The UK is facing a multitude of social and economic challenges from Brexit to the desire to create a fairer society by efficient and affordable public services. Understanding and evaluating the impact of change will be critical to those needing to make informed decisions regarding the UK economy, society and people’s quality of life.

This event will explore and recognise examples of where the use of research data is delivering a public benefit and explore opportunities to encourage innovative use of these data.

The programme includes guest speakers:

Ben Page, Ipsos MORI

Ben Page, Chief Executive of Ipsos MORI. He joined MORI in 1987 after graduating from Oxford University in 1986, and was one of the leaders of its first management buyout in 2000. A frequent writer and speaker on trends, leadership and performance management, he has directed thousands of surveys examining consumer trends and citizen behaviour.

Ben will examine social and political trends in 2018, including why it is becoming harder to govern Britain

He will look at The Perils of Perception – why so many of us are so wrong about so many things and the challenges facing survey research in an age of the crisis of trust.

Robert Cuffe, BBC

Robert Cuffe, Head of Statistics at BBC News. Before joining the BBC, he was head of statistics at ViiV Healthcare, a pharmaceutical company, and chair of the UK pharmaceutical statistics industry body, PSI. He sits on the Professional Affairs Committee of the Royal Statistical Society and worked with the Science Media Centre to found a statistical briefing service on health stories for the lay media.

Robert aims to give delegates a better feel for how the BBC processes outputs in order to improve communication between producers and (one set) of consumers of statistics.



There will also be a panel session chaired by Sarah Henry, Director of Methods and Research at the Office for National Statistics (ONS) alongside Stephen Meredith, Head of Higher Education Analysis at the Department for Education (DfE), Tom Knight, Chief Statistician at the Department for International Trade and Liz McKeown, Director of Public Policy Analysis at ONS. This will aim to address issues facing the research community in Trade and Investment, Health and Education. These themes will then carry into breakout sessions which will aim to explore the issues and opportunities raised. We will endeavour to get everyone on the breakout session of their choice but places will be allocated on a first come first serve basis.
