Organisations must learn about emerging technologies, embrace them, pick a business problem and try and resolve it, as the cost of failure is small compared with what they will learn.

How Gareth is building a better working world

“Having worked on a large number of challenging technology-enabled change programmes, I am able to convince organisations to not hold back on the implementation of analytics. The most important lesson I’ve learned when it comes to implementing analytics and emerging technologies is to not be afraid to try. I help organisations by conveying this message, and support them in adapting to the rapid pace of change in technology and data.”
