Get faster, smarter, nicer data science consultants

The Podcast

I’m working on a podcast. I’m talking to data science professionals about how they work smarter, faster and nicer.

The form is still evolving. I have a few guests lined up.

This is my sexy technology: aren’t they lovely mics?

Be my guest!

If you’d like to be a podcast guest then talk to me.

Some ideas

The questions I’m looking at include these:

Working smarter: Explaining things
  • what’s your tip for making the complex simpler for non-technical people?
  • how do you prepare to explain things?
  • do you have favourite metaphors?
  • any good stories about doing it wrongly (or rightly?)
Working smarter and nicer: Saying no
  • what do you say no to
  • what do you like to say yes to
  • something you said yes to that you’re happy about, something you said no to that you’re happy about
  • any tips on saying no (how to say no nicely, and make a no feel like a yes)
Working smarter and faster: Managing time – how do you do it?
  • daily routines and rituals
  • prioritising and overwhelm
  • keeping meetings¬†under control
  • salvaging a meeting gone bad
  • work life balance

Working smarter, faster and nicer: Professional development – how do you do it?

  • podcasts
  • books
  • training
  • other things?
Working smarter: The challenges of leading
  • your hard-learned lessons
  • the hard things
  • the easy things
Working nicer:
  • favourite charity
  • attracting talent
  • making work a great place to work
  • advice to your younger self
