Queensland CLCs free event
Communicating your "why" and your purpose is important, particularly if you are #diymarketing
Queensland Community Legal Centres are doing a free CLE on Wednesday 5 August around using your business reports to share your "performance story" with your stakeholders, which in your case is probably your clients and potential future clients.
You can find out more information, or register for that here. If you are looking at this after the date has passed, I have in the past contacted community legal centres after the event and asked for a copy of their webinars.
Do algorithms need legislation?
Dubbed as the "first in the world", the Algorithm Charter for Aotearoa New Zealand, according to Minister for Statistics James Shaw, will improve data transparency and accountability, especially when algorithms are being used to process and interpret large amounts of data.
