Pioneering British Physician, Ben Goldacre, to Keynote Data and Analytics User Conference in London
Irvine, Calif.—Aug. 21, 2018—Alteryx, Inc. (NYSE: AYX), revolutionizing business through data science and analytics, today announced Ben Goldacre, MBE as the featured keynote speaker for its third annual European user conference, taking place Oct. 8-10 in London, UK. Inspire Europe 2018 will welcome hundreds of customers, partners and industry leaders to share how they’ve embraced the thrill of solving with Alteryx, and discuss the latest trends in data science and analytics.
Alteryx selected this year’s keynote speaker as he’s known for his provocative insights and questioning the status quo. Ben Goldacre is an award-winning writer, doctor, academic and campaigner, who specializes in unpicking scientific claims made by media and organizations. He is currently a senior clinical research fellow at the University of Oxford and his books have sold more than 600,000 copies worldwide in 31 languages. His academic and policy work is in epidemiology and evidence-based medicine, and he has written policy papers for the UK government. He founded the AllTrials campaign and received an MBE “For Services to Evidence in Policy” in the 2018 Queen’s Honours.
Goldacre is altering the approach to medical and scientific research, consistent with the conference theme, “Alter.Everything,” which challenges attendees to step out of their comfort zones to alter history, alter trends, alter their career, alter analytics. Each keynote, breakout track and training are strategically designed to present an unconventional convention, focused on celebrating Alteryx customers and their amazing use cases in data science and analytics. Alteryx keynote speakers include, Dean Stoecker, chief executive officer (CEO); Olivia Duane Adams, chief customer officer (CCO); Langley Eide, chief strategy officer (CSO); and Ashley Kramer, senior vice president of product management.
“We are excited to continue learning how our customers are altering—or Alteryxing—everything in the European and international markets, to discuss how Alteryx can help solve unique regional challenges and to foster candid discussions on how data science and analytics is evolving globally,” said Dean Stoecker, CEO of Alteryx. “Our self-service Alteryx platform is empowering our customers and partners to influence the next-generation workforce, solve global challenges and bring the thrill of solving to their own organizations and careers. We look forward to bringing our unconventional convention to London and to break through what’s possible in the future of analytics.”
Inspire Europe is hosted at the InterContinental London—The O2 in London, UK on Oct. 8-10, 2018 and is made possible by sponsoring partners, including Tableau, The Information Lab, Snowflake, Exasol, De Villiers Walton Limited, Theobald Software and MB Research.
