On the 16 January 2019, the London HR and People Analytics meetup community met at Runway East to eat pizza, have a drink and a chat - but also to hear from three speakers: Kevin Metherell (People Analytics Innovation Lead @ Experian), Andrea Schirru (People Analyst @ GSK) and Dr Stylianos Kampakis (Stelios) (Sports and Social Media Data Scientist @ Brandtix).
The aim of our meetups is simple: to bring together a community diverse data experts (HR and non-HR alike), to share and inspire innovation from the grassroots HR and People analytics community in London. All recordings are available for free on the HR Analytics ThinkTank platform.
What is ONA? Practical examples of Organisational Network Analyses at Experian
ONA has been a hot topic for a while now, and everyone is familiar with the pretty visuals associated with it. In this presentation, we asked Kevin Metherell to give a short and practical talk on ONA, sharing how Experian are really using it to make decisions, and (at least from my Q&A) to articulate what the data sets really look like.
Some of the key highlights:

Measuring Potential, Performance and Social Media Commercial Success for Sports Stars
The final speaker of the evening was Dr Stylianos "Stelios" Kampakis, a specialist in Sports and Social Media data science. We asked Stylianos to share some stories from his industry, in case it inspired us to think about HR analytics differently.
Stylianos gave an engaging and detailed talk, but for me, here were a few of the highlights:
