For those of us who follow social media on topics like analytics and data science, it seems like every day brings a newly popular data visualization. When well designed, these graphics are engaging and catch the eye, amongst so much text or photos of cats. But, I’m hearing that such stand-out is even more important
At MBN, we’re more than just another recruitment business. We are a full service People Solutions business specialising in finding and securing the very best staff and talent for our clients. This requires us to have an in depth knowledge and appreciation for the sectors and skill areas in which we operate.
Our thought leadership can be seen elsewhere on this website, but it is the compilation of such commentary that allows us to share our unique insight. After running a series of such articles with a tremendous social media response, we decided in 2012 to launch a series of regular events where we would invite industry leaders, clients and interested parties to share an evening of networking, presentations and general insight into the areas of our subject matter expertise, namely, Technology, Blockchain, Data Science & Analytics and Digital Initiatives.
