Open data is the idea that some data should be freely available to everyone to use and republish as they wish, without restrictions.

Open Banking is essentially banking by API - allowing any developer to hook right into the banking system and provide services and software on top of traditional banking services. Some say this is the future of banking but either way, the idea is set to disrupt the banking system as we know it.

We're very excited to bring David Beardmore, commercial director of the Open Data Institute (ODI) and one of the world's leading experts on Open Data and Open Banking, to New Zealand for this presentation on Open Data, the work of the ODI, and the future of Open Banking and other Open Data projects.

The future is Open, but what impact will Open Data, Open Banking, and other related areas have on Government and your organisation? This will be a presentation not to be missed.

Includes buffet breakfast from 7:30am. Presentation starts at 8am.


About the Open Data Institute

The ODI was co-founded in 2012 by the inventor of the web Sir Tim Berners-Lee and artificial intelligence expert Sir Nigel Shadbolt to show the value of open data, and to advocate for the innovative use of open data to affect positive change across the globe. The ODI works with companies and governments to build an open, trustworthy data ecosystem.


About The Speaker

David Beardmore leads the commercial, business development and marketing activities for the Open Data Institute.

His 20 years in data-driven insight and marketing have seen him work with many leading brands in multiple sectors and countries, such as Experian, Callcredit and Telefonica. David also ran his own boutique data insight business, Thinkdata, before its acquisition by Bertelsmann.

The Open Data Institute has been instrumental in developing Open Banking in the UK. David regularly speaks on Open Banking at conferences in the UK and internationally, has recently co-authored a report on Open Banking with PwC, and was also interviewed on BBC TV on the day it officially launched in the UK.

The ODI continues to advise on the development and implementation of open banking in other countries including Mexico, Australia, New Zealand, Japan and Canada. In addition to leading on Open Banking for the ODI, David is also helping other industry sectors develop similar open data initiatives including sport & physical activity, utilities and pharmaceuticals.

Originally a classically trained musician, David has a Master's from Cambridge University and an MBA in Marketing. Ever the optimist, he continues to hold a season ticket at Nottingham Forest Football Club.
