This is continuing my report from Data Insight Leaders 2017 Day Two. That is, day two of a useful Summit (that I’m chairing), held in Barcelona. In this post I summarise this final day of an enjoyable event. I’m not just saying it’s good because I chaired this conference, honest! Talking to the actual data insight leaders who attended (and made up most of our audience), they agreed it was.. Read More
After a pause in blogging, for a much-needed holiday, I’ve returned with a debrief from day one of Data Insight Leaders Summit 2017.

“Insurance Marketing & Distribution Summit Europe 2015” proved to be a great event. There were interesting speakers, a range of topics & plenty of opportunity for interaction. Plus, it was a pleasure to share with this group myself, more on that later. Following previous reviews, of events that were useful for getting close to leaders on whom insight leaders focus less (IT, Digital, CX), I was back with Marketing & Sales… Read More
