Tracy Pound, Managing Director, Maximity Limited


GDPR, Analytics, Big Data, IoT, Data Science - these all demand a high level of data awareness across every organisation. So why is it so difficult to get some organisations to take data management seriously?

This talk focused on how you can easily demonstrate to key decision makers how you add significant value as a vital business resource to assist with ensuring the integrity of data, hitting compliance requirements (e.g. GDPR) and mitigating business risk.

This was a great opportunity to hear a successful female IT manager challenging the data management community on how we can support our organisation's success.

Tracy was voted PCR’S Woman of the Year 2016 and one of the top 50 women in technology in 2014 and 2015. She was named CompTIA's Member of the Year in March 2017.

A member of CompTIA’s Board of Directors, she has over 32 years’ experience working in tech and has successfully implemented business systems and training programmes across many different industries from service and professional sectors through to retail, education and manufacturing. She founded Maximity in 2000 and co-founded an insurance brokerage with her husband in 2006.
