Data Analysis Australia
Data Analysis Australia is the leading strategic information consultancy in Australia. Our exceptional skills in mathematics, statistics and data management provide a strong background for work that is often used for strategic decision making purposes. Our reputation has been built on our ability to provide workable solutions to difficult problems across all industries.
The strength of Data Analysis Australia lies in our flexible approach to integrating the above areas of expertise to provide cost effective and applicable solutions for clients.
After more than 12 years of hard work and a lot of memorable moments, we are sad to say goodbye to Consultant Statistician Petra Roberts, who is leaving us to work full-time with her husband in their business. Petra has been a valuable staff member, being involved in well over 100 client projects in her time at Data Analysis Australia. She has also been our marketing manager since 2007, has coordinated many of our past newsletters and organised Data Analysis Australia’s 25th anniversary function, held in September last year.
Consultant Statistician, Taryn Major, is now on long term leave for 12 months. Taryn is studying towards a Masters Degree in Biostatistics through Macquarie University.
155km Bike Ride
On Friday 24 January, Senior Consultant Statistician Kathy Haskard participated in the 2014 BUPA Challenge Tour in South Australia, cycling the full 155 km route of Stage 4 of the Santos Tour Down Under, a six-day cycle race in the UCI World Cycling Tour, a series that includes the Tour De France. The route for this stage was from Adelaide to Victor Harbor via the Adelaide Hills and Fleurieu Peninsula. Kathy was one of 4500 cyclists who started in Adelaide for the full 155 km stage, among 6602 recreational riders overall. Well done Kathy!
7:30 Report Interview
John Henstridge, Director of Data Analysis Australia and President of the Statistical Society of Australia, was interviewed for the 7.30 report on the ABC as part of a story on the shortage of mathematics and statistics graduates in Australia. This was aired nation-wide on Friday 24 January, and John commented on the increasing number of successful applicants for positions at Data Analysis Australia who have trained overseas, particularly in New Zealand.
Congratulations to Emma Smith, who has been promoted to the role of Senior Consultant Statistician. Emma joined Data Analysis Australia in December 2008 as a Consultant Statistician and since then has been involved in over 100 consulting projects for over 50 different clients. As such, she is a familiar face to many of our clients and we are sure that all will agree her promotion is well-deserved.
