Paul Laughlin, founder & MD of Laughlin Consultancy, chaired the 2018 Data Leaders Summit Europe in Barcelona (17-18 Oct 2018).

This was the third such annual event. Over 150 senior data leaders from across UK & Europe gathered in Barcelona for an engaging conference, full of interactive content. All agreed it was a very productive time and a great opportunity to hear the reality of progress and challenges faced by other practitioner leaders. Those attending included CDOs, Heads of Data Science or Analytics, as well as directors, plus other senior data or analytics roles.

Paul’s chairing was praised (for the third year running), as was the varied and relevant agenda designed by Worldwide Business Research. Many cited this as a rare event, as all the content was useful. The agenda was designed in response to interviews with a wide range of data leaders & a survey of data insight leaders. Those survey results are also available for download.

If you were unable to attend this premier event for Data Leaders, Paul has also provided two daily debriefs of insights from the summit. Those are available on our blog, Customer Insight Leader:

Data Leaders Summit 2018 – debrief on the grand finale

Let’s continue my debrief from chairing the Data Leaders Summit 2018 in Barcelona. It has been impressive that, even after a late night of consuming beverages, attendance & participation has still been high. Data Leaders are clearly a hardy bunch! All joking aside, the quality of both the speakers & audience questions have shown why this event is worth attending.
