Event description

Description

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.

Theo Blackwell MBE is London's first ever Chief Digital Officer.

A big role, indeed – but what's it actually like to be dropped into a role which carries with it so many city-wide expectations? What challenges did he face, and why did London need him in the first place?

Theo will talk about opportunities, challenges and where he came from. He'll also have some handy advice for new CDO's taking on big new responsibilities.

About the speaker

Appointed in 2017, Theo leads on London-wide digital transformation, data and smart city initiatives at City Hall.
