Meet Your Instructor

I am a globally recognized expert on AI Strategy and Data Science. I have been a LinkedIn Top Voice in Data Science and featured on dozens of Top 10 Lists over the last 7 years. I prepare my clients to profit from Machine Learning.

My client list includes Walmart, JPMC, Siemens, and Airbus. I deliver products with recurring revenue streams in the $100’s of millions and build Data Science teams from the ground up. I advise startups and teach founders how to launch their first Machine Learning based product.

I founded V-Squared in 2012 and have built it into a successful AI Strategy consulting practice. Strategy is something I live through my own business. I implement the strategies I create for clients and follow projects through execution. My capabilities span beyond strategic theory because I have deep roots in downstream processes that connect strategy to outcomes.

Seminar Objectives

The C Suite is focused on the AI Last Mile Problem, which is the disconnect between development, production, and monetization. In this seminar, you will learn a framework that addresses the AI Last Mile Problem from the technical and business perspectives.

Data professionals are expected to communicate for impact. This seminar teaches a communications framework to transition from speaking for comfort to communicating for impact with various audiences.

Businesses are struggling to transition from exploring data and models to implementing and monetizing them. This seminar teaches you to identify opportunities to apply data and models with obvious and significant business impacts.

Senior leaders are dragged into managing the technology and workflows, which leads to micromanagement. The AI Governance Framework taught in this seminar gives senior leaders the tools to manage the value creation side of projects while freeing up data professionals to execute.

Data professionals are pulled into business roles and taken away from their highest value activities. You will learn what parts of the opportunity identification process to hand back to the business and how to help them succeed in creating a high-value opportunity pipeline.
