Simon Buillmore will discuss his own experience of imposter syndrome, and will share how data literacy can help by giving you a starting point that relates more to your own context and needs.

ODI Fridays are free lunchtime lectures for everyone. You bring your lunch, we provide tea and coffee, an interesting talk, and enough time to get back to your desk.

Imposter syndrome is a big issue in the data sector, particularly in leaders. Everyone thinks they should know more about it.

When leaders don’t confront impostor syndrome or seek help to develop their data skills it can cause blockers. They start working on assumptions, bring in expensive consultants etc.

Simon Bullmore will discuss his own experience of imposter syndrome, and will share how data literacy can help by giving you a starting point that relates more to your own context and needs.
