Alteryx Alumni (Retired)

In case you are unfamiliar with him, Ben Goldacre is an award-winning writer, broadcaster, doctor, academic, and campaigner who specializes in unpacking scientific claims made by ‘scaremongering journalists, government reports, pharmaceutical corporations, PR companies, and quacks.’ He weaves satire and humor into his books and presentations, making him not only an informative speaker, but a fun one as well. He is altering the approach to medical and scientific research and is consistent with the conference theme, “Alter.Everything,” which challenges attendees to step out of their comfort zones to alter history, trends, their careers, and their analytics.

 

You may have seen his columns in The Guardian or one of his best-selling books, Bad Science and, in 2018, he was also awarded an MBE “For Services to Evidence in Policy.”

 

We invited him to speak at Inspire 2018 because we feel he truly understands data – and the power of data to tell stories and inform important decisions – in a way few people do. As we know, data and deriving insights from data is complicated and, if put in the hands of the wrong people, can be sorely manipulated.

 

Register now to join us at Inspire Europe 2018 in London. Not only will you get the chance to hear from Ben Goldacre on how he spent his career delving into shoddy data claims and altering the way consumers in the world interpret data and claims, but also hear from other icons and leaders in the world of analytics on the benefits self-service data analytics brings to their organizations.

 

See you in London!
