Data. Our ability to gather mountains of the stuff has been a game changer for business. But data alone is not intelligence. Uncovering those insights requires the skill of a professional problem solver and interrogator of information. Someone like our Business Intelligence Expert, John Forbes.

Having recently joined the 460degrees team, John brings with him a full toolkit of analytical and system development skills, honed through roles within the health, medical, engineering and pharmaceutical sectors. But if you ask him, he’s not nearly done; his biggest career goal is to keep learning the latest software and techniques so he can apply them when developing new systems.

For John, a great day at the office means going upstream to find the real cause of problems before they have the chance to grow up into bigger ones. With the true culprit unmasked, he then helps clients form a plan to stop them re-offending. Put simply, he provides people with the right tools to help them do their job or run their business better.

Outside work, John keeps active and enjoys watching sports – particularly AFL (Go Magpies!), basketball and cricket. To unwind he loves listening to music or losing himself in a good book.
