Customer Success Manager, ESRI UK
Steve has worked in GI for 18 years. Firstly, as a student when completing a degree in GIS and Business Administration, then in Local Government and now the private sector. His roles have covered both the technical use of GI tools, analytics and data, as well as the commercial and contract side of software procurement, GI Strategy, and business development. Steve is passionate about geography and sees himself as an advocate for the power of GI and the transformational role it can have through GIS. He believes location can act as common framework on which to bring data together and turn it into actionable insight. He is also interested in the role that new data sources such as Sensed Data and Earth Observations can play in the industry and the converging worlds of data science, statistics and GIS, and the mutual benefits that exist for each of these communities.
