    It might be a good opportunity to keep up with the latest industry analyst trend but it is in Chile. Ok I guess I will go for a conference in central US.

    This is an amazing opportunity that I wish I could’ve capitalized on. First, I would love to hear new and exciting ideas relating to business analytics. Being on the forefront of an industry is important. It would also be great to network with other individuals that are interested in a similar field. Hearing unexpected ways that analytics are being applied would be a highlight for me.
