I would like to thank Gauthier for the great course. I indeed learned a lot from Gauthier on the softer side of managing Data initiatives. The speaker sessions and the Berkeley symposium gave great learnings as well.

It was a real pleasure to get data knowledge from Gauthier. The way that he teaches is dynamic and updated. His market understanding is a differential, and his guests were also important to get this view. The new information will be important to use in my job.
