What we're about

This is a socialising, networking, and skill-sharing community for anyone working with data in Brighton and the surrounding area. The goal of the meetup is to bring locals together, share experiences and war stories, increase awareness of local opportunities and to give or receive support with data related challenges.
We meet bimonthly, on the last Wednesday of the odd numbered months. Where we offer a mix of presentations and informal chats. Our meeting are held online for the foreseeable future.
A selection of recordings from previous meetings can be found on our youtube channel.
In addition to organising bimonthly meetings, we manage a #slack workspace to continue the conversation. Whether you can make it to our meetings or not, we encourage all group members to join us on #slack. Email skarinn@yahoo.com to ask for an invite.

The Brighton Data Forum is a proud participant in the Silicon Brighton tech community. Silicon Brighton is a community-led initiative to support digital growth in the region. We work hand-in-hand with the local tech community to provide individuals with free opportunities for networking, training, up-skilling and development; helping people to take their careers and businesses forward.

The Brighton Data Forum is proud to present an evening with Morgan McCarthy, Head of Data and Analytics at Southern Water, speaking on the topic of "Data governance and AI".

Morgan is a veteran leader in the data world, having built a career in consultancies before ascending to a leadership position at Southern Water three years ago. Morgan will share his experiences there, successes and challenges and what they have taught him about the importance of data governance and its role in artificial intelligence.

We are in for a treat as Morgan is an knowledgable and talented speaker. Additionally, Morgan is the Brighton Data Forum's godfather. He launched and nurtured this meetup back in 2018 and his consulting company, CDO partners, sponsored it through the early years.

This hybrid event will be hosted at our familiar location in the Brandwatch offices on Church street, North Laine, and broadcast live on zoom. Please only sign up on meetup.com if you intend on attending up in person, so we can get an accurate headcount for drinks/refreshments.
