The great thing about analytics is that it tells you what is wrong. The hard thing is that you have to do the work to make things better. What if you could put that data to work automating some of those fixes? This would free you up to do more of the high value work, right?

This workshop will help you discover new ways of using analytics to power conversion rate optimization, improve customer experience, and win more business.

Full Day Workshop 8:30 am - 3:30 pm

There is nothing better than a head-to-head A/B test to drive marketing decisions.  A/B tests lead to simple analytics that almost everyone in the organization can understand and act on. If you’ve run at least a few A/B tests, this workshop will show you how to use more powerful analytics tools like predictive modeling to get more insight out of your tests. After reviewing the basics of A/B test analysis, we will talk about testing strategies you can use when you have a very large or very small sample sizes. We will cover a pile of advanced techniques including heterogeneous treatment effects, uplift modeling, causal forests, blocking, matching, and stratification. If this sound like a bunch of jargon to you right now, that’s okay. I will demystify the jargon and help you understand when and why you might use these techniques in analyzing your A/B tests. We will also cover Bayesian approaches to A/B testing including test & roll and multi-armed bandits.

From market research to direct mail metrics to web analytics to Big Data, the job of “marketing” has changed dramatically over time. We have arrived at a fundamental shift in marketing that is as impactful as the advent of the Internet: Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning.

This workshop introduces marketing professionals of all ranks to the theory, the language and the practical application of these disruptive technologies.

This workshop will not teach you how to be a data scientist.

It will teach you enough about the language and implications to speak cogently with your colleagues, and determine where to apply this innovative technology first. You will also get a firm grasp on how these new tools will change your job and what you can do to remain relevant in tomorrow’s marketing department.

Workshop - Thursday, June 20th, 2019

9:00 am
Full Day Workshop 9:00 am - 4:30 pm

“No matter how big your data, you must master storytelling and visualization to influence business decisions.”

Visualization is the new communication medium – not the activity of making charts! Learn how to apply the foundations of visual language, evoke what people really want from their data, and unleash your creativity.

Develop leadership in the processes, people, and culture around visualization. To make big data successful requires you to build new skills in visualization, turn data into stories, and change how teams work together.

This workshop is more than a day of amazing ideas. The exercises and team-based challenges build your confidence with practical ways to immediately improve your visualizations and reveal the “a-ha” insights.
