AI in Retail: Beyond The Hype and Into Reality for Store Operations.
The term "AI" is often thrown around, but what does it really mean?
Data & Insights Manager.
I work with our clients to understand what it is they need, and then my team and I set Quorso up to meet (and hopefully exceed!) their requirements.
Being there for the whole journey from a potential client talking to us about a problem they want to solve, through to seeing the app in the hands of hundreds of Store Managers across their organization.
I started in retail, working on the registers in a grocer (Tesco) while studying, before moving to work in analytics and sales forecasting in their head office. After that I spent 5 years in consulting (McKinsey), focusing on operations across Europe, and occasionally further afield.
Tesco: Implementing a weather-based forecasting system. My obsession with how the average Brit plans their BBQs was frankly unhealthy.
McKinsey: Learning how to drop into any country and any industry, and quickly be able to understand what you need to do to help people.
Quorso: Introducing Quorso to the wonderful world of retail!
Quorso: Excel functions.
IRL: Board games.
In even more industries than now. The flexibility of what we have all built together really excites me.
Working in an analytical role in a customer-driven industry like retail. There’s always something new to learn!
I’ve lived most of my life in London but I grew up in a small village and would return to that life. Then I’d spend every day going for long hikes and eating ploughman’s lunches in local pubs.
A mutual acquaintance of Julian’s sent me in his direction for a chat. After understanding what Julian and Dan were doing, and realizing how it differed from how most people think of analytical tools, I had to join.
Dan. He has some pretty unique stories.
I’m always impressed with what Igor and Roma have built, especially when you see what they had to start with!
Using delivered recipe boxes to learn to cook more than just a few staples. My wife and I really enjoy doing that together every day.
Pausing notifications on Slack.
I listen to a documentary and make models.
I think we could do something really interesting in manufacturing.
There are many paths to success.
