In this episode of the Smart Community Podcast, I have a brilliant chat with Elisa Choy, an economist and data strategist and the Founder of Maven Data. We talk about Elisa’s background in data and strategy and her passion for making better decisions with data, as well as why it’s important to the Smart Community space. Elisa tells us what Maven Data does and shares some really interesting examples of some of their research and insights, such as around the COVID vaccine in Australia, racism in Australia, and also wellness trends globally. We talk about the way data can help us predict trends and behaviour change, and what local governments can learn from the insights from Maven Data, as well as bringing traditional research methods, new market data insights and key stakeholders together to have better conversations. We finish our chat discussing the emerging trends of questioning existing systems and challenging the status quo, particularly with regards to the rise of women’s voices, and diversity and discrimination in general. For a little bit of context, we recorded this episode on the 5th March 2021 shortly before the Women’s March4Change here in Australia on the 15th March, and you will hear Elisa share how her insights had been predicting the rise of the female roar. As always we hope you enjoy listening to this episode as much as we enjoyed making it.
