Andy is an experienced speaker on data and information issues and has spoken at conferences and events throughout the UK, Europe and the Middle East. He is adept at presenting  technical concepts to non-technical audiences and has gained a reputation as an engaging and informative speaker.

Andy regularly speaks about the challenges presented by data in the twenty-first century and about the capabilities that organisations need to develop in order to meet those challenges. He draws on a wealth of experience and anecdotes from over 30 years of working with data at all levels in organisations and across the UK higher education sector.

In addition to standard conference speaking situations Andy has worked extensively in smaller workshop-style settings, presented through interpreters to non-English speaking audiences, delivered webinars and corporate videos, presented to Parliamentary committees and has done some after-dinner speaking.


Andy’s presentation on ‘Data, data everywhere’ was a timely reminder of the challenges faced and opportunities offered by an ever-evolving data landscape. His beautifully poetic analogy to Coleridge’s ‘Rime of the Ancient Mariner’ was an intellectual high point!
