Welcome to my page!
As the Co-founder of BI Brainz and our popular Data Storytelling Framework, I’ve been blessed to train 10,000+ data professionals in the last 10 years and I don’t plan to stop anytime soon. I love discussing the use and impact of data storytelling on our Analytics on Fire Podcast, where I interview our rockstar students, fellow thought leaders and some of our executive sponsors.
My true passion is teaching the verbal, written and visual art of data storytelling to drive action. I’ve consulted with and trained teams for companies like Shell, FedEx, Nestle, Qatargas, Ericsson, Procter & Gamble, Kimberly-Clark, FedEx and more.
Rated as the #7 most influential entrepreneur in BI by Onalytics, I became known in the analytics community for my ‘blunt’ twitter comments and blogs which have been mentioned on numerous tech websites and blogs. That has led to some of my favorite top-rated keynotes include AnitaB.Org Hopperx London, the Real BI Conference at MIT, Facebook Women in Analytics, Google BlacktechMecca, Booz Allen Inspiration Series and Microsoft PASS Business Analytics Conference to name a few.
If you’re looking to kick off your event with a bang and get the audience at the edge of the seat let’s chat!
