Gbóláhàn Adébáyò, Data Visualization Developer at MAGNiTT
Lagos, Nigeria

Gbóláhàn Adébáyò is a Data Visualization Developer at MAGNiTT. When completing his first Data Analytics certification, Gbóláhàn stumbled upon Tableau Public and was inspired by the amount of amazing content that was available. Following that, he began taking courses focused on Tableau to understand the tool and how it could be used as a business intelligence tool, however found that connecting with the community was far more valuable to his learning journey. Gbóláhàn is now involved in community projects, several Tableau User Groups, and the community forums, and publishes content on Tableau Public. He was also chosen as the winner of the “Newbie of the Year” Vizzies award at Tableau Conference 2023. 

Along with his involvement in the Tableau community, Gbóláhàn is working to get more people involved in the Tableau Community. He volunteers with several data analytics and visualization cohort programs for women trying to enter the data analytics space. He also uses social media platforms, such as Linkedin and X, and the Tableau Community Forums to answer questions and engage with people looking to improve their Tableau skills. 

Gbóláhàn aims to get more people from the Nigerian community involved in User Groups and community projects, and be a reference point for the #DataFam in Nigeria by keeping them motivated and finding ways to amplify opportunities in the Tableau community.
