Following Tony’s critique of mega-conference events, I was fortunate enough this week to join a client, at one of their internal events.
It was a ‘Data & Analytics Seminar’, focused on increasing knowledge and sharing best practice. Attendees came mainly from Analytics or BI roles, but included a range of experience and technical verses business focus.
There was so much to praise about this event. Held in a modern, innovation centre (think Google-esque environment), it was relaxed, interactive and included a good mixed diet. On the agenda were internal & external speakers, as well as content that ranged from very technical to strategic or people-focussed.
