As a leading global provider of people solutions, MBN is only as good as our people. Every day, we play a vital role in helping client organisations to identify the very best people to help them to create value and grow with confidence.  One characteristic in common with all of the organisations we work with is that they have very high expectations of our consultants. As part of an ongoing growth strategy, we respond by recruiting truly outstanding people

All new members have shown outstanding efforts and determination and surpassed all expectations. We look forward to their continuous contribution throughout 2017.

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.

MBN hosted a number of events - all different in scale and audience.

Using Big Data Analytics to Transform Customer Experience

Although data and analytics have great value to organisations when applied to many business situations and operational problems, it’s clear that in many transformation projects, the customer experience is the actual driver and the real catalyst for successful outcomes.

Knowing the importance of the customer experience overall and the increasing focus on that experience for businesses is often seen as a challenging area to tackle. Getting it right whilst achieving alignment of insight and analytics delivers exceptional results for transformational businesses.  The event focused on success stories and the key attributes harnessed to achieve desired outcomes, together with debate relating to common pitfalls and areas to avoid.
