OpenDataManchester and PyDataMCR presents:

Local Government has as much to gain from data as large companies do. We've heard from lots of local companies and researchers about how they use data. Come find out from some governmental types what problems they face, and how they look to address them.

The Speakers:
* Paul Holme - Strategic Lead (Intelligence and Data Science) at Manchester City Council - "A day in the life of a Local Government Intelligence Team - the priorities, the data, the challenges and the opportunities" - @holme_paul

* Lucy Hudson - Lead Officer Freight and Logistics - ‘The bass player in the band. How the North delivers the goods’ - @yculj

* Zoe Walker - Senior Probation Officer in National Probation Service North West Division. “The Effective Proposal Framework Tool: Helping probation staff make better decisions” - @NPSEPF

* 18:00 pre-event networking, pizza and drinks
* 18:30 talk 1

July 30th 18:00-20:00
