Top DfT stats man to speak at analysts’ conference
The head of the DfT’s road safety statistics team is the first confirmed speaker for the second national Data Analysts’ Conference which is being held in Birmingham on 2 March 2017.
The conference is being organised by Road Safety GB in partnership with Road Safety Analysis, under the theme ‘joining the dots’ - how data delivers insight and innovation. The programme will cover a range of topics and include workshop sessions in the afternoon.
Dr Daryl Lloyd, a government analyst since 2004, has headed the DfT’s road safety statistics team for the last three years. His experience spans road freight, vehicle statistics, traffic statistics and housing statistics in his current and previous roles at the DfT, DCLG and the Cabinet Office.
Prior to joining the civil service Dr Lloyd was a research fellow and PhD researcher at the Centre for Advanced Spatial Analysis at UCL.
The conference is being held at the IET in Birmingham on 2 March 2017. The venue has capacity for around 150 delegates and as such early booking is advised. The delegate fee is £125 +VAT with a 40% discount available to Road Safety GB, Academy and MASTonline members. Click here to register to attend.
