I recently attended my first Analytics Symposium, and I was delighted with the experience. Why? Attendees were bright, enthusiastic, and seasoned analytics practitioners. Speakers were world-class thought leaders in their respective domains. And our hosts – IIA and VMware – were gracious, thoughtful, and well-organized. One of my favorite aspects of Symposium was the degree of collegiality attendees universally displayed. It was clear all were there to forge bonds – to unite in common purposes – and work together towards those purposes efficiently and effectively. Conversations quickly converged to mutual rapport and benefit. I left the conference with a host of new connections I look forward to working with more closely in the future. As a strong advocate of collaboration, I couldn’t be more excited at the prospect.
