– Event Organizer
Thank you for the amazing Keynote presentation. You have a brilliant vision for how society and business can innovate and mature data creation, ownership and use. Your perspective on dystopian and utopian analysis in deploying new solutions or technology was eye opening and provides clues to help resolve opposing views that have previously been elusive. I connected with your messages and your call for us to own what we put into code and how we use data! Well done!
