Are you challenged with creating actionable marketing performance reports? You know that you can uncover meaningful insights in all of your digital traffic data if you could find a way to see the data in a different light. This sounds like a Data Science challenge, but you aren't a Data Scientist. The Good news is that you don't have to quit your job, go into severe debt, or go back to school to learn Data Science, so you can solve this challenge. If you'd love to start doing some data science? Or, are you a data scientist, but you can't quite figure out how and where to put your skills to use with your marketing counterparts, then this presentation is a must-see event.

In this presentation, Tim Wilson will describe why and how he started doing more data science while remaining an analyst at his core, as well as what he has learned along the way. But, the real fun begins with the examples he will show specific use cases with real data, and the broader implications and applications that those examples inspire. And, if you have access to a Google Analytics account, you can try any of the examples out on your data: through a web interface without writing any code, or, if you'd like to dig into the underlying R, then you can do that, too!
