Insight Champion

The race towards insight

David Owens

As a former Lecturer in Quantitative Methods and Information Systems at UCD, David has the very unique skill of being able to present highly technical and complex ideas in a very engaging and entertaining way. Following his academic career, David launched his first technology start-up at the age of 23 and over 10 years later has amassed a wealth of commercial knowledge working with SMEs both in Ireland and abroad. His company Let’s Operate has strived to be at the cutting edge of managed IT and was the first Irish company to introduce a cloud desktop solution for the small business market.

Personal service and and intimate customer knowledge have always been the preserve of smaller business. Big Data and analytics has enabled larger companies to gain real customer insights, stealing that competitive advantage. SME's need to up their game, ask great questions, delve deeper if they are to successfully scale and grow.

David’s excellent communication skills allow him to engage with business owners, bridging the gap between complex technology, academic thought leadership and real world application. David’s own entrepreneurial spirit has seen him involved in many start-ups across a diverse set of industries. David is passionate about helping businesses solve interesting problems, by asking great questions and discovering hidden truth. “Being open, thinking positive, acting ethically & doing the work.” is David’s personal creed.
