Data Leaders and Practitioners

Learn from the experience of those who have succeeded (and failed) with data through sessions on how to lead successful programmes to communicating with data, compelling examples of transformation to future trends and much more.  The Data Summit will equip you with the knowledge and network to support your data journey.


 

CREATED TO BRING LEADERS AND PRACTITIONERS TOGETHER

The Data Summit has been created to bring together data leaders and practitioners across industry, the public sector and academia. We strongly believe bringing these communities together to collaborate is a key ingredient towards data driven innovation.
