About The Course Author

A black and white head and shoulders profile photo.

With decades of experience in data analytics and visualisation I've trained thousands of Tableau users across a wide variety of organisations and industries to get the most out of and maximise their investment in business intelligence tools.

I set up the Tableau Academy to share the expertise, tips and tricks I've learned across hundreds of projects and to provide a self paced learning pathway for Tableau that empowers you to learn at your own pace and get real, practical experience of developing a wide variety of solutions in Tableau and to be able to demonstrate your knowledge and skills.

I'm passionate about helping everyone develop data and analysis skills which are crucial in todays environment and sharing my knowledge and expertise gained from many roles from a junior analyst all they to way developing and implementing business intelligence strategies from scratch.

I also share news, inspiration and tips in tricks in my semi regular Tableau Tea Break newsletter, and also share global Tableau job opportunities over at Tableau Jobs.

I'd recommend it to anyone and have encouraged all of my colleagues to sign up too!"
