Carl Allchin was a customer of The Information Lab before he decided to come and join the team. After 4 years of consulting, Carl is now the Head Coach of the Data School in the UK.
Nearly a decade working for financial services companies, Carl found himself focusing more and more on empowering others to help pair their own subject matter expertise with data. By leading the team of coaches and trainers at the Data School, he’s helping hundreds of people to develop careers in data.
His teaching goes beyond The Data School classroom as he founded and runs the weekly Preppin’ Data exercises to allow people to learn how to prepare their data for analysis. He’s written Tableau Prep: Up & Running, taught new people to the field how to Communicate with Data and leaders of organisations about the importance of being Data Curious.
Carl’s been recognised as a Tableau Ambassador since the program began and a Tableau Visionary for the last four years.
For fun, Carl loves watching and playing basketball or exploring the world on a bike.
