Increasingly more organizations realize that, in order to stay ahead, they should not only store data, but actually leverage it. Whether you want to gain more insight, let data drive your decisions, or embed data into your product, the people with the appropriate skills and experience are hard to find. Organizations should not forget to look at the people they already have. With a workshop or two (and plenty of practice), a developer will be able to create beautiful data visualizations or a business analyst will be able to implement a state-of-the-art forecasting model.
Data Science Workshops is not only our name, it's also our bread and butter. In January 2017, after having done various data science projects and workshops as a consultant, Jeroen Janssens decided to found a new company that focuses on workshops only. Although we're technically still very young, we already had the pleasure of helping some great organizations.
