Data at the heart of the future says UCAS head at Worcs forum

30th August 2018

Data sits at the heart of all businesses for the future, Clare Marchant, former Worcestershire County Council chief exec and now CEO at UCAS, will tell the Three Counties Big Breakfast on Thursday 13 September.

Addressing the challenges and opportunities of technology-enabled change, she will discuss the development and delivery of the next generation of information, including UCAS’ own experience in admissions and data services.

Clare has an impressive track record in the successful delivery of technology-enabled change in the public and private sectors. She started her career in production management before joining Deloitte and leading IT-enabled change programmes for a number of well-known brands.

The Big Breakfast at the Three Counties Showground is hosted by Harrison Clark Rickerbys, Bruton Knowles and the Three Counties Showground, in association with the West Midlands branch of the Institute of Directors. It brings together business leaders and entrepreneurs from across the region to discuss key business issues, sharing insights and discussing future plans.

It includes a chance to meet other delegates, as well as have breakfast and listen to the key speaker, with an opportunity to ask questions.

Robert Capper, head of commercial team and sectors at Harrison Clark Rickerbys, said: “Clare’s own experience is relevant to so many businesses; data, how to manage, protect and safely use it, is absolutely central to commercial success now and for the future. I’m delighted that she has agreed to speak to us – I know that she will interest and inspire.”

Ken Nottage, Chief Executive of Three Counties said: “We are looking forward to welcoming delegates to the final Three Counties Big Breakfast of the year at the Three Counties Showground. With Clare speaking about data being at the heart of the future we are in for an insightful morning.”
