Right from the beginning, working at Fusion allowed me to practice both the art and science of consulting. Completing a PhD in Ecology at the University of Calgary, I learned that progress requires communication and success comes from great insights packaged in even better stories. At Fusion, you learn to be a true mathematical storyteller. I work in macroeconomic modeling and every month I get to dive into the math, distilling data from an array of sources using a suite of models I am continually developing and improving. Once the math has told me what is happening, I get to become the story teller, figuring out what is important and what should be done and communicating those insights to our clients. As mathematical storytellers, Fusion is leading the growth of evidence-based decision making in retail by ensuring that data analytics isn’t just done well, but that its insights are effectively communicated to the people who can implement them.
