BIMA Breakfast Briefing | Are you getting the most from your data?

BIMA Breakfast briefing

Is data living up to the hype and are businesses reaping the rewards from being data-driven? Or are we stuck in a data rut? Are brands living in the age of data opportunity? Or is data creating more problems than opportunities?

On the 16th May 2019 the BIMA data council is hosting its inaugural event to explore the key data challenges faced today by businesses and how well they are being addressed. Our council chair, Anna Gevorgyan, will kick off by sharing her experiences from Expedia and how they now treat data as one of their most strategic assets.

The session will then lead onto discussion on what a mature data-driven business should look like and how far most businesses actually are from reaching maturity. It will then look at the ideal data strategies to drive maturity and business growth.

Our council is represented by a cross-section of brands and agencies and we would love you to join the debate, whatever your perspective.
