Red Olive training

We are passionate about what we do, which is why we enjoy sharing our knowledge.

Our data experts can provide training in a range of analytical and data skills, ranging from best practice data modelling to building effective visualisations using Gestalt psychology. For example, our hands-on courses in SPSS and R are an effective alternative to solo study. We can provide ongoing mentoring, too, to help cement the formal training as your staff apply their skills day to day.

We have worked with a wide range of public and private organisations, including the Metropolitan Police. It tasked us with showing analysts officers how to create a richer understanding by using supplementary data, like weather conditions and high street occupancy. We showed how to test for correlations to identify likely crime hot spots.

The candidates use what we showed them day to day in the fight against crime, and we’ve since been asked to extend the programme to many further forces.

Let us take the strain

Data analysis is a specialised field. If you want the best people working on your project, it’s smarter to contract them for the period you need, rather than adding permanent cost through full-time staff.

We have spent many years embedded with some of the largest utility and publishing firms – in Britain and beyond – providing skills that they can’t call on in-house. Some of these contracts last for weeks, but others can run for years, giving you complete flexibility and total control of your budget.

Our talented staff are experts in their field, and will act on an advisory basis, or can be implanted within your organisation, under your management, to plug existing skills gaps without the expense of training your own staff.
