Vince draws on 20 years of experience solving complex data problems. As founder of Eurobios, Head of Data Analytics at Ocado and most recently, Chief Scientist at King.com (Candy Crush etc) Vince has built and run a team of over 80 data scientists. Segmentation and prediction go hand in hand when it comes to customers. Successful companies personalise every step of the customer journey – and also get the timing right. The right product and service offering must appear at the right time to individual customers. He will share some of his insights into how you can use data to achieve this, not just in a casual gaming company with over 350,000,000 unique monthly users, but in your business. How can you use data to turn knowledge into real, practical benefits to businesses, that can be implemented next week, not next year.

This is Big Data, but not as you know it.
