Following the creation of the recently announced Tokyo chapter, Analyst First is now truly Asia-Wide, with the addition of Singapore and Hong Kong Chapters, both headed by Brett Shadbolt, who has built an international empire with his company The Censere Group, formed over 10 years ago.
Censere now has offices across the Asia Paicific, in Auckland, Bangkok, Hong Kong, Kuala Lumpur, Beijing, Shanghai, Singapore, Sydney, Tokyo, the Maldives and Seoul.
Censere provides valuation services for mergers and acquisitions, as well as specialised assessment of human capital, strategic reviews and other advisory services for the most senior officers and boards of organisations.
We welcome Brett as a valuable addition to the growing international team.
About usAnalyst First is a new approach to analytics, where tools take a far less important place than the people who perform, manage, request and envision analytics, while analytics is seen as a non-repetitive, exploratory and creative process where the outcome is not known at the start, and only a fraction of efforts are expected to result in success. This is in contrast with a common perception of analytics as IT and process.
