When the Community Centre decided to undertake a survey they were delighted to obtain some professional help in analysing the results from Dale Lord who runs a marketing company called Cherry Clever.
Dale specialises in Data Science and Analytics and was able to interrogate the numbers in a very professional manner, far beyond the competence of the Committee members. He had offered his service through a programme run by Chester Voluntary Action called SkillShare, where a range of professionals offer their services free to the voluntary and community sector.
At a Wine Tasting at Marks and Spencer the other evening, Brian and I were delighted to be joined at the table by a very personable young man who turned out to be none other than Dale Lord! It was such an unexpected pleasure to meet the person who had done so much work for us and to be able to thank him personally.
Of course, the conversation, helped along by a number of excellent wines, focussed entirely on statistical matters — just what you would expect from hardworking Committee members!
If there are any other groups in the village that feel they could benefit from this service do go onto the website www.chesterva.org.uk or call them on 01244 323527. For the professional services of Dale's firm go to www.cherryclever.co.uk
