    Unlocking a Data Conscious Culture 

    Joe Colangelo, CEO & Founder Bear Analytics, Inc

    As the topic of "big data" grows louder and more widespread in the corporate world, organizations are struggling to understand the difference between the signal and the noise. Today, associations and event producers are collecting more information than ever. Combined with vendor products, data is flowing at a higher level of sophistication, and with increased integrity. The next step for organizations is to understand how to view their data to make decisions and monetize this silent asset.

    This presentation will outline the keys to successfully unlocking a data conscious culture at your organization and the methodology of what the events industry can learn by bringing just a little bit of data strategy to their teams and contractors.

    Learner Objectives:
    • Best practices in data organization and collection
    • Putting your data first: An introduction into building an organizational data strategy
    • Pathways and examples to monetizing your data
