Get the Job You Deserve

Our students learn quickly and use their knowledge to get a better job and make more money. 

Our Courses:

Data Governance, made easy

Start making progress

If you get data governance right, many data problems go away. Costs drop, profits rise, and your organisation makes better decisions.

Our lessons make the complex, simple. They are less than 5 minutes long and are tied to real-world data issues your firm will have today.

Data strategy

Learn to craft a Data Strategy

Start making progress

Your data strategy must align to the business strategy. We show you how to create tight business alignment, even if you are locked out of the boardroom.

When you have a great data strategy, your workload becomes manageable and progress becomes real.

Data Monetisation and Valuation

Start making progress

CDOs have 18-24 months to show value, otherwise they’re shown the door.

Unless you know how to confidently state the value of data – an intangible asset – your business will always question whether you are adding value or just costing them time and money.
