Speaking to a crowd of about 2,500 young people for our organization were our Managing Partner David Brown (MVP), Lead Analyst and Trainer Adewale Yusuf (MVP) and Oloruntoba Faskain.


David Brown speaks on Data Culture and Teams.

Delivering his session on Data Culture and Teams, David spoke to the need of building a Data Culture by allowing teams have access to democratized data and making them open sourced to all members of the organization for effective data-driven work.

"A common problem that we have noticed working with organizations over the years is that data is locked up in silos and not centralized".
