Speaker Profile

Jon Thompson is co-founder and Senior Partner at Blue Margin Inc.

An author and speaker, Jon sheds light on how businesses can take advantage of a revolution in business intelligence to become data-driven and accelerate their success. By employing the tactics of The Dashboard Effect (the title of his book), companies can become data-driven by increasing shared accountability through the organization and improving focus on the value-creation strategy.
