Judith and Carly will speak about Fonterra – today and in the future – and the
strategic role of data and analytics in continuing to build an Innovative Co-op.


Kat Greenbrook, Founder, Rogue Penguin
Rogue Penguin is a data visualisation agency in Wellington. She has a
background in analytical modelling and graphic design. Her focus now is
around helping businesses tell their data stories.
Not all data visualisations should be created equally. Kat will introduce some
basic principles of graphic design that you can then apply to enhance your
data visualisation storytelling. To prove it’s easily done when you know how,
she’ll step through a data viz makeover.


Stefan Schliebs, Lead Data Scientist at Quantiful and Co-founder of the
Data Science Academy

Stefan holds a PhD degree in computer science and worked for many years
in both academic and commercial environments. He is a co-organizer of the R
User Meetup Group Auckland. Stefan is passionate about empowering data
professionals to help them delivering high quality data outputs, follow best
practice and use modern data science tools in their daily work.
He will be discussing building Web applications in R :- ‘R Shiny’ is a web
framework to rapidly develop data focused web applications and dashboards.
It promises to enable data scientists to develop interactive data products on
their own without requiring in-depth knowledge of HTML and Javascript.
Stefan has been working with Shiny for the last 3 years and would like to
share his experience with the wider analytics community. He will be covering
