In 2016 I set out to create a business that raised the bar in the way organisations deliver business-changing value, through the use of data and analytics.
The end of April marked 4 years in scaling a business that does that, and I could not be prouder of what we’ve achieved, how we’ve achieved it and lives we have impacted in doing so.
Our values of being brave, being authentic, being focussed, being a crew and being data have been at the heart of the journey. At this milestone I wanted to share our thanks and successes with you. None of what we’ve achieved could have been done without the trust and relationships that our amazing clients, partners and community have built with us.
Over 50 organisations have trusted us to support them across the Public, Private and 3rd Sectors. All with the same aspiration in mind: to improve the lives of their teams, customers and stakeholders. Through this, those organisations combined have generated multi-millions of pounds worth of business value.
Alongside the amazing commercial value our clients have achieved, our work has helped apply data to support vital work in global humanitarian aid, ending world poverty, preserving the cultural heritage of the UK, protecting and enhancing the arts and culture sector, providing support to those living in high risk flood zones and helping families who have children with Cancer. I could not be prouder to support this kind of work.
Supporting strategic thinking and then delivering on those strategies has been our bread and butter, and technology has played an important role in the success for our clients. Our data solutions have been delivered using market leading technology platforms from vendors AWS, Microsoft Azure, Google, Snowflake, Cloudera, Apache Spark, DBT, Matillion, Talend, Alteryx, Power Bi, Tableau, Qlik, Looker and more.
We’ve established an exclusive members club. A global movement that shapes what it means to be a modern business and data leader. It brings the community together to share best practices, network with peers, and move the industry forward. The CDO Hub has become the go to community for the most countries leading senior data leaders
Our thirst for learning and sharing has also been satisfied through the launch of our podcast series, Hub & Spoken. We’ve been joined by wold class business, data and technology leaders sharing their stories.
Through education, coaching, industry leading events and academia we have been able to impact 1000s of people to level up their knowledge and capability. See some of our presentations at Big Data LDN
Finally (and I cant thank these guys enough), thank you to our amazing team who have helped create this wonderful business that is helping to serve our clients, community, partners and friends. Capped off by being chosen as DataIQs Top100 in 2020 gives a real sense that we’ve created something special.
Thank you again for playing a part in this journey, for your support, sharing with us and helping to level up the value data and analytics is delivering to the world.
