Rooted in their Core Values, we strive to cultivate a culture of delight that permeates their community—a community bonded by a shared goal: to inspire delight. As we set forth on this enlightening journey, guided by the remarkable Shae Wang, we delve into the dynamic world of data science and its transformative influence on businesses.

Our journey commences with the introduction of Shae Wang, a trailblazer whose influence has been felt at Ripple and previously at Uber. Shae shares the captivating story of her current adventure in Hawaii and the unique opportunity that led her to Bali. The stage was set by several participants, including Sasja, Community Management Specialist; Arvi, Human Resources Expert; Lila, Digital Marketing Virtuoso; and Sajid, a third-year Student at Monash University Malaysia, introduce themselves, voicing their eagerness to glean insights from Shae, particularly in the realms of business development and sales strategies.

We embark on a quest to unravel the secrets of effective business meetings and the paramount importance of forging robust partnerships. The discussion delves into the significance of data-driven decision-making, not only in careers but also in life as a whole. Shae underscores the intriguing paradox that one can be data-driven in one aspect while less so in others, such as personal health. The conversation further explores projects like Jump Bike and the team’s relentless focus on improving unit economics. Shae also elucidates the importance of setting precise Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) and aligning them with overarching business objectives.

The next leg of our exploration takes us deeper into the realm of data science. Shae sheds light on the importance of identifying problems that data science can solve within the realms of product development and data analytics. She delves into the categorization of internship candidates into four segments—true positive, false positive, true negative, and false negative—based on the correlation between the recruitment process and actual performance. Strategies emerge for bridging the gap between recruitment data and performance metrics, ultimately enhancing HR’s decision-making through data analysis.

Our discussion progresses to the realm of precise feedback, a crucial element in data science and business development. Shae introduces us to the challenges faced while surveying new partner properties. Partners often provide less specific and cautious feedback. To address this, personal interviews become a necessity to gain direct insights from partners. One of the speakers shares a similar experience from a previous job, where acquiring sufficient and accurate survey data posed difficulties. To overcome this challenge, two solutions emerge: utilizing data science techniques to recover missing data and seeking alternative data sources, such as observing user behavior or gauging opinions on hypothetical product launches. For small companies, relying on data can be tricky due to limited data availability. However, the importance lies in data scientists making the most of what’s available today and raising awareness of the possibilities of data science methods so that others can understand and apply them effectively.

In our final leg of exploration, we witness data science in action, transforming data into actionable insights. It’s applied to analyze and process stored data, helping property owners enhance their revenue streams. Bukit Vista harnesses data science in various facets, from recruitment functions to event organization. Ripple, on the other hand, addresses the slow-paced international payment issue using blockchain technology. Data science plays a pivotal role in fostering developer communities within the crypto sphere. It aids in automating liquidity processes and assessing token values on the blockchain.

As we conclude our journey through the realms of data science, guided by Shae Wang, we find ourselves not only enlightened but also inspired. This masterclass is more than a collection of insights; it’s a portal into the future of data-driven decision-making. The path illuminated by data science is not just a route to success; it’s a journey that transforms businesses and redefines industries. As we navigate this data-driven frontier, we stand on the precipice of a future where insights inspire innovation, and data empowers us to achieve the extraordinary.
