Bridging the gap between analytics and value

Customers invest in products and services that create value for them. Value can be most effectively illustrated through stories that connect the dots of performance data, insights and visualization with the customer’s perception of value at a given moment. Assembling and evolving these stories requires nuanced playbooks that connect and empower analytics, product, sales and customer teams. In this session, a framework to expose and overcome common value story pitfalls will be introduced.

Join us at 4:00 p.m. featuring Jen Seale, Vice President of Analytics at Olive. Following the talk food and drinks will be provided for an hour of networking!
