Leadership in the Big Data era

A presentation given at TEN (The Executive Network) in London on November 6th, 2013.

There is so much talk about Big Data, yet little practical advice to help organizations deal with it. 90% of all data ever created by the human race was created in the past two years alone – and the rate is accelerating. The real revolution, though, is that only the individual will be able to access all of his or her own data – companies must come to terms with this loss of control.

What is Big Data is, and how does it impact all businesses, their people and their organizations? What strategies can you employ to deal with this data revolution? And, how can you lead change in your organization, to embrace Big Data’s impact in all of your activities?
