Dive into all things Data! 

Join Data & Digital Leader Brendan Ellis for an easy to understand class in why Data is vital to your Business and how to define your Data Strategy.

Brendan draws on years of experience having designed and delivered Data Strategies for companies across a number of industries. He will break down the sections so you can easily understand the elements which make up your Data manifesto. 

Data is the secret sauce of Business and understanding how to articulate the vision so others can see the direction is key in becoming a profitable and successful business. 

This class is ideal for:

  • an aspiring Data Leader who wants to understand the elements of a Data Strategy
  • a Subject Matter Expert (SME) in the Data space who wants to widen their understanding of the elements delivering a Strategy 
  • anyone with an interest in how Data makes a difference to a Business

Use this class to learn how to understand why a Data Strategy is important and create one which will set the direction for the future. 

You will learn

Document a Business you know well!



Your assignment is to briefly outline a Data Strategy.

  • Tip 1:Start with a Company you know well. This could be your current company, a previous company or one you would like to know. Selecting a company you have a good understanding about will ensure that your strategy outline is relevant and focused.
  • Tip 2: Don’t get too caught up in the details. Start with the high-level elements as described in the course. Go with your first thoughts; be instinctive. You can always change it later.
  • Tip 3: Challenge yourself to capture 3-5 bullet points under each section. In just the same way it took me a few attempts to get my first Data Strategy right, you may have to tweak yours a few times. You can use my suggestions and tailor them to your Business – data is incredibly versatile.


Most importantly, have fun, share your progress early and often, and exchange feedback with each other. This is an awesome opportunity for us to capture the power of data to improve your Business!
