This conference program aims to give senior industry professionals access to new ideas, solutions and innovations to help take their departments and companies forward. The agenda is pitched at a high level and we endeavour to present new case studies and new thinkers on the program each year.

Keynote and seminar sessions give a high-level view of the  industry, offering predictions and insights to help delegates form their future strategies. The interactive workshops and discussion groups complement the larger sessions by drilling down into specific issues, allowing delegates to share their collective experiences and to learn how their peers are dealing with similar situations.

  • The Business Power of Open Data

    Joel Gurin, Senior Advisor at The GovLab

    Joel Gurin is the author of Open Data Now (McGraw-Hill, January 2014), the first major book on the new information revolution that is transforming business, government, and society. He brings a unique background to his work on Open Data. Gurin began his career as an award-winning science journalist, became a nationally recognized leader in consumer information and website development, led a White House task force on consumer data and information, and now helps lead a foundation-supported program on Open Data and Open Government.

    Gurin began his career as a science journalist immediately after graduating from Harvard University in biochemical sciences. He has won the top science-writing awards from the American Association for the Advancement of Science and the National Association of Science Writers. He is the coauthor with William Bennett of The Dieter’s Dilemma, which introduced the setpoint theory of weight control, and edited the book Mind/Body Medicine with Daniel Goleman, author of Emotional Intelligence. Gurin was also the editor and co-founder of American Health magazine, the first health publication to win the National Magazine Award for General Excellence.

    Gurin had a long and successful career at Consumers Union, the nonprofit publisher of Consumer Reports, where he began as science editor, soon became editorial director, and then served as executive vice president for almost a decade. As EVP of Consumers Union, Gurin launched and grew Consumer Reports’ website, ConsumerReports.org. Under his leadership it became the world’s largest information-based paid-subscription site: It now has more than three million active paid subscribers.
