A Curious Life, hosted by Hadley Christoffels, is a show where we go ‘behind-the-scenes’ with interesting folk from all across the data ecosystem. It is a series of chilled out campfire-like discussions where we explore how the trait of curiosity has impacted their lives and careers. Hadley has spent the last 2 decades helping businesses extract value from data. As a self-professed lover of “all things D”, he enjoys learning about new technologies, people and ways of thinking. And how that gets us one step closer to scaling the value gained from using data to inform better and faster decisions. As a husband and father first, his hope is that the innovative use of data will have a positive impact on future generations in both Enterprise and Society at large. http://www.acuriouslife.ai
