Do you struggle to get enough actionable data from Google Analytics? Firstly, know you’re not alone. Secondly, you need to listen to Russell McAthy, CEO and co-founder of Ringside Data. Russell is a prominent keynote speaker at marketing events talking about data attribution and forecasting. And today he and Guido talk about the new tool he's building, why Google Analytics is probably not enough for your business, and how you can do actionable forecasting. “We decided to create Ringside in the summer of 2019.

This is a bonus episode with Emily Robinson (Senior Data Scientist at Warby Parker) en Lukas Vermeer (Director of Experimentation at Booking.com). In her earlier session that day, Emily said that real progress starts when you put your work online for others to see and comment on which in this case was about Github. Someone from the audience wondered how that works out in larger companies where a manager or even a legal department might not be overly joyous about that to say the least so I asked Emily about her thoughts on that.
