Market & career updates from across the data, AI and emerging technology sectors.
As I write this, humanity is facing some of its toughest challenges globally in recent memory.
As such, society and the economy are still feeling the shockwaves rippling through their very core.
However, in these tumultuous times, I think it is important to find solace in small wins and to focus on the positives wherever we can.
In spite of a global pandemic and recent humanitarian tragedies, I believe there is much constructive change that can and will occur as a result.
I think now is a time to unify, solidify and evolve into better businesses and better people.
Because where the world goes from here is very much a choice we all get to make, and one I hope we can all make together.
This quarter’s newsletter is focused around the topic of ‘creating efficiencies in digitally transforming world’.
I very much hope you enjoy.

Owing to the impact of coronavirus, we have had to postpone our hugely successful London data networking events.
We remain hopeful that we can restart in September of this year.
We will keep our network posted on developments, and is soon as it is once again safe to get together, we will be in touch about scheduling the next event, bringing together colleagues, partners, advisors and mentor across the London data, AI and emerging tech communities.
