Dr. Grace Kite

We picked a card, any card, and drew the econometrics Ace and Founder of magic numbers, Dr. Grace Kite.

Grace has over 20 years of number crunching experience across all the main advertising buying categories and is dead set on helping marketers make the most of their data.

Tune in as we pull a ton of topics out of a hat, including her first job at a bingo hall, her fascination with real people, why data people need people skills, explaining analytics to clients like they’re a mate in the pub, whether ROI is higher when advertisers commit more budget, strategies for marketing effectiveness in a recession, and loads more.

Open sesame your ears and let the smarts pour in.
