How do you achieve success as a Chief Data Officer? It is a role that is more important, yet more challenging, than it has ever been, with a rapidly expanding set of expectations from stakeholders in every part of the business.

Here to help us understand the CDO role, its evolution, and the keys to success is Gary Barr, Global Chief Data Officer at Legal & General Investment Management (LGIM). Drawing from his wealth of experience, Gary speaks about the three incarnations of the CDO – from data governance champion to air traffic-controller of AI-driven transformation – as well as the dangers of dividing teams into “offense” and defense”, the goal of the data mesh, and why AI regulation should be welcomed, not feared.

Join us as we discuss:

  • The rapid evolution of the CDO mandate and its responsibilities
  • Changing the operating model for data and AI adoption
  • The importance of qualitative and sentimental measures of ROI
