MBN Paris DataIQ

On the 19th March 2015, The British Embassy in Paris, UK Trade and Investment in partnership with DataIQ and GB Group plc are hosting a free to attend conference which will address the massive upside of data whilst mitigating the risk of the downside using the latest technologies.  The conference, which will take place in the Residence of the British Ambassador, Paris, will feature MBN Chairman Paul Forrest and CEO Michael Young hosting round tables on “New Business Models benefiting from Big Data” and “Meeting the Demand for Data Skills” respectively.

French and UK experts from business, government, academic and technology will present case studies, demonstrating how implementing strategies for big data and data analytics can revolutionise business models in many sectors of the economy.  An innovative, highly interactive format will feature expert led panel debates, followed by a series of roundtable discussions by themes, shaping the future of Big Data and hosted by key thought leaders.  Alongside Paul and Michael, the provisional programme also features panel members such as Pete Markey, CMO Post Office Ltd, Henry Lawson, CEO autoGraph, Jim Conning, MD Royal Mail Data Services and Rob Denton, Head of Client Innovation & Customer Experience, Atos Worldline as well as others.

Michael commented, “It is an honour for MBN to be approached to contribute and host a round table at this important conference for the data industry.  We have been working with increasing numbers of candidates and clients in Europe, and the message is clear; meeting the demand for data skills is still a talking point for employers.  We believe more needs to be done by academia, whilst at the same time employers need to do more to develop their raw talent into full fledged practitioners.”
