Housemark’s Housing Data and Analytics Summit on 9 November will feature a range of in and out of sector data experts speaking on a variety of topics.

Over the last few weeks, we’ve been introducing our expert speakers and this week it’s time to find out more about Rebecca Reed, Head of Insight and Development and Verity Richards, Head of Dispute Support at the Housing Ombudsman. Rebecca and Verity will join Abel Aboh, Data Management Lead, Bank of England to discuss the ‘key to successful data, knowledge, and information management.’

In this session we will hear practical advice on successful data and information management from Abel, a high performing data management and data governance professional. We will also explore the recommendations around record-keeping and data management outlined by the Housing Ombudsman’s Knowledge and Information Management report on how data can be used to increase efficiencies.
