On this page you can learn who I am, what I do, and what I write about. Questions and comments are welcome, please use this form to get in touch.
Who I Am
Currently, I lead the data and analytics office for the Middle East's largest luxury retailer, building their resilience in a post pandemic world. Previously, I was the Director of Data for Dyson, where I worked on topics as diverse as machine learning for hairdryer manufacturing to scaled automotive analytics.
At Google, I led the development of the global sales analyst skills curriculum, which ignited a passion for talent development that I also get to channel in my role as advisor to the University of Oxford's social data science degrees. Before that, I worked on a number of digital media ventures, often involving data.
In the UK, I was named one of the top 100 people in data-driven business, one of the top 50 data innovators, and one of the top 10 data futurists. I was also invited to be a Partner in the Forbes Ignite coalition. That was nice of them.
My surname is pronounced den (like bear den) Roy-ion (like union).
