Presentation:
Data Speaks Up!.  Presented by Greg Nichelsen, Executive Manager, Customer Analytics, Suncorp Group and Founder Data Speaks Up!

 

Abstract:
Data Speaks Up! exists to start a data revolution. To start a movement to help our fellow analytics people and data scientists be seen and heard in their companies. We are here to make sure Data Speaks Up!

“In a long data and analytics career I have seen so many cases of analytics just not hitting the mark despite the insight teams having some great skills and exceptional analysis to share, of functions outsourced despite internal teams having the executional capacity and capability, of teams in analysis paralysis being asked to check their work or delve deeper over and over or of a lack of insights being used as an excuse for failed programs and marketing despite a plethora of facts and insights being available.

I hear lots of talk in organisations about the need for more analytics and this often manifests itself in investments in technology and technical training. Most organisations fail to focus on the softer skills that make data professionals successful in the world of organisational prioritisation, change management, stakeholder engagement and company politics.”

In this insightful presentation, Greg will discuss the skills that will allow you to stand out in your organisation, to build stakeholder relationships that stand the test of time,  to have a strategic voice, to tell powerful and compelling data stories and to genuinely make a difference.

Greg Nichelsen
Executive Manager, Customer Analytics, Suncorp Group and Founder Data Speaks Up!

Greg has spent more than 20 years in data specialty roles from architecture and data warehousing through deep analytics to reporting and visualisation. He acknowledges he’s been lucky in his careers but he really wants to form a global data movement - to start a change that addresses an imbalance in skills and power.
Greg feels so strongly about helping his fellow data geeks that along with colleague Kevin Morrell (and alongside his corporate role) started Data Speaks Up! to give free online tips based around a simple empowering framework to help improve the impact we have in organisations. He hopes to get a global movement of data people who are more successful than ever in their roles, that don’t get overlooked or ignored.
