Harnessing public data for powerful insight and effective content

Learn about the key sources of economic, social and public perception data

How to harness public data

There's a huge amount of data in the public domain but finding the right data and analysing it in the right way can be difficult. This session will introduce you to some key sources of economic, social and public perception data and talk through some approaches to using it to help shape your business planning or to create effective content that sits well in context.

Session will cover:

  • Knowing when data is from a reputable source
  • Interpreting stats and knowing what they say
  • Some useful sources and tools for collecting, analysing and visualising data

This event qualifies for 1.25 hours of CPD. A certificate of attendance will be available on request, post-event.
