Simon joined Kubrick in April 2018 to design the Data Management program. He utilises his extensive experience to curate training courses which are highly technical, aligned with business needs, and instil best practice whilst recognising the bigger picture. He is an inspiring educator who relishes the opportunity to train our smart, ambitious consultants and prepare them for the workforce.
Prior to joining Kubrick, Simon was involved in a plethora of ground-breaking regulatory initiatives and implementations within the financial sector which shaped our understanding of data management and governance. His advisory work includes Basel II, Solvency II, MiFID II, and GDPR. He has extensive experience in the financial services industry, implementing and managing data governance initiatives with the FCA, Schroders, and HSBC.
Simon has a keen interest in the future of data management and governance technologies as the capabilities of tools and platforms continue to evolve. He underpins his training with the core principles of governance, ensuring our consultants can harness theoretical understanding in order to enhance their comprehension of tools and their purpose with longevity. Simon is an advocate for personal and professional development and runs mindfulness sessions to support the wellbeing of consultants and our HQ staff alike.
Collaborate with one another, compete with yourself. This advice is just as relevant to my consultants-in-training as to the anyone in the wider workplace.Simon Duncan, Head of Data Management
