Speaking and Writing

What is it?

I have spoken at a large number of events in my career. For HE, much of this has been around the HEDIIP (now HESA) data capability model and data governance. I have presented in the breakout sessions at SROC http://www.sroc.ac.uk, HESA Data Future Events and a number of sector groups including HESPA (www.hespa.ac.uk) and CHEIA https://www.cheia.ac.uk.

I have collaborated on a European Erasmus+ project hosted by the University of Gent. I also have offered advice and consultancy – free of charge – to a number of international universities includes the Asian University for Women.

I regularly speak at universities to all levels of academic and professional staff . This is matched with writing about how data can enrich the HE sector. Those articles are commissioned and published by WONKHE (www.wonkhe.com)

What can I do with it?

This is a bespoke service based on the needs of an institution, a group of institutions or a sector body. We work hard to understand what messages need to be carried through any speaking or writing engagement, and then engage with internal communications groups to ensure we are in line with the university’s needs. Additionally we ensure that any material created is reusable without the need for a further engagement.

Who else is using it?

This year I have spoken at over ten universities and three major sector bodies.

How much does it cost?

As bespoke engagements, costs are fixed depending on scope. We do a number of free speaking events for causes we support such as SROC.

Can this service be delivered remotely?

Since the advent of the Corona virus and the associated social distancing rules, we have worked hard to move the majority of our services to remote collaboration. This has involved writing new material, sourcing collaboration applications, rehearsing remote delivery techniques and, of course, speaking to our customers about their needs, We have been overwhelmed with the support from both our existing and potential new customers in endorsing this approach. We already have two data strategy projects being delivered remotely with other services soon to follow.

We do believe we can adapt to the current restrictions in a positive and engaging way. Please get in touch for more detail, and to receive our short ’successful collaboration’ paper we’ve just finished!

Where can I find out more?
