Renown Keynote Speaker

Stephen Few, Perceptual Edge, will open the 2018 HEDW Conference on Monday, April 9 at 8 am with a keynote presentation, Data is Not the Solution.

“…Stephen Few will show how data professions, as routinely performed, are creating more confusion than understanding, more problems than solutions. He will go on to describe the shift in focus that must occur for data professionals and their organizations to produce the understanding that is needed to create a better world. In the world of higher education, this shift in focus is critical.”
