As we emerge into the age of the web of data, data skills aren’t just a ‘nice to have’, but are necessary for any modern organisation. But being data skilled isn’t simply about being a spreadsheet wizard. It’s about understanding how and when data is useful, and using a mixture of strategic and practical skills to realise your vision.
To celebrate the ODI’s fourth annual summit, we’re hosting a day of short, interactive workshops beforehand to boost your confidence in using and talking about data.
The day will be a smorgasbord of technical and strategic training, as well as more advanced sessions for data pioneers and exploratory data games for beginners, themed around the ODI’s Open Data Skills Framework.
Book Onto The ODI Summit

We’re entering a new era. It’s been 27 years since the World Wide Web was invented, and there are now more devices in the world than people. With this changing landscape, we’re having to get smarter and more innovative in how we connect with each other, our communities and our cities around the world.
If data infrastructure is as important to our infrastructure as roads, then the Open Data Institute is helping to lay the concrete. Join us on 1 November to hear inspiring stories from around the world on how people are innovating with the web of data, with presentations from diverse innovators – from startups to high-profile speakers such as Sir Tim Berners-Lee (creator of the World Wide Web), Sir Nigel Shadbolt (AI expert) and Martha Lane Fox (Lastminute.com founder).
We’ll be joined by governments, charities, banks, supermarkets and many more who are empowered by the web of data to become more open, more efficient and better connected.
