What Matters in a World of Data
5 December 2018

We have access to more data than ever before, but are we making the most of it and is it secure?  The next event from the Bay of Plenty branch of Institute of Directors will look at opportunities for analytics that increase customer knowledge to improve marketing outcomes and enable you to tailor offers.  It will also cover organisations that are working with ‘big data’, taking advantage of automation and AI to process large amounts of information that is beyond the limits of human processing.  This event is being held from 12pm until 2pm on Wednesday 5 December at the Tauranga Club, 72 Devonport Rd, Tauranga and costs $40 for Institute of Directors members and $50 for non-members to attend (including lunch).  Click here for further information and to register.
