Last week I was fortunate enough to be invited by the Royal Institute to attend not only their Masterclass taster evening for anyone interested in STEM outreach. As I’m lucky enough to give a class in Bayesian Belief Networks, I was asked to go along and mingle and generally encourage others to start helping, volunteering,…Details
Sophie founded Bays Consulting in 2009 to share her enthusiasm that analysis is both fun and provides clarity. With in-depth experience of analytical, statistical and problem structuring techniques, Sophie supports clients by developing pragmatic and robust solutions.
Stating out with a Bachelors degree in Aeronautical Engineering and a Masters in Applied Mathematics, Sophie gained momentum whilst working full time in the public sector by studying part time for a doctorate. It took eight years of combining work with study, but Sophie now holds a Phd in Bayesian Belief Networks (link to thesis: Read it here)
Combining her maths and engineering skills has seen Sophie: facilitate workshops, support strategic planning programmes, develop weather response models; provide technical review and validation of statistical model; determine the probability of observing matching patterns within a large messy data set and develop methodologies to combine errors across multistage processes.
When not analysing data and providing insights to clients, Sophie likes a bit of a challenge – which range from making perfect gluten free bread to training for a triathlon. Spare time is rarely spent idly.

Not so long ago I was fortunate enough to trial “no e-mail Friday” for the Institute of Directors. It had the immediate effect that it gave me time to focus on areas of the business which need thinking time, and also to just get work done without being disturbed. No e-mail Friday is still a…Details
The first half of the year has disappeared in a flash and at times it’s felt as though I’ve been pushing jelly up a hill with chopsticks. There have been times when I’ve been deeply frustrated, and all I’ve seen to have had to show for my effort is proverbial bits of jelly scattered in…Details
