Today I had the opportunity to attend the Triangle AMA’s Marketing Analytics Training Camp in Durham, NC (RTP). It was yet another awesome event sponsored by the Triangle AMA Chapter, who was recently recognized as one of the best in the nation!
An all-star cast of presenters, highlighted by Avinash Kaushik of Google, covered a range of analytics topics – each of which I’ll cover in more detail subsequent posts. In a nutshell, anyone in a Marketing role trying to prove their value (and who isn’t?) and become smarter/more effective can gain tremendous value from this workshop.
From a customer intelligence perspective, each of the topics areincredibly relevant to understanding how to manage the mountains of data available from various channels (web, social, traditional media, CRM, etc.) and translate that disparate information into actionable knowledge to be used as the basis for strategic decision making. So, without further delay…here’s the topic line up!
