Data Leadership - Regina Berengolts, Head of Data Science at TVSquared

Hear Regina Berengolts, Head of Data Science at TVSquared, discuss data leadership.

I’d like to introduce you to Regina Berengolts, Head of Data Science at TVSquared.

Regina is a recognised data leader within The Data Lab network and has provided great insights to many organisations on how to succeed with data science, and how to lead in the data space.

People often struggle to know when and how to utilise Data Science. I asked Regina, as a data science leader, if she could share some of her experiences of how her organisations overcame the hype around data science to best drive value. To set the scene, I first of all asked Regina to give an overview of her journey to becoming a leader in Data Science at TVSquared?

Regina has high credibility with stakeholders and her team given the journey she took to becoming a data leader. The observations that really resonated with me were some of the leadership responsibilities she discussed, including:

  • Ability to explain value to customers

  • Communication across all stakeholders

  • Expectation management

  • Phased introduction of data capabilities in line with your needs.

Appointing a capable leader is necessary if you really want to drive change. And, especially in the early days, the leader needs to protect their team from organisational “noise” so that can focus on adding value from data.

Regina also spoke eloquently about some of the different data roles an organisation may need (data analysts, data engineers and data scientists) and this is something we will explore further later in the week.
