My name is Rob Davis and I am super-excited that you’re here!
In addition to Tableau, I also teach courses in two distinct Business areas: SAP Business Intelligence, and Business Objects. I want you to be confident that I can deliver the best training there is, so below is some of my background in these fields.

I’ve witnessed the analytic paradigm shift first hand and can’t wait to teach you about how revolutionary Tableau is to every industry.
From my courses you will straight away notice how I combine my real-life experience and academic background to deliver professional step-by-step coaching in the space of Tableau. I am also passionate about helping others and love to see each and every one of my students succeed.
To sum up, I am absolutely and utterly passionate about Business Intelligence Analytics and I am looking forward to sharing my passion and knowledge with you!
