Your organisation’s lifeblood
By virtue of new technologies, many organisations are acquiring substantial volumes of data. In some respects such organisations are sitting on an oil field, as data is increasingly value creating and as such should be treated as an asset.
As the future becomes increasingly unknowable and strategic plans devolve into a genre of fiction, data will be key to sensing what is happening in your market. Poor data leads to poor decisions and in turn poor actions. Organisations looking to thrive in the post-industrial era need to be data-driven, otherwise they are flying blind, missing both opportunities and threats.
Sample subthemes to explore include:
- How the macroenvironmental forces are making the world unknowable.
- Why data is key to situational awareness and thus survival.
- Why AI is only as good as the quality of your data.
- The role of people in data management.
- The link between data, risk and innovation.
- How to integrate data management with insight, knowledge and wisdom management.
- Why the relationship between the CFO and the CIO needs to adapt to the ‘new abnormal’.

What they are saying…
We wanted someone who would engage our leadership differently. Ade did this brilliantly. Engaging, fast paced and multifaceted. Just what was needed to shake things up a little in the last session of our conference!
We recently held a conference in Milan around “Digital” for our senior partners throughout the MED region (Italy, Spain and Portugal) and Ade joined us by VC as a keynote speaker. Even by VC Ade kept the audience captive with lots of note taking and it also provoked a lot of discussion after the event. One of the most compelling keynote speakers that we have had in the MED region.
Ade understands business and IT opportunities through the lens of executives and how to present this back in a concise manner with clear takeaways.
Ade spoke at an event for around 250 of our UK & Israel Technology team. Ade has a fantastic presentation style, and it was clear in the prep calls that he was able to take our overall theme of the event and link that to his presentation. I would highly recommend Ade as a motivational speaker and thought leader.
Ade McCormack sounds a much-needed clarion call for IT to “grow up” and become a mature business function.
