Better use of data is key to more effective government. Across government, teams are doing fascinating work with data. But those projects don’t get the attention they deserve. Data Bites aims to change that. 

This event was the 49th in our series, where the speakers presented their work in an exciting, quickfire format. 

Each speaker had eight minutes, followed by eight minutes of questions from the audience.

This month's speakers were:

  • Viv Adams, Principal Policy Adviser in the Central Government team at the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO), on 'the Data Sharing Code, and sharing data for safeguarding children and young people'
  • Dominic Hale, Head of Strategy for the Integrated Data Programme at the Office for National Statistics, on 'the Integrated Data Service'
  • Peter Horne, Principal at Nous Group, on 'leveraging data to drive efficiencies and improvements in operations'.
  • Steve Whitla, Founder and Director of Visual Meaning, on 'Creating Shared Meaning at National Highways'

The event was chaired by Gavin Freeguard, Associate at the Institute for Government.
