Trust Your Gut or Trust the Facts?
Workshop (Sacramento)


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 and the former Director of Innovation and Performance for the City of Jackson, Mississippi to learn simple ways to cut through the noise on issues with both internal and external stakeholders.  The sessions is not designed for “techies”, but for those who are curious about leveraging data to move discussions from the realm of opinion to that of facts.  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 Justin Bruce, former Director of Innovation and Performance for the City of Jackson, Mississippi. He currently serves as a Client Success Manager for Tyler Technologies helping state and local governments drive innovation around transparency, performance management, and process improvement.
