Nelson, Best Buy’s SVP of Data & Analytics will open Analytics Unite: The Summit for Retail and Consumer Brands, which will be LIVE, June 21-23 in Chicago!

The Summit brings together the brightest in data and analytics in the retail and consumer goods communities over three insight-packed days.

Nelson will explore the main theme of the event and highlight how the organization has accelerated operations to meet changing market demands and where it is placing big future bets. She will address the need to put the proverbial pedal to the metal in regard to analytic talent attraction and nurturing, technology and product innovation, as well as how to turn this lightning-fast growth into a data-driven competitive advantage.
