Praise for Look at Your Data

Pete took our raw data and provided consumer and product sale insight that we would have not have otherwise accessed. His recommendations and ideas have made us do things differently to great success. If you are looking to make efficiencies, increase product margins, or saving lots of time completing basic spreadsheets and want to introduce more automated methods, then Pete is your man!

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Laura Day, Director, Our Kid Ltd

Pete had a hard job of explaining Kanban in 1 hour to creative people. I think he nailed it. Pete used a great visual example and metaphor that really simplified it to a level we could understand and with great humour. We are definitely taking forward some of our learnings. It was well worth Pete visiting us.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Sally Thornhill, Senior Producer, BBC

Pete loves looking at data and it shows. Besides looking over month by month sales reports, I tend to neglect or even be unaware of the data I have.

Pete is methodical in his approach. His investigative nature allowed him to uncover customer and sales patterns I was unaware of. He mapped out my business in a way I’d never looked at it before. Not only that, but his service extends to workable recommendations based on his findings.

It can be hard to view your own business from the outside in, but Pete’s interpretation and final report gave me an alternative viewpoint and something I can work with to develop my business.

I still don’t look at all of my data, but I’m very pleased that Pete does

He actually mingles with colleagues, he makes an effort to get to know his co-workers and he’s proactive in understanding our company goals and how they relate to his position. Pete isn’t afraid to share his expertise and when doing so, he’s very good at keeping his audience in mind, always making sure his material makes sense – whether he’s a key speaker at an Agile event or presenting back to us non-techie / sales colleagues in the office!

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Chris Domville, reported to Peter at Evolution Recruitment

“Peter did impressive work on LBM’s market file (the most critical database in a company that sells market data) developing integration, data cleaning and data mining processes. In particular he took the incredibly complex cleansing and branching mechanism and stabilized it into an automated process.”

⭐⭐⭐⭐ Keith Henry, managed Peter at LBM

“Pete joined my data development team at InterAct as the company transitioned from an Excel-based analytics model to a Business Objects one (the same journey that Pete himself was on at the time). He was always hard working and passionate and smart, with an ability to get his head around difficult concepts.

Under my wing Pete moved from a junior team member to a more senior one. Indeed, when the company was eventually sold, Pete’s presentation of our data visualisations (although they were just called graphs back then) were a key factor. I enjoyed working with him.”

⭐⭐⭐⭐ Dan Jankowski, Head of Data Development, InterAct Systems, managed Peter at Inter.Act Systems
