I’m giving a talk at the IQPC “Data Management and Knowledge Discovery” conference in Frankfurt which is next week – I’m speaking on Tuesday, following Colin Sandercock (which is always a pleasure, even if I feel somewhat intimidated!).
It won’t be a surprise to know that by now I have very little to do with the topics I speak on – there’s a discussion between our marketing people and the conference people, and I don’t really think about it until a few days beforehand.
So imagine how pleased I am to be giving a talk entitled “Lessons from the edge: Think now or pay later”. Maybe it’s me being suspicious but the titles of my talks are getting ever-more “interesting” – I suspect down in marketing they’re having a great time dreaming up weird titles just to see how I cope with making them somehow interesting & relevant. I also notice that the titles get especially fun when I’m going to the conference on my own, with no one from marketing within striking range.
Don’t worry guys, I will get my revenge, at a time and place of my choosing…
And now, to work!
