Waking up to data analytics – join our breakfast meeting

We are hosting a free to attend event on the morning of April 28th starting at 07:30 – come join us.

Data analytics has been a hot topic for a few years now and we speak to companies every day who find the sheer volume of information overwhelming.

We want to help local businesses and organisations release the potential hidden inside their data. We’re teaming up with professional consultants Grant Thornton to invite you to an informal breakfast meeting aimed at helping local businesses get started with data analytics. We will be discussing the best ways to start a data project, what pitfalls to avoid and make sense of some of the industry jargon.

The event is free to attend and breakfast is provided. See the full agenda below.
