BOBI Analyst / Analyst Team of the Year

November 15th, 2021

The 2022 Analyst and Analyst Team of the Year competitions are virtual, ONE-DAY events, which will take place on Wednesday 23rd March, 2022

The one-day event format means that you only need to commit a single day to your report development yet still have a chance for all the glory of winning the Analyst or Analyst Team of the Year.  

These competitions allow you to apply your skills to a realistic case-study based challenge, turning complex datasets into an interactive, engaging report. Simply complete an entry form by the February deadline (see bottom of this page for full timelines) and we'll contact you with more details closer to the event.

The data sets you will be working with will require no cleaning or matching, to ensure you can focus on delivering a great report that both tells the story and engages the viewer in ways that make them want to explore for themselves. Entrants will provided with the necessary datasets, and will attend a video briefing, following which you’ll  be free to work on your report prior to submitting it for judging the next morning.

Once again there will be separate, specially tailored competitions for teams vs. solo analysts, so you’ll need to decide which one you want to enter.

To inspire you, here are our 2021 winners reacting to their success:

Kate Stevens, KES Consultancy, won Analyst of the Year, whilst Analyst Team of the Year was won by a team from Purdie Pascoe and The Stats People.
