The OECD* recently predicted US economic growth at 6.5%*, 3 basis points higher than their previous estimate just 3 months ago. If the post-pandemic recovery is on fast-forward, are your business initiatives prioritized and ready to go?

During the session Cloudera will share some of the innovations introduced in the areas of customer experience, risk and exposure management using data analytics and machine learning. Together we’ll explore opportunities and priorities going forward to maintain momentum in our digitally accelerated worlds including topics such as data privacy/security, fraud prevention, and how to leverage cloud to support strategic initiatives.


Richard Beeson, Whisk(e)y Ambassador

Richard has built a reputation as a spirits and beer expert in the restaurant and distribution industry over the past fifteen years. He has been involved in importing both Irish whiskey and Scotch whisky and expanding distribution of Kentucky Bourbon whiskey in the Northeast region. He started his career tending bar in the pubs of the Boston area and worked to cultivate a dedicated whisk(e)y selection and following as he has moved from the restaurant industry to distribution.

Our host, Irish Whisk(e)y & Beer Specialist, Richard Beeson, will be your guide through the flavor profile of the whisk(e)y selection chosen for this event. The selected whisk(e)y will be shipped to your house prior to the event.

Richard Beeson, has traveled to Ireland, Mexico, Germany, and throughout the US to study distillation and brewing. After making the switch from the restaurant industry to the distribution world in 2013, Richard worked with the new wave of Irish craft distillers to break into the US market, as well as Scotch whisky importers with unique bottlings, and small to large US distilleries looking to capitalize on what became a global boom.

In 2017 he opened his own small whisk(e)y pub in his hometown of Lowell, Massachusetts. The Keep boasts one of the largest and most diverse selections of whisk(e)y in the state. You can find Richard there most nights, finicking over new bottles and searching for the next interesting dram of what is known as “the water of life”.
