Watch this on-demand webinar as Letitia Birnoschi, Head of Data and Digitalisation at Sika UK shares how to encourage a data-driven mindset among business stakeholders.

In the age of automation and data-driven decision making, manufacturing businesses appear to be on a fast track to innovation.

However, companies like Sika face an additional challenge — they operate in the construction sector, which is one of the least advanced when it comes to digitalisation.

This presentation covers lessons learnt whilst working as Head of Data and Digitalisation at Sika UK, from how to encourage a data-driven mindset among business stakeholders, to tools that were found useful along the way.

It’s followed by a panel discussion including Peak data scientists.


You will learn:

  • The challenges faced by a construction company in the face of digitalisation  
  • The opportunity to speak to a panel of supply chain data experts
