At Predict 2015, Todd Curry shared his guidance for dealing with data, including advice on why presentation is key.

As the new CEO of the Aon Centre for Innovation and Analytics (ACIA), Curry oversees a staff of over 100 delivering data-driven insights to clients who sometimes demand perfection.

In response to those requests, Curry asks, “Why won’t an imperfect answer do?”

The key to a client’s understanding of the ACIA’s work, however, is communication, and that’s why packaging the data in an understandable format is mission-critical.
