People Power Data: how people will power your data ambitions
A Talk by Craig Paterson
Executive Education Advisor,

About this talk
Welcome to the whirlwind tour of “People Power Data”, The Data Lab’s leadership course on how to re-skill and up-skilling your organisation so that it can successfully compete, and shine, in today’s data-driven society.
Our course came into existence based upon a belief that not only is data critical to the ongoing success of modern organisations, but that it is people that will make the biggest difference between those that succeed and those that fail.
When considering skill requirements, organisations tend to focus on the needs of data professionals (people on a data career path, for example data analysts, data engineers, data scientists etc) at the expense of the needs of those impacted by the work these data professional do (customers and colleagues) and the people who need to create the space for everyone to succeed (data leaders).
This session will cover some of the key messages from the full course and hopefully leave you enthused and excited about what you, and your people, can do when they have the right data skills.
