- Nicola Blackwood, former health minister and former Chair of the Science and Technology Select Committee
- Helen Margetts, Director of the Oxford Internet Institute and Programme Director for Public Policy at the Alan Turing Institute

The event will be chaired by Gavin Freeguard, Programme Director and Head of Data and Transparency at the Institute for Government.
