Open data might be fuel, but fuel on its own doesn’t get you anywhere. To improve public services you need to translate the raw data material into whatever helps people solve their problems. So, how do we bridge the gap from open data geeks to decision-makers?

Tom Smith, founder and director of OCSI, helps public sector organisations use information effectively for policy and decision-making. He will bring in real world lessons of using open data to improve decisions, and more.

Bring along your lunch to the free ODI Friday lecture and join us over your lunch break for an interesting talk and discussion on the gap between information and influencers.
