Behind the Scenes of Data Innovation: Insights from a CDO

On today’s episode of FinTech Focus TV, Toby is joined by Martin French, Chief Data Officer (CDO) at Apex Group. 

In this episode, the pair discuss the evolving role of a CDO, bridging the gap between technology and business development, as Martin shares how to harness data for growth.

Martin believes a CDO must also be an effective salesperson. He shares that the role is not just about technical skills, but also involves creativity and storytelling— the ability to effectively present data in order to influence vital business decisions.
