Data Governance Conference

26th September

Woburn House, 20-24 Tavistock Square, London, WC1H 9HQ - Please follow this link for further directions.

09.30 - 16.00 (tbc)

This one-day conference will explore the context, theory and practice of good data governance. Attendees should leave with a better idea about how their framework for data governance should look and what their roadmap should comprise, including data security, data architecture, data ownership, data strategy and other things. We will also explore case studies from different institutions, at varying levels of maturity, and take advice from them about challenges and opportunities to be aware of.



10.00 – 10.45    The Context - David Kernohan, Wonkhe

Data has become a core component of HE regulation - but how good, and how relevant, is the data being used for these purposes? New processes for collection, and growing public visibility of sector data, have changed the landscape - both in terms of requirements and the way data choice frames the questions we ask.


10.45 – 11.45    The Theory - Alex Leigh, The Leigh Partnership

A session to share successful approaches to introducing data governance into complex institutions. We’ll investigate why a ’non invasive’ implementation should be your first choice, and how culture is at the centre of any long term success.


11.45 – 12.15    Things we can’t do - Participant break out session

A session to share with colleagues those knotty data management issues that make your life harder, the impact they have, and the themes that might help you to classify and start to manage them.


12.15 – 13.15     Lunch and networking


13.15 – 14.45    Provider case studies and Q&A

Hear from a number of institutions about their own data governance journey, including what has gone well, what hasn’t, and what to watch out for.


  • The Open University
  • University of St Andrews              
  • Sheffield Hallam University

14.45 – 15.00     Refreshments break
