We help you develop confidence and competence in the growing data and smart cities ecosystem.

Following a successful year delivering data training on behalf of the Scottish Government, we are now offering new courses to everyone. Our training packages are developed based on our years of experience supporting cities and public and private organisations in their data and smart cities journeys.

Delivery and facilitation of this course are beyond excellent. Pitch, content and deliverables were spot on. Key messages were delivered clearly and knowledge share is invaluable.

Smart Data Lab

We work with you to create a tailored workshop and mentoring program to help you and your organisation prepare for the opportunities in the data-led economy.


We define and identify your organisation’s needs and assets, including organisational directives. We build roles and responsibilities across your team, explore technological challenges, look at the availability of data and examine your experiences utilising data to further your advocacy and development work.


Mentoring with a long-term view, we ensure that open data knowledge and lessons learned are transformed into strategic and business goals. We help you incorporate the operational processes that have a real impact not only on the organisation but also on your wider stakeholders.


When we measure success, we focus on higher-order results like changes in practices, internal and external processes and shifts in organisation and personnel attitudes for the creation of concrete outcomes that benefit citizens and communities.


We focus on your organisation's collective awareness of the value and benefits open data offers. We help teams realise their strategic goals and visions to increase their efficiency, effectiveness and sustainability via open data.

Data training for Scottish Government

We have had a fantastic year touring Scotland and delivering open data training pilot workshops on behalf of the Scottish Government to a total of 317 public sector delegates from 72 public bodies. Here we review what delegates said about our training and how that feedback shaped our new training programme.
