Business Intelligence

One of the by-products of the fight against Covid-19 is a new respect for and reliance on experts.  Their evidence-based decision making has been at the forefront of the fight in countries around the globe.

Business and individuals alike, can learn much by ensuring that decisions are evidence-based and are not flawed due to our own natural behavioural biases and flaws.

I have a love of numbers. Added to that a passion for charts, graphs and all sorts of methods of visualising data especially maps.  My experience with data, business analysis and business intelligence has a number of strands.
