Being a data leader can sometimes feel a little isolating within an organisation. In those times you need a strong network of people to offer other perspectives and ideas - this is what the Driven by Data | The Roundtable provides. It's a super friendly, inclusive event, full of people who are passionate about the impact data can have and who are very giving of their time and experience.
