One of the more difficult tasks for people who build analytics models is communicating with others about their work and why they should care. For this Meetup, we're going to talk about "Selling Data Science Projects and Results to People with Budgets", whether those people are executives in your company, or granting agencies, or higher-ups in government. A panel of data science experts with a range of experiences will start off with 5-minute presentations about an attempt to sell a data science project that went either particularly well or particularly poorly. We'll then transition to a panel and Q&A discussion.
Our panel will be:
Brett Berlin - Senior S&T Strategy Advisor, Dynamics Research Corp.
Brian Johnson - Co-founder, Donor Precision
Doug Samuelson - President, InfoLogix
Nick Tabbal - SVP, Resonate Networks
Russ Vane - Managing Consultant, IBM
