Working as a data scientist can be fun and exciting. You get hired and you have all these great ideas and projects that you would like to try out with all that big data lying around. A couple of weeks or even months later, things start to change. You start getting data engineering tasks, your projects and ideas get down-prioritized and you end up doing reporting and dashboards for executives. Does this sound familiar? If you are anything like Adrian, you might feel constrained by your environment; not to mention underused to your full potential.
In this session, Adrian will talk about his experiences and how a very old and unexpected book helped him understand the mechanisms that he can use to kill frustration, reduce stress and learn to give the maximum of his capabilities while adding value to the organization. He cannot promise you a "solution-fits-all" session, but what he DOES promise is an engaging, funny and honest session that will help you put things into perspective.
