ABSTRACT:  This talk presents aspects of the work of a statistical consultant. As a crash course, the focus is on topics that are not usually formally taught in university. These include data collection, data cleaning, visualizations, formulating questions and how to create a narrative from data analysis. Illustrative examples from government, industry and academic problems will be discussed.
