The session went much better than I expected. I did not know that my sectoral knowledge was so lacking. I learned a lot in half an hour. And Seçkin left no question marks and informed me about everything I wanted to learn. Amazing mentorship session, looking forward to connecting again.

It was a great conversation. It was really helpful to hear from other Data expert his experience and to see that we are not that far on the way of thinking and implementing a Data Team. I really enjoyed the conversation and the insights and advice provided. About feedback, maybe just at the end give a summary of points you consider would be useful for the person you are talking to, but since we talked about them during our conversation, I think this would have a stronger closing.

His domain knowledge in data and data science and knowing the personas that we target is absolutely invaluable. He helped me in thinking through our product market fit and finding our ICP. I would love to learn more from him.

Very helpful session! Specifically, I liked the idea of using metrics and KPIs to monitor progress in the problem at hand (I was aware of these but didn't know how to set them up from scratch). Also, the pointers regarding variety and segment groups were very poignant and relevant to the overarching strategy I've been working on. I liked the analytics aspect of the whole marketing plan, something not many marketing professionals dwell on. The specific examples of successful professionals related to my project were also very useful as it makes the whole thing more tangible. I'd highly recommend Seçkin for any marketing-related matters, especially if you are fond of analytics and technology.

23.June 2022

The session was beyond my expectation. Most of the questions that I have prepared were answered by him before I even ask. Seçkin is a kind and knowledgeable mentor who is keen to give more than what you expect. He has instructed me thoroughly about long term steps to be taken in order to be a true data scientist as well. There should be no hesitation to schedule a session with him, in case one is interested in data science.
