Presentation: A day in the life of an AI-BA (AI enabled Business Analyst) 

“Rise and shine, it’s AI time! As the sun peeks through my window, I dive into a day packed with AI-powered adventures. Armed with my coffee and my favourite quote, ‘The future is now,’ I kickstart my day in this fully enabled AI business and tech world. 

Morning rituals? Thanks to AI, my inbox is magically organised, emails drafted to suit my tone, meetings are scheduled, and my personalized insights are served on a silver platter. It’s like having Aladdin’s genie with you 24×7! 

Data analysis? Piece of cake! With AI crunching numbers faster than I can say ‘spreadsheet,’ I uncover insights that would make Sherlock Holmes jealous. And when it’s time to collaborate, my AI-powered assistant turns my data into wonderful charts with all the insights. 

Project tasks? Don’t even get me started! AI keeps my tasks on track, drafts content based on prompts, optimises resources, and makes collaboration a walk in the park. And let’s not forget about continuous learning—thanks to AI, I’m levelling up my skills faster than a character in a video game. 

As the day winds down, I reflect on my AI-powered feats, ready to impress any audience with tales of efficiency, and tonnes of time saved. In a world where AI rules, being a business analyst is more exciting than a roller-coaster ride. And I’m strapped in for the adventure of a lifetime!”
