Coaching a large union research team to transform its reporting using Tableau

Colin’s help has been indispensable. He has provided us with a wide range of advice and training – not just in data visualisation, where he excels, but also in data prep and modelling. He has helped us unlock the potential of Tableau Prep, build robust relational databases in Tableau, and transition from using unpivoted data in Excel to pivoted (i.e. columns to rows) data in Tableau. 

Supporting a research agency to understand the digital experiences of older care residents

Colin is more than a data analyst – his work helps to tell an impact story.  Colin provided quantitative expertise to help us make sense of baseline and endline survey data.  Colin understood the evaluation methodology and supported us as evaluators to tell the best story using the available data.  Our quantitative data was triangulated with qualitative data and Colin was instrumental in this triangulation process.  Colin was an excellent communicator throughout the project, offering different options for presenting the data.

Supporting a training organisation to develop a “Tableau on Tap” course

I really enjoyed working with Colin. In this project we brainstormed ideas to set the framework together and Colin then worked independently to fill in the majority of the gaps. This provided a decent quality draft to review and Colin then enhanced the deliverables based upon our discussions and delivered some fantastic results for the Tableau Training on Tap material. Indeed the feedback from our training delegates has been really supportive of the work that Colin has produced for us. I recommend Colin to anyone wanting to help improve teams capabilities to deliver insights using Tableau.

Supporting Market Research Analysis in Tableau

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.

Saving a Content Marketing Agency Time to Visualise Return on Investment

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.

Supporting an Academic to Understand Practitioner Opinion of Health UX

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.
