Please join us in giving the 2021 Tableau Ambassadors a great big DataFam welcome! We can’t wait to see how this group makes the community a better place. Learn more about the ambassadors by checking out their bios and following them on Twitter. Keep reading for a breakdown of the new ambassador class in the best way we know how: by the numbers.
What to know about this year’s class
We’re honored to welcome our biggest class of ambassadors ever. At 327 people, the 2021 Tableau Ambassador class represents a 93% increase from last year across all branches: Forum, User Group, Tableau Public, Social, Student, and DataDev Ambassadors.
We’re also excited to officially welcome a new branch, the Tableau CRM Ambassadors, to the class. These power users of the native analytics and AI solution for Salesforce love to share their expertise on the specialized platform and build bridges between the Salesforce Trailblazer community and the Tableau Community.
We asked this year’s ambassadors to fill out a survey to introduce you to these new faces, as well as the returning experts. Meet the 2021 Tableau Ambassador class, based on the 81% who responded …
This class is amazingly talented
Every year, we’re blown away by the level of talent in our ambassadors, and 2021 is no exception. Together, the survey respondents have more than 1,500 years of experience using Tableau, authored more than 260 Vizzes of the Day, and racked up 1,740,780 points on the community forums. Tableau certifications? They have those, too—more than 200.
They bring wide-ranging voices and experiences
Our survey revealed a wider range of voices in the ambassador program than ever before. This class represents 42 countries—up from 31 last year—speaking more than 55 languages. Twelve countries are even getting their first ambassador ever: Azerbaijan, Chile, Finland, Kenya, Mauritius, New Zealand, Norway, Pakistan, Poland, South Africa, South Korea, and Sweden.
They have wide-ranging backgrounds, too. The ambassadors represent every major industry. And while most are seasoned pros with many years of experience using the product, we’re welcoming 23 ambassadors with less than three years using Tableau (excluding Student Ambassadors). We're excited for these new perspectives to shape the future of the program and the Tableau Community.
Their passion for Tableau is unmistakable
All of the ambassadors are incredibly passionate about Tableau and the data community. In total, our survey respondents have attended Tableau Conference more than 611 times, regularly participated in more than 100 Tableau User Groups, and contributed to every single community project in the last year.
And they share their expertise across 116 blogs, 188 Twitter handles, and 38 YouTube channels. You can also check out their work on one of their Tableau Public profiles (216 in all), connect with them on the community forums, or attend one of the 80+ Tableau user groups they lead.
