MBN prides itself with being at the forefront of recruitment services for Data Science, Insight and Analytics and related Technology skills. Key to our success and growth in this important sector has been the development of world class thought leadership and creation of events to allow skilled practitioners and business leaders to hear from leading global professionals and to network with like minded people. Over time, these events have grown in stature and significance and for us, it was only a matter of time before we extended our reach. Having delivered and participated in events in Paris and San Francisco, it was Berlin’s turn next.
Staged at the exceptional ‘Factory’ in Berlin on the 21 April, MBN were out in force to establish an exceptional event. As partners of such luminaries as Google and Twitter, and a residence to some of Berlin’s most exciting startup businesses, the ‘Factory’ was an ideal venue for us to introduce two great speakers to a large community of Data Science practitioners.
Our first speaker, Suresh Pillai of ProSieben took the audience on a journey to discuss the need to put back the ‘Science in Data Science’. Using examples based on prior experience at eBay, Suresh discussed case studies for maximising the value from key skills, tools and approaches in Data Science.
Our second speaker, Dr. Alexander Weiss, Head of Data Science at GetYourGuide, presented his perspective on Data Science, ‘Dreams, Reality, Future.’ Presenting an interesting take on the definition of data science and what this might mean in the future, Alexander provided his unique insight to the requirement for skilled professionals in what has been defined as the ’sexiest job in the 21st Century’!
The evening was brought to a close by MBN’s Chairman, Paul Forrest in a vibrant and busy question and answer session which debated the changing nature of the data science role, the requirement of industry to acknowledge the importance of Data Scientists and future of collaboration between different organisations and participants to allow access to a richer seem of useable data.
Michael Young, CEO of MBN Solutions said “This is another example of MBN extending its reach and facilitating exciting meet ups and events focused around data science, and analytics. We are genuinely pleased and excited to host such a large and diverse audience in this great venue and will be looking to undertake similar events around the world in the future. We’d like to thank the ‘Factory’ for their fantastic hospitality and we look forward to returning for our next Berlin event”.
