I had the privilege of speaking twice at the Data Governance & Information Quality Conference (DGIQ) in Washington D.C., which took place from December 4-8, 2023. During this edition of DGIQ East, I conducted a half-day tutorial titled “Running and Designing Your Own Perfect Data Governance Workshops” and a full-day seminar on “Data Governance Strategy and Design Sprints“. Both sessions were well-received and I was delighted to share my knowledge and experience with the audience.

Dataversity is hosting the Data Governance and Information Quality (DGIQ) event.
