Born to Solve | Think Like an Alteryx Champion

Published on

Do you know Alteryx inside and out but still have trouble understanding how experienced users see a solution, think of a problem, or envision a way to solve it? In this informal session, Patrick, Esther and Joe put an analytic problem in front of Alteryx users and watch how they figure it out. Their hope is that you walk away understanding not only a problem, but the different approaches and mindsets that can be taken to solve it.

Patrick Digan - Actuary, MedPro Group
Esther Bezborodko - Senior IT Trainer, McKinsey & Co., Inc
Joe Miller - Director, Customer Enablement, Alteryx
