About the Lights on Data Show

Join us on the Lights On Data Show where we cover all kinds of data topics. Data governance, data management, data science, data quality, data strategy, data architecture, data analytics, machine learning, artificial intelligence, data security and privacy, master data management, just to name a few of the topics.

This is a LIVE show that is informative, but fun; where the audience is engaged and empowered to learn; where knowledge is shared and networks are expanded.

Each show features at least one guest that is an expert in their field so you can expect a lot of value and practical takeaways from any data topic that is or will be addressed. 

To our future guests

The show is streamed LIVE on LinkedIn and YouTube so you can expect engagement and questions coming in from the audience.

The data topic and content will be something that the audience can learn from, but if you also have a service, a product, a brand that is worth sharing, we will be more than happy to create that exposure. We know it will be mutually beneficial for the audience and yourself and/or the company that you represent.

To our audience

Even though you can always watch the recorded versions of the show, we encourage you to join us LIVE. One of the benefits of doing so is that you can engage with the topic, the guest, and fellow attendees through your comments and questions.

We try to address as many questions from the audience as the time allows us. Remember, it's a show that is meant to provide you with valuable content so don't be shy and ask those questions.

The Lights On Data Show community is truly supportive, generous, and welcoming. 

Come and see for yourself!
