About this event

"Changes call for innovation, and innovation leads to progress."

With Scotland's ability to punch well above its weight class in the innovation space, from the telephone to the television, its strength in data science could equally be a source of value and influence.

As uncertainty clouds our global outlook, we find ourselves looking further inwards for leadership, social good and how best we can nurture our thriving data science community. Who better to delve into Scotland's boundless data science potential than Gillian Docherty OBE.
