"It’s the combination of the business acumen and technical know-how that drives value."

How I put change in motion

As a Data Science Manager, I spend my days helping clients solve challenges using data. This involves everything from understanding the information they gather and analyzing the data to find unknown trends and patterns to my favorite part: coding and creating models using artificial intelligence (AI).

I recently worked with a commercial insurance company, helping provide data-driven insights for their property and marine businesses. We brought together a range of external datasets together with the client’s own proprietary data to aid underwriters in their risk-score evaluation of each new prospect.

Working with a diverse team with different expertise and skills is so valuable in delivering lasting results. No two perspectives come at the same problem in the same way, which leads to innovative solutions. I believe it’s the combination of the business acumen and technical know-how that drives value.

A day in my life

I really enjoy that no two days are the same, and each day feels as though it’s building on the last. I’m either working toward a goal or starting something new—it’s really rewarding to feel yourself developing.

Here’s a look at my typical day:

  • Start with coffee, without fail!
  • Daily stand-up meeting to check in with the team.
  • Then, depending on the project stage:
    1. Attend workshops that focus on ensuring the data science solution aligns to the business outcome;
    2. Develop a data science model; or
    3. Create a presentation to share the outcomes of what we’ve built.

My advice

The key lesson I’ve learned is how to explain complex topics in a clear, easy-to-understand way. Being able to illustrate complicated details to a business audience coming from different areas of expertise and levels is so important.
