult to keep track of who is in charge at their client’s organizations. Shifting budgets, internal battles over head-count, new decision-makers in the C-Suite. Almost every sector has been affected.
Seasoned leaders with experience in digital transformation and data-driven culture are increasingly getting the keys to the kingdom, reporting to the CEO and the Board.

We can help get your message to these highly coveted, C-level digital and data decision-makers. We provide our partners with unparalleled access to the world’s top data, analytics, and digital executives, and enable you to learn more about their projects, needs, timelines, and budgets.
