We’re excited to announce the first Fast Forward Labs Data Leadership Conference! Join us April 28 in New York City as we discuss how to build strong data teams in complex organizations. You can register here.
In a recent Computerworld article, our CEO & Founder Hilary Mason explained common pitfalls organizations face when trying to build a data-driven organization: they over-invest in technical architecture, hire the wrong people, or lack the leadership focus required to cut across political silos, and foster innovation and change.
At this half-day event, you’ll see how organizations across several industries successfully hire, structure teams, prioritize projects, operationalize results, and drive excellence for their data capabilities. You’ll also have a chance to network with data leaders from a rich variety of backgrounds and industries.
The event will feature insights from recognized leaders in the field, including a keynote on building a data culture (Daniel Tunkelang), a panel featuring perspectives from Booz Allen Hamilton, Mashable, and Dstillery, an overview of our research at Fast Forward Labs, and introductions to our favorite machine intelligence startups.
We’re grateful to Booz Allen Hamilton, our partner in producing this event. Make sure to check out the great work they’re doing in the Data Science Bowl!
We look forward to seeing you April 28! Please send questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.

by with — Twitter users can retweet, like or reply to a tweet. If a tweet from a prominent account gets more replies than retweets then that’s usually Not Good. Take, for example, this recent tweet from United Airlines. It got three times more replies than retweets. Those replies are not filled with praise, and that ratio was a sign to United’s PR team that they were in trouble, in case it wasn’t alread...
