Keynote: Sterne Measures
Jim Sterne, Founder, eMetrics Summit
Social, Mobile, Online, Offline, Integrated Marketing - it all adds up to Big Data. Jim offers a quick look at Big Data as a concept and the technology that is driving it and then looks hard at the piece that has seen no tangible improvements for hundreds of years: the art of analysis. Given petabytes of data and the power to manipulate it at will, how do you go about asking questions and solving problems? Jim offers some thinking about thinking, some insights into the creation of insights and some practical advice about applying yourself and managing others in this data-driven but highly creative world.

By the Numbers - More or Less
Michael Blastland, Author of "The Tiger that Isn’t" & Creator of the BBC Radio 4 series "More or Less"
Business runs on numbers. But when we choose which numbers to collect, how to order, analyse or interpret them, we run a risk. At every stage, we seek and find only what we want to find, or what others expect, finding evidence where there is none, certainty where there’s doubt, and imposing our ideas on the data rather than letting it speak. Using varied and vivid examples, Michael offers tricks and instincts to help spot these traps – or maybe to use on the boss who is too convinced of his own story to see them.
