The Information Lab Celebrates Its Fifth Anniversary Sponsorship of Tableau's European Conference

The Information Lab

For the fifth year running The Information Lab will once again be sponsoring Tableau’s conference in Europe. The event, which attracts over a thousand data lovers & enthusiasts from across the globe, will be supported by both The Information Lab as a platinum sponsor and The Information Lab’s Data School which will also sponsor independently for the first time.

Helping People Make Sense of Data Across Europe

Tableau Conference is such a great event for all attendees to meet and learn from some of the brightest minds in the data community. As one of the first Tableau partners in Europe, and a leading gold partner today, we're thrilled to be able to support this event each and every year. And with this, our fifth anniversary sponsorship, I couldn't be more thrilled to also bring our Data School as an independent sponsor.

Tom Brown, Founder & Managing Director

Having started in the London, UK over seven years ago, The Information Lab now has established its presence across Europe with locally managed offices in France, Germany, The Netherlands, Ireland, Italy, and Luxembourg. The team in Paris, France has seen consistent growth since it was established in 2015. “Tableau is a fantastic product, and we can’t wait for TC Europe,” said Benjamin Long, Founding Director of The Information Lab France. “Tableau’s commitment to France, shown by the inclusion of a French track at the Conference this year, has allowed us to invest in growing the team for the long term, becoming one of their premier regional partners along the way.”

The Information Lab is committed to supplying the best consulting team possible to customers across Europe, and in return, our European teams are committed to supporting Tableau Conference Europe with more than 40 consultants & management in attendance.

The Data School at TC Europe

Back in 2015, The Information Lab noticed that while Tableau was growing at a fast pace the general availability of medium term, highly skilled resources to support existing data teams were not.

“Everyone needs resources to make an immediate impact. Recruiting and training people yourself will take time and resources.” Andy Kriebel, Head Coach of The Data School UK

Fast forward to today, and The Data School is about to recruit its 10th cohort of consultants ready to be trained to a high level and certified in both Tableau and Alteryx. Andy continues “The Data School resources are trained by the best users in the world and have been proven to make an immediate impact on the business while also helping implement a culture of analytics.” In fact, Data School customers will soon see increased availability of placements with cohorts of eight consultants available for hire every two months rather than four.

Finally, The Data School has also seen a global expansion this year, establishing a base in Sydney Australia enabling an existing global client base to be better served from more local offices.

With such huge developments in 2018 it only seemed natural for The Data School to sponsor its first Tableau Conference bringing both current and past consultants to TC Europe 2018. Reflecting on his time at The Data School helping clients Pablo Sáenz de Tejada, Data School alumnus and Information Lab Consultant, said “when you are teaching someone Tableau or Alteryx, and you told them how to do something that nowadays is taking them hours or days of work. Their face looking at you saying: “you have saved me hours of work!” is great. Both things are for me the best proof of how these tools can help people and companies in a tangible and differential way."
