Darpan Bajaj, Consultant @ Deloitte
Darpan Bajaj is a Consultant at Deloitte where he uses Tableau to create business dashboards and outside of work to create YouTube content. In 2020, to gain a better understanding of Tableau, Darpan completed courses from Udemy and utilized content on YouTube created by the Tableau Community. Soon after he began, he also completed the Tableau Desktop Specialist certification.
On YouTube, Darpan has an audience of more than 2,000 subscribers keeping up with his Tableau tutorials and helpful tips. He recalls spending a lot of time looking for tutorials and answers when he was early in his Tableau journey so he created his YouTube channel with the intent of establishing a single place where beginners can find the answers to all their questions. Through his YouTube channel, he hopes to be able to share his knowledge and make the learning process easier for others.
