Sven Latham

I am a researcher, strategist and advisor with many years' experience working with senior managers at companies large and small, across multiple industries and countries.

My expertise are in software systems, automation & data in the domains of town centre management and government at various levels – although my travels have led me into all sorts of weird & wonderful sectors as well.

I work at the Greater London Authority, managing the London Datastore to help 9 million Londoners benefit from the use of data to help drive positive change.

I am also Vice-Chair of Governors at Bridgemary School, a secondary school in Gosport, Hampshire.

In my spare time, I enjoy travelling, map collecting and studying languages. I’m partial to a good Belgian beer. My ideal holiday is on a canal boat in the Midlands with a delicious evening pub meal to look forward to.

I can speak for hours on data, security, technology, knowledge management and other subjects close to my heart. Thankfully I can also condense it into presentations, talks, articles or a private chat over coffee (black, no sugar).
