Applications are open! Why you should apply today to speak at Tableau’s Virtual Events

With the decision to reimagine all of our in-person events as virtual events through the end of the year, we are excited to announce a new, simplified application process for speaking at upcoming Tableau events—introducing the Speaker Bureau Program!

Heard enough and want to apply now? This application is the best way to be considered for speaking opportunities at all your favorite Tableau events!

Share your Tableau story to inspire others

We understand that one of the most powerful ways to empower our customers is to make space for our community to share their successes and lessons learned—the good, the great, and the challenging! We know that the people who use Tableau every day have more powerful, creative solutions and applications for Tableau than we could dream up on our own. Highlighting these stories is a valuable way for your peers to learn something new to apply to their own business.

Why else would you be interested? Speaking about your experience helps you...

  • Establish your credentials among peers as a Tableau expert
  • Gain exposure with other leaders in your industry
  • Finesse your speaking skills with access to speaker coaching
  • Geek out on data (and let’s be honest—have fun doing it!)

Some helpful details

We’re looking for real-world stories about data challenges and innovative solutions using Tableau. Whether you’re a small, medium, or enterprise business, a non-profit or government entity, we encourage you to apply today!

Some topics we’re especially keen on:

  • Data culture
  • Enterprise-wide deployment
  • Tableau + Salesforce
  • Data for good
  • Diversity and inclusion

Products and use cases we’d love to hear about:

  • Tableau Online
  • Data Management Add-on
  • Server Management Add-on
  • Tableau Blueprint
  • Ask Data and natural language processing (NLP)
  • Embedded analytics

Next steps and the fine print

Upon receipt, our Customer Speaker team will review applications and align your use case and interests with upcoming speaking opportunities—everything from industry events and webinars to Tableau and Salesforce events across the globe! As additional opportunities arise (and they do often), the Customer Speaker team will reach out to guide you through the speaker process for each event. It’s that simple!

Frequently asked questions

How will I be notified if I am accepted to the Speaker Bureau?
Update: All applicants will receive an email from the Customer Speaker team in September letting them know the status of their application.

If accepted, what else do I need to do?
Nothing! We will nominate your story for opportunities that arise throughout the year and contact you if selected to speak.

Am I required to speak at the events I’m asked to?
Nope! We will reach out to you if we think you are a good fit for the event or opportunity, but you are not obligated to participate if you are not interested.

Are there examples of virtual events that I can reference?
Of course! Check out some of Tableau’s recent virtual events to get an idea of what the experience might be like and view on-demand content:

How long is my acceptance into the Speaker Bureau good for?
Your application will remain on file for one year to be considered for customer speaking opportunities as they come up.

I still have questions. Who can I talk to?
Please contact with any additional questions. We’re happy to help!

What if I need to rescind my application, once submitted?
No problem! Things happen. Please contact and let the team know.
