Talk About Data and Analytics

Woman communicating with colleagues

NACUBO's Talk About Data and Analytics (TADA) are interactive sessions with members that focus on conversation rather than presentation. Session content and discussion questions are informed via member input. Facilitators are selected among active volunteer members, adding diverse institutional perspectives and rich examples to the discussion.


Participants discuss and explore different ways business officers can leverage analytics.  Each 75-minute interactive session provides participants the opportunity to—

  • Share experiences, challenges, solutions, and resources  
  • Brainstorm and share strategies 
  • Network with colleagues at other institutions 


We encourage you to read the appropriate sections of Dr. Parnell’s book prior to the discussions. The book, You Are a Data Person, dives into enhancing your data mindsets and helps you identify as a data contributor—no matter your data background—and will provide a solid foundation for conversations with your colleagues.


You can also register for one or more sessions by clicking on the button below. Be sure to register at least 24 hours before each session you’d like to attend.
