Episode 04: The Silent Disability - Overcoming career challenges with Nicola Askham
This episode will discuss issues around having a silent disablity and how Nicola has overcome some challenges in her career.
Nicola is known as The Data Governance Coach, helping organisations understand and
manage their data better.
For two decades she has helped organisations reduce costs and inefficiencies. Typically,
people turn to her because their data is a mess and they need help unravelling it, or
because they realise that new initiatives are failing because of poor quality data.
As well as providing coaching and consulting, she also runs training courses because she
feels it is important to give people the skills to make sure that data is used to solve
problems and make better informed decisions.
Nicola initially worked for a leading UK Bank and moved into consultancy in 2009. Since
then she has worked with clients across a wide range of sectors.
Formerly a long standing Director and Committee Member of DAMA UK, Nicola regularly
writes and presents on data governance best practice.
