Chris Arnold (popularly known as the Data Whisperer) has been making data talk since the age of mainframes. Spanning quantitative and qualitative analysis, he has built high functioning quant teams and data mart solutions across pharmaceutical, automotive, and financial services industries; within risk, operations, and marketing domains. He has also conducted ethnographic research in the Amazon basin and focus groups for ‘pay now-die later‘ funeral insurance plans. Chris is also a Lecturer of Data Visualization in UC Berkeley’s data science program.
Chris speaks passionately about data graphic design, intuitive use of complex analytics, and the alleged intelligence of so-called business intelligence tools.
