Gabe has transitioned from being a graduate to working with senior members of the boardroom within a year and has demonstrated his ability to become an excellent data consultant – a journey which typically takes 2-3 years.
With an abundance of soft skills – hosting wide stakeholder audiences, taking ownership of large projects, creating, and reviewing thought-leadership content – Gabe is a mature and integral and key member of the Ascent Data Consulting Team, supporting mid-sized organisations with data strategy, data literacy, and ideation services. With the year, he’s swapped university lecture theatres to demystifying communications to 500-strong teams, and become a master communicator, conducting webinars on prioritising strategic initiatives on the Big Data London webinar platform.
According to Rich Pugh, (Data IQ100) Chief Data Scientist at Ascent, “Gabe has leveraged his strong academic background in data [1st class MMathStat in Mathematics and Statistics from the University of Warwick] to bridge the gap between the art of the possible with data and realistic business ambitions and capably act as a translator for data practitioners and business stakeholders of all seniorities. He mixes this with a common-sense approach, using his natural instincts, high levels of empathy, and attention to detail to ensure an excellent quality of output work and robust personal relationships with Ascent’s customers”.
In 9 months, Gabe has clearly demonstrated his leaderships skills and can confidently lead projects and coordinate all the moving parts. He has an excellent and engaging communication style and has a natural ability to communicate complex technical details to non-technical audiences, tailoring his style appropriately to the situation, from pre-sales conversations to customer workshops to stakeholder engagements.
