I had a need to analyze some market research that was beyond my Tableau capabilities (it turns out this is actually quite a hard analysis). Colin helped to structure the analysis and set up the Tableau workbooks and created many charts that I was able to show to the client with little additional work. He also gave me some tips on using Tableau myself. I was very happy with the work and definitely plan to work with Colin again.
Colin has done an excellent job at translating our complicated reporting requirements into an easy to use, insightful collection of dashboards. We tasked Colin with pulling together multiple sources of marketing, sales and customer data to create automated KPI calculations such as Conversion Rates, Lead to Sale Rates etc. and most importantly ROI. It has certainly been a journey with a considerable amount of testing and fine tuning but I can’t fault Colin in terms of his patience and willingness to make amends. We will certainly be working with Colin more in the future.
Working with Colin was great. He understands data and Tableau very well. We worked on health IT Likert scores, and he managed the somewhat ‘messy’ data very well. He was utterly patient. He understands how to get insights from data and goes to great lengths to make sure my perspective was taken into account. I have ended up with a great slide deck of data visualisations.
I’ve worked with Colin on a number of projects. His expertise in data visualisation has been invaluable. Organised, communicative and just easy to work with.
It was a pleasure working with Colin on this project. There was a real sense of co-creation as we worked closely to refine and shape the product to our requirements. Throughout the process, Colin was very responsive to any changes or suggestions. He had a “can-do” approach to any potential challenges and the ability to deliver. Communications and updates on progress were regular and helpful. 100% recommend.
Colin has wide ranging industry experience as an analyst, researcher and most importantly for our project, as a Tableau developer. This was invaluable as he was thus able to quickly grasp our industry nuances and how his work fit into the larger picture.
Really knowledgeable and delivered a great session that will help us improve our questionnaire design and data viz.
Colin was organised, proactive and flexible, and the outcome of this approach means we have not only delivery of the dashboards, but have undergone with Datawoj a rich process of learning through joint problem-solving – and we are delighted with the result.
We have come away from the survey part of the project with minimal fuss and some very valuable insights to carry us forward into next stage.

Appropriate questions lead to an effective survey which provides accurate customer insights. Easy to complete questionnaires lead to higher response rates.
Data visualisations often need to answer multiple business questions. Engaging with stakeholders leads to an understanding of what they would like to see and know.
Market research is essential for understanding what your customer’s needs are and how you can tailor your product or service to meet them. Online surveys are a cost effective method to engage with your target audience. However, the reports automatically generated by online survey tools may not always meet your needs.
Diverging away from the use of colour to focus on most recent day also meant I could tell a different story. An important consideration when telling a story with data.
How we design our charts influences our audience’s understanding. It is important to aim for consistency in dashboard design. However, we cannot assume that just because we have been consistent in our designs. That our audience will be consistent in their understanding. An important consideration for data literacy.
How do we make insights from sales dashboards stand out?
Colour is a powerful tool to enhance dashboard design.
It can be used to align to brands, show patterns, highlight performance and focus attention.
