Neil Byers

Strategy - Technology - Data

Leading the creation and growth of digital products

Strategy

I like to think about the “big picture”, what the future might bring, and how we can make things happen:

  • Developing long-term vision and objectives, focusing on impact and relevance.
  • Using wide industry knowledge, technology expertise, and integration skills to create complex products.
  • Building business cases based on user needs and implementing across organisations.

Technology

Technology is my passion. Empowering me to build products, be creative and drive innovation:

  • Technology advocate, enthusiastic about its benefits to society, organisations and individuals.
  • Expertise in the development and management of enterprise level digital products.
  • Wide range of experience with different platforms, programming languages and the digital eco-system.

Data

I use data to understand customers better, remove the guess work and build better products:

  • Using analytics, user research and testing to drive better product decisions.
  • Data management and integration to provide unique insights and opportunities.
  • Data visualisation to aid investigation, analysis and reporting.
