Blending team requirements with business objectives and building skills and capability to match, is an essential and pivotal driver of business value.

Join our webinar and discover the five essential strategies to building a successful data science team.

Hosted by Rich Pugh, Chief Data Scientist of Mango Solutions, shortlisted for the 2020 Data & Analytics ‘Leader of the Year (Enabler)‘ award and part of the DataIQ 100.

Python continues to be one of the top programming languages to learn – with its easy-to-learn design and clean and well-structured code, Python builds powerful and effective web applications.

Though Python has been around for a while, it continues to rise in its popularity and so makes sense for users to learn this language in 2020, adding another notch to a developers programming belt.

In this webinar, we look at why Python is one of the most commonly used open source languages around the globe today. We will show how to use Python within a data science workflow: with examples of data inspection, data wrangling, data visualisation and some base statistics and machine learning.

Data science is all about capturing data in an insightful way, whereas Machine Learning is a key area of it.

Machine learning is a form of AI that enables a system to perform a specific task, without the need for explicit instructions – through machine learning algorithms, mathematical models can be trained on previous data to make powerful predictions on future, unseen data.

In this introductory webinar, we will guide you through what Machine Learning is and provide you with an overview of how it is performed in R with a handy demo to give an insight into how this is carried out.

Building the Ultimate Analytic Team

Data Science is a Team Sport and assembling the right analytic team for each task is all about the perfect blend of skills.

From Bobby Moore, Geoff Hurst and Martin Peters claiming the 1966 World Cup Final for England, to Black Widow, Iron Man and The Hulk saving reality as we know it, it was initially down to Alf Ramsey or Nick Fury sorting the right talents into the right combinations.

That’s easier said than done, and success depends on tackling a number of challenges.

In this webinar, Chief Data Scientist, Rich Pugh discusses what it takes to build a truly great team: from setting expectations and assessing your current team’s skills sets, to upskilling and pulling the right people together to form a strong team.
