Data and AI introduction

Coming from a Business Management background I understand how daunting topics around data and technology can be. But if you have any interest in these topics at all then this is the session for you!

I am here to debunk any myths that you must have completed a Computer Science or Maths degree to work in this space. I will be discussing my own personal journey from studying Business Management at MMU, to working for IBM as a Data and AI consultant, to working at Natwest designing and building their customer facing chatbot. I will be sharing my views on useful skills to have and things I wish I had known whilst still at uni.

There will also be a Q&A session at the end for any burning questions on things I haven’t covered. I look forward to meeting you all there!
