Jamie Hepburn MSP and minister for higher education and further education, youth employment and training will also be in attendance.

Brian Hills, Interim CEO of The Data Lab, said: “While Data Talent moved to a virtual format in recent years, we know from feedback that those attending prefer the in-person event format for networking.

“Data Talent isn’t just for those looking to join the data science and AI workforce now.

“It’s for anyone looking to learn more about the myriad of career paths available that relate to these areas.

“In addition to networking and keynotes, there will be a range of panel discussions as well as interactive workshops covering a range of skills including:

“CV building, techniques for handling technical interviews, the art of storytelling through data visualization, navigating job roles in the field, and the continuing demand for, and opportunities available in, data engineering. 

“There will also be the opportunity to upgrade your LinkedIn profile with a professional photographer providing headshots.

“We welcome everyone even considering a career relating to data science to attend.”
