Is your team trying to turn data assets into actionable insights?

Tableau, the market-leading data discovery and visualization tool, allows you to quickly connect to files and database tables, discover relationships, and securely publish dashboards and other visualizations. And the best part is that Tableau’s intuitive user interface and straightforward formula language make fun to learn and a pleasure to use. If you can learn Excel then you can learn Tableau.

We are excited to invite you to our first virtual event with Tableau expert and trainer Lukas Halim. No matter if you are the resident data guru in your business or just learning the ropes, please consider joining us for this comprehensive look at the Tableau Fundamentals.

With Lukas’s expert guidance you’ll create charts, custom calculations, geographic maps, dashboards and more. Join us and take your data skills to the next level.


Lukas earned his Masters in Analytics from NC State in 2013 and has eight years experience as a data scientist in the health insurance industry. Using tools such as SAS, Python, Tableau, and Teradata, he conducts analysis to improve healthcare affordability and customer engagement. Projects include pilot and retrospective analysis, predicting opioid overdose, and developing and prototyping methodology for measuring utilization management savings. He’s also a popular instructor on Udemy, where he’s taught Tableau to more than 70,000 students and professionals.


This government tailored training taking place over three consecutive business days is designed to help you develop the fundamental skills in bit size chunks; skills that will be directly applicable to your day-to-day business activities. The staggered approach enables you time to digest the information, put it into practice and return the following morning to pick up where you left off, with your new information still fresh in the memory. The final day will culminate in a personal project where you will demonstrate your newly acquired skills and develop your own stunning Tableau report. You can then share these dashboards with teams, business partners and publish them to the web.
