Data Science Demystified (18.01 18:00)


Data is everywhere, in our smartphones, in social media, in public transport, on the websites we visit – to name a few!
Data Science was designated the sexiest job of the XXI Century: cool and trendy tech, finding “hidden” patterns, a hot topic!
Why should then just a few do the sexy work?
While it’s true that the field is vast, can get complicated, and it’s technically demanding, a basic grasp of data literacy is more and more valuable for everyone working and living in a digital society!
In this session, we will learn the most important concepts and bring them with us to explore the data world, this while we foster our mind to discover how to be data-driven in our work and life.

I attended a 5-day workshop from Gonçalo. He puts a lot of effort and creativity into his preparation and makes every session interesting. As a trainer, he is a great facilitator and a patient listener. I liked in his sessions how he visualized evidence-based models and made us understand difficult topics easily. He can easily engage everyone in his sessions. I appreciated a lot the reflection time where he invited us, participants, to share thoughts and step out of our comfort zone.

I had the privilege to work with Gonçalo for several times. We organized training events and delivered them together in different contexts and organizations. His passion for training and education is truly inspiring. He’s one of the most versatile trainers I’ve met. Despite his passion for data science, he’s able to deliver with excellent quality all types of training. Soft-skills, technical topics such as data science or machine learning, or even how to use poetry to manage your emotions. There is a connection in everything he does, and the content of all kinds of sessions he prepares is very rich and with different insights. He never forgets the human component that makes the difference in any kind of session. As a person, he’s extremely generous and humble. He has an inner desire to constantly self improve, and he values the feedback of everyone. Gonçalo is a passionate trainer and human being who loves to connect and share knowledge above all.
