How would your organisation benefit if you could increase your model accuracy by 1%? Recently Nestle increased their forecasting accuracy by 4% which led to huge savings, especially during promotions. Charlie Chase, author of Demand Driven Forecasting and Bricks Matter will kick off the evening by explaining how this was achieved and how you too can radically improve your use of analytics.

After Charlie gets us started we’ll move into an open debate trying to resolve the big question: how can you improve your forecasting and gain an advantage in an increasingly competitive market?

The discussion will take place in the Haymarket Hotel’s newly refurbished Nash Dining Room with networking being served at the spectacular pool area.

SAS, world leaders in advanced analytics and business forecasting, have kindly agreed to support the event.
