For me, doing a TED talk was more than just going outside my comfort zone. It was pushing myself beyond what I thought was possible. So proud to have achieved this. The Tedx Folkestone team were really supportive throughout the whole process and I couldn’t have done it without you guys, many thanks to you all.

As I’m a bit of a gadget freak, questioning how we use technology and data in our everyday lives was a difficult thing to do. It forced me to look beyond our technological conveniences and peer into the future and ask the question, why are we headed with all of this? I truly believe that data is the key to making our lives better however left unchecked, our collection and use of data could get out of control.

If you’d like to be entertained with some ingenious stories of how we’ve used data to connect us across the globe, improve our health and other uses, have a look at my video below called “What’s the story behind your data”, you won’t be disappointed.
