5 reasons why data is good for your business


Synopsis: The usage of data and how it can help your business is a hot topic. While acknowledging that data held by any business should be fully compliant with the law of the land, you definitely should not be scared to use data in a positive way.

James Ealey, Director at NGI Solutions, will give you five key reasons why and how data can be used positively by your business – which can help your bottom-line, provide opportunities to invest in your people, measure impact and identify future growth.

He is a member of the Market Research Society (MRS) and is also qualified with the PG Diploma from the Chartered Institute of Marketing (PGDipM).
