Zanné van Wyk - Head Of Data And Analytics, Diocese Of Maitland

Zanné Van Wyk has 30 years of Data and Analytics experience with a particular interest in reimagining what’s possible with analytics and AI in Education. Her team utilizes the latest innovations in data and what’s possible with analytics and AI to accelerate their Data and Analytics (D&A) transformation agenda. Insights extracted from data collected across the student learning lifecycle are applied to develop predictive models to be used for targeted ‘interventions’ in time to make a difference, not months downstream of an issue.

The ability to understand what’s happening at the moment is more valuable than ever. And the ability to make confident decisions based on that understanding is essential for helping organisations adapt and thrive—even as circumstances change rapidly.

With an MSc from Sheffield Hallam University (SHU) in the UK with Mathematical Statistics, Advanced Analytics, and Data Science, she specialises in the development and implementation of comprehensive D&A Strategies focussing on Advanced Analytics and Data Science platforms.

Sheena Peeters General Manager, Technology, HESTA

Sheena Peeters is a technology executive with 20 years of experience in digital and innovative transformation. She is experienced in building strategy and architecture that creates value for organisations in digital, customer and employee experience. Sheena has driven transformation in Cloud, Devops and Automation, Multi-Channel Experiences, CRM, Service Management & Technology Operations, and Data as an Asset.

You may be surprised to learn that Sheena has built a startup and her own homes. So its safe to assume she sees herself as a builder. With a love for what she does and a real passion for building teams, building on ideas, challenging through innovation and expanding on what she knows, and what makes her uncomfortable. To drive real solutions and solve problems that improve the lives of people requires us to challenge the status quo, be innovative and fervently embrace the art of the hustle to harness what’s possible.
