Communicate Success to Your Community & Customers Using Data
Followed by a Luncheon & Presentation on Great ShakeOut Earthquake Drills


Open data is critical to build the public’s trust and has the ability to increase citizen participation in government, create opportunities and inform decision making in the public sector. But, it’s just the tip of the iceberg.

Join CAPIO for a free half-day workshop on how to leverage your agency’s data to improve relations with the public, your agency’s internal customers and to improve program performance.  Don’t worry – you will not need to have any expertise in databases or know any software; this collaborative session is designed for public-sector communications professionals and will cover:

  • Open data – what is it, why is it important, what to do with it
  • Leveraging your agency’s data to improve performance and tell a story
  • Interactive discussion – using your data to solve issues across agency lines
  • Answer questions and provide high-level guidance and suggestions.

The workshop will be presented by Oliver Wise, former Director of the City of New Orleans’ Office of Performance and Accountability and a leader in helping the public sector leverage their data to improve transparency, engagement and performance.
