Dmitri Adler
We worked together  •  Data Society Founder. Creating an E-learning and networking platform for Data Scientists and Data Analysts everywhere
Amanda has made the difference in my new business. Amanda has deep domain expertise and broad industry experience, which help her make just ... the right recommendations to implement solutions in the market. Her advise is always insightful and practical whether you are making a decision on product positioning, community building or customer outreach. She is comfortable in all modes of customer engagement whether digital or in-person. I highly recommend her to anyone who needs to build a client base.

We worked together  •  Data Society Founder. Creating an E-learning and networking platform for Data Scientists and Data Analysts everywhere
Dmitri has a rare skill set. He has an ideal combination of hard-core analytical skills, financial background, and business intelligence tha ... t a lot of founders simply lack--you can trust his business decisions. Deep down, he understands that a consumer-facing business has to be built around the consumers, and he has the empathy to make that a standard throughout the company. He knows his limits, asks for and takes advice, and admits when he is wrong. He's also fun to work with, which matters when you work as late as you will when you work with Dmitri. I've worked with very and not-so successful startups, and I would sign on to any project Dmitri proposed in a heartbeat.
