Whether it’s a new vaccine, the introduction of a driverless racing car or the advancement of a hyper-personalised retail experience - across the economy, value creation is powered by good data.

The value of data is unlocked through its proliferation. The more you use data, the more you get back in the form of productivity, insight and innovation. So how can leaders enable more employees and customers to utilise data for better outcomes? And as businesses adjust to a new set of imperatives, from climate change to new ways of working, how can this data drive be achieved with sustainability, trust and choice at its core? 

Join our virtual roundtable to hear the secrets of data-driven businesses, discuss the obstacles to overcome and share your views on the opportunities to be realised.
