Speaker Profile

Peter is passionate about data, and about how data can drive innovation to transform organisations. He was the first Head of Data at the Pensions Regulator and then went on to be the first Chief Data Officer at Southern Water. So he has been through the mill twice in recent succession as a First Generation CDO. However, before joining the Pensions Regulator, Peter had been developing Data Strategies for businesses in the FMCG and Financial Services sectors for over a decade. First and foremost, Peter is driven by a strategic approach to data, and believes strongly in the value of demonstrating the 'art of the possible' and expanding colleagues' understanding about data management, data technologies, data science and data governance. Peter firmly believes that data strategies must have a business outcome and should be aligned to business objectives. Given any opportunity Peter will talk about data and try to enthuse those he is with.
