03 October @ 9:30 am - 1:00 pm, 10 St Bride Street, London, EC4A 4AD

Why should you choose this course?

Data is a change agent that challenges the ways in which business leaders have traditionally made decisions. Used effectively, analytics provides accurate business models and forecasts to support better decision making across all facets of a business. AI is radically different to all other emerging technologies. It has the power to massively change how an organisation functions and competes

The overall goal of this program is to ensure that participants understand the data analytics and Artificial Intelligence landscape in more detail so that they have sufficient understanding and knowledge to understand how these technologies may impact their business today and in the future.

This is not a technical course, it is for Business Leaders, Knowledge workers, and Functional Heads
