Data Analytics Workshop
Rafal Lukawiecki addressed the ASAUDIT community on 3 September 2015 at STIAS in Stellenbosch. As Strategic Consultant at Project Botticelli Ltd (http://projectbotticelli.com), Rafal focuses on making advanced analytics easy, insightful, and useful, helping clients achieve better organisational performance. Passing those skills to consultants, developers, and board members is important to him. He specialises in business intelligence, looking for valuable patterns and correlations using data mining, and he is also known for his work in cryptography, enterprise architecture, and solution delivery. Rafal has been a popular, well-travelled speaker at major IT conferences since 1998. He even had the honour of sharing keynote platforms with Bill Gates, Neil Armstrong, and Steve Ballmer. A natural educator, he explains complex concepts in simple terms in an engaging, enjoyable, energetic style. Rafal was born in Poland. He left it in 1990 to study computing in United Kingdom, where he earned BEng in Computing Science, fol¬lowed by MSc in Foundations of Advanced Information Technology, at Imperial College, University of London. His stud¬ies were sponsored by Oxford Computer Group Ltd, where he later worked as a developer, trainer, and a consultant. Since 2000 he has worked for Project Botticelli Ltd.
