Business Analytics Forum 3 (#BAF)

Date: 4 Jul 2019

Time: 1:00 PM - 7:00 PM

What is the forum all about?

With the increasing prevalence of data, constantly improving technology and the need for industry sectors to make better use of the insights available; we have established this forum, as an great opportunity for like-minded people to get together to share best practice, make great contacts, and get hands on.

The forums will take place three times a year, with guest speakers from a range of Analytics solution providers, alongside presentations from forum members themselves.

Who should attend?

The forum works best when we get a range of complementary skills and viewpoints! Directors and Senior Managers from:

  • Finance (Finance Directors, FP&A, Management Accountants, Analysts)
  • IT (Business Analysts, BI Managers, BI Developers, Data Science)
  • Operations (Business Leaders, Department Heads, Transformation Leaders).
