This talk will cover my frameworks & workflows to bring together technical knowledge with communication, problem solving and creativity to reach business outcomes with AI/ML and Data.

For extra context, we'll also apply these frameworks to some real-world use cases from Blackbook.ai, so the audience can understand how to put things into practice.
