When most people hear digital transformation, it’s almost always the technology that first springs to mind.

That’s a mistake.

You can have the most sophisticated tech stack in the world, but if you don't build your organization’s data culture, your digital transformation efforts will be for naught.

Today’s guest, Mai AlOwaish, Chief Data Officer at Gulf Bank, knows this better than anyone. As the first female CDO in Kuwait, she’s on a mission to ensure everyone at Gulf Bank becomes an expert in the data they use every day.

Join us as we discuss:

  • Why data and people are more important than technology for digital transformation
  • The pioneering Data Ambassador program Mai spearheaded at Gulf Bank
  • The importance of diversity in data science and technology overall
