Introducing Your Keynote Speakers

How did they discover the importance of analytics? What do they like to read? What makes a speech memorable? What are they working on now?

Read these Q&A blogs with Jonah Lehrer, Jeff Ma and David Salsburg to get to know them a little bit better. You’ll see that you have a lot to look forward to in September.

Are you just beginning to make analytical discoveries with JMP?

You’ll leave motivated to interact with your data to see patterns and understand trends.

“I’m a new professional, just starting to think about using JMP. The conference was exciting and exposed me to a lot: who’s using JMP and for what kinds of projects. The plenary speakers were very interesting and caused me to think about analytics and how organizations interact with analytics.” — Discovery Summit 2010 Attendee

Are you an experienced user?

You’ll leave with techniques that enable you to implement strategy more efficiently.

“I enjoy learning new release features, seeing them in action, watching problem-solving showcases presented by the finest analysts, connecting with developers and networking.”— Discovery Summit 2010 Attendee

Are you interested in making analytics the rule, rather than the exception?

Whether or not you use JMP, you’ll leave with new ideas for spreading analytic excellence across your organization.

“For my roles and responsibilities as a director, the ability to see how other companies, industries and problem solvers are applying analytics and visualization in respect to different business problems is the most valuable aspect of this conference.”
