From personal, through team and departmental, to organisational – the importance of brand within the data sector has arguably never been more keenly felt than it is now. And with brand comes influence. Utilising brand to influence in areas like talent acquisition, self-promotion, side hustles and gigs and general thought leadership and community activity is now a key component part of a data leader’s toolset.

Rob and Adam talk through the importance of brand & influence to today’s Data Leader, discussing:

  • The influence brand can have in attracting and retaining data talent.
  • The importance of communication and story-telling skills in influencing internal stakeholders
  • Simple, pragmatic ideas on how to improve brand and influence for leaders and teams in data
