MeasureCamp Sydney is coming up this weekend and we are excited and ready to go! Besides the great talks we’ll be listening to and presenting, we’re looking forward to giving away some free books as part of our library scheme to MeasureCamp Sydney attendees. Stop by our sponsor stand to pick one of the great books on data we’re giving away.
In Marketing We Trust Library Scheme
The In Marketing We Trust library scheme works like this: We give you a free book, after you’ve read it, you pass it on to a colleague or another data pro so the learning can continue. Simple!
We know that the world of data is fast-paced and always changing. We want to support data professionals in their continuous learning journey. That’s why we’re excited to offer you a book as part of our free library scheme.
But here’s the catch – we don’t want this book to collect dust on your shelf. No way! We want it to make its way around to as many data pros as possible. So when you’re done, pass it on to a colleague (or even a stranger!) and make their day. And don’t forget to leave your mark – add your name and a note for the next reader.
