The Data Saturday Oslo Event

I was really excited to go and speak at Data Saturday in Oslo on #35 on 2 September 2023 on the Business Benefits for good governance.  Oslo is an amazing city and the Saturday venue was in the heart of the Campus Fjerdingen | H√łyskolen Kristiania, Chr. Krohgs gate 32, 0186 Oslo

It was great to see all the room with Norse names

I spoke after lunch at 14:15 in Vanaheim, one of the nine worlds that are situated around the world tree Yggdrasil.

My session slides are on Github

The event was packed full of amazing session content with the day being a true community event.  I would recommend the event to anyone in the future and hope i have to opportunity to speak there again in the future.
