Reading Time: 2 minutes

COVID-19 and the requirement for social distancing are proving challenging for countless companies. A major challenge many face is how to move entire teams off-site while keeping productivity high. Although we’re all used to video conferencing, such calls commonly fail to facilitate the small day-to-day interactions that many rely on to find out “what’s going on”.

At Bennett Data Science, we’ve always been a fully-distributed team, meaning we don’t all work in one office. And at no time in the past has this been more of an advantage for us than now.

Why am I telling you this?

In my search to help others in this time of need, I’m offering free 15-minute A.I. Power Sessions to two people / companies per day, every day. 

During these 1:1 sessions, we can talk about anything related to your challenges managing a now-fully-distributed team, how to stay motivated, the importance of a private office, how to run meetings with stakeholders, or anything else that might help you adapt to your new environment and challenges. Whether it’s A.I. related or not, I’m happy to help in any way I can!

We’ve run data science teams and initiatives at big (Fortune 200) and small (think, just got funding) companies as well as orchestrated large-scale data science projects that impacted millions of customers. And we did it all as a distributed team, only occasionally entering an office or holding face-to-face meetings.

I can only hold two meetings per day, so sign up now for your preferred slot! You can set up a calendar invite with me using this special calendar link

I look forward to hearing from you and hope you are, and stay, well!

All the best,
Zank & the Bennett Data Science team

Are you looking for a way to contribute to slowing the COVID-19 pandemic? Research leaders across tech, academia and the government joined the White House to announce an open data set full of scientific literature on the coronavirus. The COVID-19 Open Research Dataset, known as CORD-19, will add new relevant research moving forward, compiling it into one centralized hub. The new data set is machine-readable, making it easily parsed for machine learning purposes.
