Thame Local Legends benefit town with data workshop

21st Century Thame and the Town Council have teamed up with data specialists Noggin, to hold a free workshop for Thame businesses on Thursday 18 January 2018. The event will show how using data more effectively can support growth in the local area.

Thame was a four time prize winner at last year’s Revive & Thrive Local Legends Conference held in Northwich, Cheshire. The four prizes, funded by sponsors of the Local Legends Conference, are all aimed at improving the town centre and building Thame’s profile, so that it continues to develop as a vibrant and flourishing market town. The Local Legends Conference was attended by over 80 representatives of UK towns and cities with opportunities for delegates to share best practice and ideas.

One of the prizes was for a bespoke event to be created by Noggin, and they have produced an informative event that will show attendees, “how to gather and use data to bring genuine benefits to your business”.

The kinds of data analysis previously only enjoyed by big business is increasingly available to the masses. Falling computer costs, rising availability of data and an appreciation of the possibilities it can bring mean the time is right to explore what data can do for you and your business.

Noggin’s goal is to bring data analysis to the smaller business, to help key decision-makers plan and execute their choices with firm evidence and clear cases for success, and this workshop will help you to start to navigate the options, advise on best practise, and bring value and competitive advantage to organisations, as well as to Thame town centre as a whole.

The workshop will also help you to consider the dangers inherent in data gathering, looking at , user rights and protection of privacy and challenging improper use of data.

PLEASE NOTE: spaces are limited on this workshop and priority will be given to Thame town centre businesses.
