Title: “Consulting, knowledge transfer, impact case studies and statistics in practice”

Abstract: There is a growing interest by companies in learning more about how statistics can benefit them by analysis of their company data. This has led to a flurry of requests for consultancy work and a corresponding bottleneck of people available to do the work. Many companies value the stamp of a university and the mushrooming number of highly qualified business development staff being employed by universities are working hard to bring in more outside interest partly to achieve the impact case study requirements. This mismatch is a nuisance but doesn’t detract from the pleasure of having so many enquiries. This talk will describe some of the interesting work currently undergoing at Newcastle University with an aside about our scientific approach to preparing impact case studies.
