The Data Pubcast

By Nick Latocha & Andy Crossley
The Data Pubcast is all about making data accessible to everyone, even in times of a global pandemic. One thing that Andy and Nick both enjoy is really engaging with the Manchester & Leeds communities, pizza and beer in hand. So, they wanted to take the best bits from their chats with the movers and shakers in the world of data and make it something they could share with everyone. They will be chatting with guests about how they built their career, how they navigate the boardroom and stakeholders, what tech and tools they use - and why - and really getting to know them - all over a beer or two
