Panel: Building a diverse data and analytics team

Action-orientated session! Leave with practical ideas and make a difference to your organisation right away

  • How do we find, motivate and retain new skills for data management and data science?
  • How should we encourage the younger generation to consider a career in data (and analytics)?
  • Diversity and recruitment: how can we attract more women and other minorities to data teams?
  • How can we encourage a more inclusive organisational culture?
  • How can we close the gender gap to speed up gender diversity in senior leadership positions?
  • Diversity and data: how are firms using data/analytics to track and reach diversity goals?



Panel: Strengthening reporting for reduced risk, improved efficiency and transparency
Regulations are requiring more and more granular data for analytical and modelling purposes and regulators have been discussing the desire to collect data directly rather than from reports, so firms have to provide data and analytics to satisfy many different requests.

  • What are the regulators doing in this space to help the industry improve reporting?
  • How are firms responding and to what extent can regtech and technologies like data lakes help?
  • Impact of regulatory reporting standards - how practically can you use standards and what value do they bring? When do data standards really bring value beyond just regulatory reporting?
  • What applications are there for data standards, data models and identifiers as provided by the regulators to enable a more data driven approach?

An informative event with a diverse group of presenters and topics each relevant to my role somehow. This gave me and my colleagues some ideas on how to development our data governance framework further and also emphasised the importance of stakeholder engagement which outlined difficulties we all experience. All in all, a very worthwhile event

The Data Management Summit provided an excellent opportunity to hear about different initiatives underway in the market, and the experiences of practitioners across a range of industries, both through presentations and individual networking conversations. I have taken away a number of key points that will enable me to make change recommendations in my company, substantiated by the experiences of others that were shared at the Summit.

I always make sure to attend the twice-yearly Data Management Summit as I find it brings together the right industry thought leaders, and always has forward thinking and thought provoking sessions. The speakers bring real experience, not blue sky thinking, and are very willing to share their experiences - good and bad! It is a very useful event to attend.
