Cohort-based Course

Create impact by influencing stakeholders, shaping decisions, and leveling up your Data leadership using lessons from companies like Uber.

Course overview

Analyzing is a science. Influencing is an art.

Every company wants to be data-driven.


They invest in data quality and Data Analysts / Scientists but then make decisions that are not rooted in insights.


Why does this happen? Because there's a broken connection between the data and the strategy.


This is where you come in. Your job is not to analyze. It's to make an impact, but often we're never taught how to influence stakeholders and shape their decisions.



We have to learn it on their own. Until now.


This course will evolve your perspective on what stakeholders care about and give you the skills to connect and shape their decisions. It will teach you the art of influence.


I'll share my highly actionable P.A.C.E (Prioritize, Analyze, Communicate, and Execute) framework and tactics from my 13+ year career at high-growth companies, like Uber, that you can embed into your day-to-day work.


If you've been frustrated by spending weeks on analysis only for it to be left unread, been passed up for promotion even though you felt you were making an impact, or just want to develop your career, this course is designed for you.
