Today’s organisations are looking to do ever more with their data. They’re investing in new resources, skills, and technologies to bring a more holistic and predictable view of customers to life. And they’re relying on trusted data, modern and sustainable architecture, and next generation analytics to do it.
At this event, we’re going to show why now is the time for your company to take data seriously – and how to get started. You’ll have a chance to discuss your own experiences, build new connections, and learn how leading figures across the continent are creating and managing their data strategy to accelerate time to value. But above all, we’ll demonstrate how to bring intelligent execution to your data strategy.
And you’re in for more than compelling business insights and networking. We’ll also deliver a premium selection of wines to your doorstep ahead of the event, which you’ll enjoy under the guidance of a top wine expert on the night. The grand finale will be a peer-to-peer wine tasting competition, where you’ll challenge your peers to win the title of ‘Chief Wine Officer’ – the best taster in the room. We hope to see you there!
This exclusive networking experience is open to just 15 senior data leaders from large organisations across the UK and EU. It’s the perfect opportunity to meet likeminded individuals, build new business connections, and to learn how to extract more value from your data while sampling some of the world’s finest wines.
