Data geeks and decision-making talk

OCSI’s own Tom Smith spoke last week at the Open Data Institute #ODIFridays lunch-time lecture.

Looking at how to ‘bridge the gap between information and influencers’, Tom reflected on real life examples of how OCSI and other organisations make this connection, and the strong impacts of communicating data effectively on public and community sector work.
