Caroline Carruthers, Chief Executive of data consultancy Carruthers & Jackson, tells the stories of, and shares insights from, her two acclaimed books on the Chief Data Officer


Caroline Carruthers was one of the early Chief Data Officers in the UK at a time when very little was known about the role. Over the length of her tenure she learnt, the hard way, what it meant to be a CDO and how critical the role was to the growth and success of Network Rail and then law firm Lowell. 

Caroline now runs data consultancy Carruthers & Jackson with Peter Jackson, another CDO who has a passion for sharing the lessons he's learnt. 

Together they have authored two highly acclaimed data focused books in two years, The Chief Data Officer's Playbook and Data Driven Business Transformation: How to Disrupt, Innovate & Stay Ahead of the Conversation. That shows how much knowledge they have to share. In practice, they spent years researching the books during their roles as CDOs.

In this video, Carruthers shares tips on what companies need to look for when developing a Chief Data Officer role, as well as the importance of data quality in today's business environment.
