Above Board Chamber webinar to help the bottom line for businesses

Businesses across Southwest Florida and the country are looking to bounce back from the damage that the pandemic has done to their bank accounts. The Above Board Chamber of Florida’s upcoming two-part webinar will provide help to these organizations through harnessing the power of data. On Tuesday, April 6 and Tuesday, April 13 from noon to 1 p.m., the Chamber will present “What is Data Literacy and How Can it Help Your Bottom Line?”

This two-part Zoom presentation will help members and guests better understand the value of data literacy and how the knowledge and use of data can improve a business’s profitability and success.

According to Gartner, the world’s leading information technology research and advisory company, data literacy is “having the ability to read, write and communicate data in context, including an understanding of data sources and constructs, analytical methods and techniques applied, and the ability to describe the use, application and resulting value.”

We live in a data-driven society, and data is more available than ever before. Collecting and understanding data equips business owners and executives with the knowledge to make the right decisions at the right time, enabling them to manage and stay ahead of change.

Having data available and using it to guide your business are two different things. Putting data to use requires application, not just collection. Data is the key to your business’s future, and data literacy can help your business make decisions and uncover new insights and opportunities based on concrete facts.

Emceed by Jeanne Sweeney, CEO/Founder of the Above Board Chamber of Florida and Timothy Dupre, President and CEO of Conditioned Air, the expert panel includes:

Laura Madsen, Partner at Via Gurus, who will be live from Minneapolis;

Jerry DiMaso, President of The Data Literacy Foundation, who will be live from New Jersey and

Lake Yoke, Operations/Data Analyst at Island Piling Manufacturing, who will be live from Naples, Fla.

Sponsors for the webinars are Conditioned Air and Siena Wealth Advisory Group.
