Learn to use data

It’s only been with the invention of the Internet that data has been able to be shared in a way lots of others can use, so it’s important to remember – hardly anyone is used to using data!

We have a section with free resources on how you can [use data better]. Some of the content is practical and specific, and some of it talks about the wider use of data and how thinking about it through the establishment of [Seek Culture] could be valuable.

We also provide consulting services for organisations wanting to engage us for tailored help on using data better and implementing [Seek Culture].

  • How much of their data is currently published and usable

This will enable us to know:
