Two years ago we started Black Swan with a simple belief that data and technology can, and will change the way business is done.

Along the way we’ve been fortunate enough to have started a company which has attracted some very talented people, some fantastic forward looking clients and most importantly of all, some powerful examples of how data can really make a difference.

I hope that our new blog will serve as inspiration, sometimes provocation and potentially even raise a smile from time to time.

Nonsense and jargon abound in the world of data science. It’s confusing and unnecessary; we just know that helping companies make money and be more effective is probably a good thing for everyone. Our solutions are rooted in science, and we use some mighty fancy algorithms but ultimately we prefer plain speaking and to let our results speak for themselves.

Black Swan combines data science, technology and imagination to deliver exceptional results to companies. A complete dedication to using data to find transformation opportunities for businesses drives us. We hope you’ll find some of what we have to say interesting and hope you’ll be in touch to find out more.

Steve King has worked in tech & data science, man & boy. He puts it down to playing with an abacus from an early age in the depths of Wales, with precious else to do. Now he’s all grown up and as CEO spends his days leading our flagship accounts – zipping regularly from the UK to the US West Coast. He’s one of Black Swan’s founders, citing his sources of inspiration as Nate Silver, standing atop the Gower Peninsular and delivering game changing insights for his clients.
