SSA Event open to NZSA members: Statistical Consulting in the 21st Century

Speakers:
Elyse Corless, Data Analysis Australia
Graham Hepworth, University of Melbourne
Hwan-Jin Yoon, Australian National University
Doug Zahn, Florida State University

Moderator: Alice Richardson, Australian National University

Event overview:
The past two decades have seen a phenomenal change in the landscape of statistical analysis. Datasets are now available that are of unprecedented volume, complexity in structure, and are coming from designs and sources that present new and exciting challenges.

What are the challenges in statistical consulting and how are they impacted by this changing landscape? What are the consulting and communication skills needed to support successful consultation? And what has been the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic?

We bring together four statistical consultants with vast collective experience to share their insights with us. Eminent international statistical consultant, Professor Doug Zahn, author of The Human Side of Statistical Consulting (a rare gem in the literature on consulting!) and From Stumbling Blocks to Stepping Stones: A Guide to Successful Meetings and Working Relationships, also invites you to send your stumbling blocks in communication for discussion. Each speaker will present a short talk, followed by a panel discussion.
