Time: 1:00 PM
Location: Room 213, Richard Berry Building (Maths & Stats) University of Melbourne

Abstract: Mathematicians believe in the power of their discipline
to deliver real business benefits yet mathematics still
struggles to find its place in the business improvement
arsenal where other less ‘scientific’ approaches have
flourished. This presentation will focus on how
mathematics can be sold to business people, properly
applied and how we can all be better commercial
mathematics evangelists.
