    Bill Schmarzo: Speak the language of the business

    If data and analytics are going to be taken seriously by business executives, we need to talk about value in their language. Today I speak with the Dean of Big Data Bill Schmarzo about the skills, mindsets and mental models we need as data practitioners to find a revenue connection in everything we do. Follow Bill Schmarzo on https://www.notion.so/Bill-Schmarzo-COPY-e7e2e67907974582b796208b523a7cfa (LinkedIn).

    📣 New sponsorship program!!!
    I created this podcast to help practitioners have a real impact on the business. It's a place to learn, to innovate and to connect with the minds that are shaping this industry. Today I'm excited to announce that we'll launch a new sponsorship program. This is for innovative purpose, dream and brands that are really committed to education, that believe in diversity and curiosity and that want to help data teams be more effective. If this resonates with you hop over at http://discoveringdata.com/sponsors (discoveringdata.com/sponsors), you'll be able to send a quick application through so I can review it and get back to you as soon as possible!
    💬 Other ways to get in touch
    One of the things I always struggle with when listening to podcasts is the disconnect between me listening and consuming content and the people that are thinking who to interview and what to talk about. So to make this journey more interactive and perhaps more useful you can now get in touch directly with the form at http://discoveringdata.com/review (discoveringdata.com/review). On the same page you'll find some quick links. If you have time to deliver a review only takes 30 seconds and it really helps us to get these ideas out into the world. I really hope that this is going to open up a new way to shape the direction of the podcast and make it more fun, more engaging, more relevant!
