Scottish Curling boasts a rich history of fostering social inclusion, promoting the sport of curling, and achieving excellence internationally. Armed with a passion for driving positive transformation, their CEO Vincent Bryson saw the potential of data-driven decision-making and embraced the opportunity to lead Scottish Curling into a new era with our Data Leadership Programme.
Scottish Curling was looking to embark on a transformative journey to leverage data effectively and allocate resources strategically. It aimed to make data-informed choices about where to invest time, energy, and resources to foster growth and success. It was an exciting yet challenging prospect for their team, and like many other organisations across the UK – they weren’t quite sure where to start.
As a first step in understanding their requirements, Vincent enrolled in the Data Leadership Programme. This specially designed initiative empowers leaders in the UK with the tools they need to elevate their data knowledge and cultivate essential leadership skills. The program is tailored to guide leaders in designing, resourcing, and executing a data strategy for organisational change.
Unlike a technical course, the Data Leadership Programme catered to leaders who recognise data’s transformative potential but need guidance on practical implementation. It unites leaders from diverse backgrounds and industries across the UK, fostering collaboration and inspiration to leverage data optimally for organisational growth.
Empowered with a deeper understanding of data’s potential, Vincent is in the process of aligning data-driven strategies with the organisation’s broader goals and ambitions. Data governance, ethics, and strategic thinking have become fundamental to his decision-making and leadership process.
Beyond personal growth, Vincent’s participation in the program facilitated the expansion of his professional network. He connected with like-minded individuals facing similar challenges, offering a source of guidance and support as he navigates the implementation of data-driven strategies within Scottish Curling.
As they continue their data journey, Scottish Curling stands tall with a leader who not only comprehends the potential of data but also possesses the skills to leverage it effectively, creating thriving curling communities and unforgettable experiences for all involved. Watch this space – we look forward to seeing what Vincent and the team achieve with new data techniques in their toolkit.
