A festive
fireside splat

What is the Data Leadership Series?

Each month, with the help of data experts on the panel, we will guide you and your teams through a relevant data leadership topic.

What is this event about?

Join Ortecha Managing Partner, Pete Youngs, and 3 seasoned guests as we round up the major events in the world of data in 2023 and look ahead to 2024.


We’ll share our reflections on the ever-growing data landscape and look back on some of the challenges and highlights from the past year, and indulge our curiosity as we make some predictions for the next 12 months. And of course we’ll be getting festive, with some buzzword bingo and live Q&A. Pete may even wear his Christmas jumper…
