I am on a mission to help data practitioners write less code and create more business outcomes. I host and produce the Discovering Data podcast, a show for data practitioners that want to lead with data. We share insights and best practices that help data and analytics leaders create more business outcomes.
👋  Hi I am Loris Marini, creator and host of Discovering Data.
Loris Marini Headshot

Most engineers have poor business literacy, and most business leaders poor data literacy. If we want to have real impact as data practitioners we need to broaden our skills beyond the technical domain and learn how to communicate effectively with a wide range of stakeholders.

In 2020 I used everything I knew about psychology and communication and launched the first multi-disciplinary podcast for practitioners that want to lead with data.

I sit with the best minds in the industry and leverage the power of conversations to find the most effective ways to collect share and use knowledge to create business value. I share insights across a range of subjects from executive presence and storytelling, business literacy, economics, data architecture, data engineering and more.

There has never been a better time to be in data, come and grow with us!

Mid-roll: memorable

Your message is read by the host near the halfway mark reaching our listeners when they are most receptive to new ideas

End-roll: action oriented

Your message is played towards the end of the episode when listeners are most likely to take action.

What people are saying...

One who really 'gets it'

Loris is one of a rare breed: he understand data , how it works, what its potential is , and brings into the conversation an engaging passion to always learn more. He challenged my thinking and freshened my own perspectives on data.
James Edwards

Lots of new ideas.

I am honored that Loris invited me to his top-rated show. I enjoyed our conversation very much. Data lineage is a complex topic. Loris was able to find out intelligible analogies to describe his understanding of this topic. Our conversation went beyond the original topic and generated a lot of new ideas.
