Onsite Interactive Training Session for Data Analysts/Data Scientists

Dr. Zhou is offering a brand new service: a half-day (3 hours) interactive training session to help a company's data analysts/data scientists improve their skills and productivity. The format of the interactive training session is as follows:

1. Dr. Zhou first gives a 1.5 hours presentation to describe successful cases of using data analytics to solve business problems, share best practices, and talk about challenges.
2. For the remaining 1.5 hours, the audience asks questions and is actively engaged in discussion with Dr. Zhou.  This the best part!  As one of the scientists said, "Dr. Zhou has helped me solve an issue that I had struggled with for years".

The training session is designed for all data analysts/data scientists. Dr. Zhou shares his battle-tested strategies and best practices that are useful for them regardless what specific analytics tools or programming languages they use.

On April 23, 2019, Dr. Zhou delivered the interactive training session to one of the top three property insurance company located in Boston. It was extremely well received. The picture attached shows that I am making the presentation (in addition to people in the room, there are more people joining the meeting through the phone.) 

The following are the testimonials from two persons who took the course.

"We have learnt a lot from Dr.Zhou'", Gang Xu, Director, Data Science at Lincoln Financial Group
"Dr. Zhou gave us a great overview of procedures of doing a solid predictive analysis and illustrated real life AI consulting business cases. Dr. Zhou is really experienced in the AI space and his presentation was very well received by data scientists from Lincoln Financial Group. I would highly recommend any data science group to have Dr. Zhou sharing his experiences. "-  Dr. Hao Zhou, Principal Analyst,  Data Science at Lincoln Financial Group

The following are testimonials about my previous talks and training activities.

"It was a fortune to have Jay come to our computer science department to share his experience in solving business problems with predictive analytics on February 28, 2017. What Jay had presented in his 3 talks, each lasting for 1 hour in different topics of data mining, was totally impressive and beyond our wildest expectation. Having built competition-winning predictive models for some of the biggest companies and produced hundreds of millions of dollars’ savings, Jay shared the secret of his success with students and faculty without reservation. His strong presentations were such an inspiration for our computer science students and faculty and his methodology was innovative and powerful , even for very seasoned data scientists among the audience. Jay, thank you so much for your hard work preparing and delivering these presentations! " - Dr. Wei Ding, Professor at University of Massachusetts Boston

"Jay is more than just a coder, he is a great trainer, and a good presenter of theoretical data mining concepts so that they can be understood by most. "-James Lukenbill, Director of IT Project Management, Optum
