Analytics is the use of data and analysis to improve the performance of an organization.  In other words, it's the search for a free lunch.  Ergo, we combine compelling speakers with a free lunch. 

The format: Five speakers, five minutes each, 3 bullets max (If you can't kill it with three bullets, you can't kill it).

Given how well our panel worked at the last event, we're going to take another risk and, through the magic of video conferencing, we'll present a short panel on election forecasting and poll prediction at the beginning, and end with a tools of the trade talk.

Tools of The Trade

We hope to see you there.
