Title: Let me give you some (statistical) advice
Practising statisticians are likely to spend at least some of their time engaging in statistical advising. This activity could take one of many forms, from one-off consultations with students undertaking their first research project to long-term collaborations in which the statistician is a full member of a wider research team. Although we spend some of our time engaging in this activity, in my experience it is rarely discussed. I recently spent two days discussing it at ADVICE|2018, the first international conference on statistical advising. Themes included the relationship between research, teaching and advising; whether there is a best practice for statistical advising; how to organise a statistical advising service; how to measure the impact of advice; and how to train the next generation of advisors. I will share perspectives from the conference and hopefully stimulate discussion of their relevance for statistical advising in Manchester.
