Session Topic: Why Data Scientists Must Lead Business Forward and The Magical Tools to Do So

Session Description: This session will provide guidance on how Data Scientists can enable the business and leading it forward. We will discuss the persistent gap in the potential of data, its vigorous implementation and how it can be solved. We will also learn the other skills behind the solution Data Scientists bring to the table.

Presenter: Thad Wengert grew up just up the road in Blacksburg, VA. He was educated at Swarthmore College, Cornell University - and on the hills of Honduras as a Peace Corps volunteer. His wife is from Honduras and they are about to graduate their last of 4 kids from South Meck High School. Thad has worked in analytics his whole career, with experience running strategy and digital marketing as well. He has worked from large to small, from retail to manufacturing to financial services including Bank of America, Family Dollar, CompuCom, and SnapAV. He has a data consultancy for small & medium businesses who have more data than they know what to do with. He teaches classes in big data at a Charlotte coding school and a Lego robotics club for kids, so he certainly enjoys speaking and explaining.Today he'll share what he's learned about making data science effective in a company, how data scientists have to lead the way, and the surprising tools you'll need to do so.

Meeting Location: SentryOne Office, 4001B Yancey Rd, Charlotte NC 28217. There is parking right next to the building. Look for the LAB@SentryOne sign.
