CDO Summer School

The Chief Data Officer Summer School was launched by Caroline Carruthers and Peter Jackson in partnership with Collibra, the global leader in data governance and catalog software, in 2018.

If you are a data leader navigating through uncharted territory, looking to understand your position better and seeking guidance from peers and a community of data enthusiasts, this programme is for you.

The Chief Data Officer Summer School provides unparalleled hands-on tutoring and enablement for data leaders. The summer school brings to class the content, guidance and best practices from the renowned book, The Chief Data Officer’s Playbook, written by Caroline and Peter.

​CDO Summer School 2021

The 10-week programme, developed by Caroline Carruthers herself, is made up of virtual seminars, providing hands-on instruction for the next-generation of CDOs.

The programme will feature the following topics: the secret ingredients to becoming a successful Chief Data Officer; having the right technology, tools and team; leading the change; strategy, culture and ethics. There will also be practical, proven assessments and methodologies to put into practice.

Caroline states “As businesses realise the power of data to transform their organisations and drive value, it is imperative for data leaders to understand how to successfully guide the data transformation journey. Through practical real-life examples, we intend to arm aspiring CDOs with the skills to make effective data-driven decisions and become even more influential within their organisations.”

With over 450 graduates in 2020, our 2021 programme build on this success, bringing together more data leaders from across the globe to learn, collaborate, and grow as part of a community of like-minded data professionals.
