Tableau is excited to bring our third annual European Tableau Customer Conference to London this June. The conference will be packed with great speakers, hands-on training and networking opportunities, but our customers consistently tell us some of their favorite sessions are the customer speaking sessions. This year will be no exception, as we have a fantastic line-up of Tableau customers who will present sessions on how their teams and their companies are leveraging the power of Tableau.
Read on to learn more about some of our great customer speakers. We'll be announcing the rest of the list next week in part 2.
