After the great inaugural meet up back in February, we're ready for Part II. Join us for an evening of chat, networking, presentations and Q&As around the Looker platform, data and analytics.

Date: Wednesday 10th July


6:00 - 6:30pm: Registration, Food & Networking

6:30 - 6:40pm: Welcome and Introduction - Jon Palmer, Head of BI at GoCardless and Mark Rittman, CEO of Rittman Analytics

6:40 - 7:00pm: “Getting Started with Looker” - Baha Sahin, Onfido
Over the last 8 months, Onfido has been through a journey of selecting a BI vendor, overhauling its data architecture, rolling out Executive Dashboards and launching Looker as its new BI Portal. They have learned a lot at each step of this journey, which Baha is looking forward to sharing with the wider Looker community.

7:00 - 7:20pm: “Balancing Liquidity in an On-Demand Staffing Marketplace” - Charles Armitage, Florence
Florence is an on demand staffing platform that brings together nursing homes (demand) and nurses (supply) to fill last-minute shift vacancies across the UK. In order to keep its supply and demand balanced, Florence built a model with Looker to intelligently target their marketing, onboarding, and sales efforts. Charles will share how they scoped out the problem, built a solution, and what further avenues they are looking to take to improve this matching process.

7:20 - 7:35pm: Update from Looker - Dave Hughes and Zara Wells, Customer Success at Looker
Dave and Zara from Looker Customer Success will give a brief update on what Looker’s been up to since our last meetup, and what’s on the horizon.

We’ll use this team for a Q&A with the evening’s presenters.
