Regina Lally has been bringing people and data together for over 14 years in both public sector and commercial organisations. She is the Co-Founder of Databasix, an award-winning, people-focused data consultancy. She maintains that the key to engaging stakeholders in data projects is to provide consistent messages, open communication and early feedback.
Prior to establishing Databasix in 2013, Regina worked across a variety of data projects during her NHS career, including designing and implementing the Systemic Anti-Cancer Therapy Dataset for England. She has since enjoyed working on a variety of projects which draw on her skill set across different sectors; a selection have linked closely to her healthcare and information governance expertise. Other projects have focused on her expertise in engaging people in collecting, understanding or using high quality data to the benefit of their business and decision-making: the UKSA-funded Drought and Flood Mitigation Service (DFMS) Project, lead by the Rhea Group, draws on these skills to engage a range of Ugandan stakeholders in the development of an integrated system providing improved access to services, models and data products for drought and flood information using satellite technology. Regina is keen to ensure that Databasix continue to be involved in projects that have a positive impact, and can see the potential that space technology has for improving lives of people around the world.
Regina is a keen runner, packs her trainers on field trips to Uganda and particularly enjoyed her runs in Moroto.
