Description

I would like to thank MNP for hosting the CTUG meeting for November.

AGENDA

4:00-4:10 Welcome and CTUG Update - Networking session to follow meeting; snacks and refreshments will be provided. Thank you to our meeting sponsors, MNP and Tableau Software.

4:30-4:45 Presentation: Using Tableau for Good by Geoff Zakaib

Would you like to make the world a better place using data? Data for Good is a local group of volunteers that not only use data to make better decisions about what kind of movie they want to see, but what kind of world they want to see.

Inspired by DataKind.org, Data for Good is working for positive social action through "data in the service of humanity". It brings together leading data scientists with high impact social organizations through a comprehensive, collaborative approach that leads to shared insights, greater understanding, and positive action through "data in the service of humanity".

Geoff Zakaib will talk about Data for Good, the next Datathon happening on November 24-26 and how you can help by volunteering your Jedi Tableau skills, all while doing good and having fun!

4:45-5:10 Presentation: Industry benchmarking visualizations by Bryce Hodgkinson

Bryce will walk us through on how MNP is arranging confidential data to share insights without sharing identities.

Bryce Hodgkinson is a CPA and a Senior Analyst in MNP’s Financial Planning and Analytics group. Bryce spends hours every week deep in Tableau projects, and is currently focusing on strategy planning. When Bryce isn’t mixing data in Tableau he is an avid acroyogi and sings with Westwinds Music Society.

5:10-5:50 Hands-on exercise: Makeover Monday with Varisha Soochit

The Makeover Monday exercise is similar to the Makeover Monday series created by Tableau Zen Master Andy Kriebel and Tableau Expert Andy Cotgreave. We will have a chart that we will then rework. This exercise might find a new story in the data or tell the story more effectively. The goal of this exercise is to improve upon the original visualization and focus on the data. Bring you laptop and let’s put in practice data visualisation best practices

Varisha is a Financial Analyst in MNP’s Financial Planning and Analytics group. She is passionate about data analytics and data visualization. She assists MNP in leveraging data as an asset to derive actionable insights.

5:50-6:00 PM Wrap-up.

6:00 PM – Networking session to follow meeting; snacks and refreshments will be provided.
