Data Board

Board Roundtable

Dallas
March 24, 2020

Here’s what you need to know for the Board Roundtable. Please RSVP.

Get answers to tough questions you can’t discuss anywhere else in one quick morning.

Join us for a few hours of great, off-the-record discussions on the challenges of a unique role like yours. Everyone in the room will be leading data strategy at a big company.

No vendors, sponsors, press, small businesses, or junior/front-line staff allowed.

This is a meeting for people like you, with jobs like yours, at companies like yours — and problems like yours.

Attendees will be from member companies and invited guests from similarly-sized companies.

This is a sample of our bigger, more in-depth Board Meetings. Prospective members get to experience the incredibly valuable discussions we have, and members get an extra session of great conversations.

Important Notes

  1. Only RSVP if you can definitely attend. This is a structured conversation with facilitators and limited seats. (If you can’t make it, please give us enough warning to invite someone from the waitlist.)
  2. This meeting is confidential. You will be required to agree to our confidentiality rules when you register.

  • 8:15 AM – 8:35 AM — Breakfast Discussions
  • 8:35 AM – 8:45 AM — Welcome and Introduction
  • 8:45 AM – 10:00 AM — Facilitated Large Group Discussions on Benchmarking and Critical Issues: We’ll begin our first large group discussion by benchmarking how we run our programs against the other companies in the room. Learn about different approaches to leadership, team structure, where the program lives, budgets, staffing, and more. Then, we’ll dive into strategic questions around mission-critical issues. What are your must-solve problems, how are you prioritizing issues, and what are your top strategic initiatives? (We’ll also talk about what we don’t yet know, emerging issues, and how to avoid uncharted risks.)
  • 10:00 AM – 10:10 AM — Break
  • 10:10 AM – 11:15 AM — Small Group Discussions: These are fast-paced, peer-to-peer discussions where you suggest discussion topics, vote for your favorites, and join the conversations that interest you most. It means you’re spending the entire time talking about exactly the right things for you, not some canned agenda set by meeting planners months in advance.

Why is there no fee and who is funding this?

The Data Board is a community for people leading data strategy at the world’s biggest companies. We have members-only meetings a few times a year.
