Ayoade Abel Adegbite, Consultant Data Analyst, Tutor
Ayoade Abel Adegbite is a Consultant Data Analyst and tutor. He leverages Tableau to create effective storytelling, trend identification, and decision-making for his clients and students. Ayoade is part of the Ibadan Tableau User Group, is active on Tableau Public and the Tableau Forums, and has his own YouTube channel.
The wealth of knowledge that comes from the Tableau Community, and specifically Tableau User Groups, has been an important part of Ayoade’s learning journey. Engaging with User Groups has allowed him to expand his perspective on the diverse applications of Tableau and further his own insights. Ayoade created a local TUG in Nigeria earlier this year, the Ibadan User Group, which welcomed over 75 Tableau users at their inaugural meeting in August.
In addition to his involvement in the Tableau Community, Ayoade also has his own YouTube channel. He creates content for aspiring data analysts, students, professionals, and anyone interested in learning about data analysis. He was inspired to begin his channel because of his own passion for data visualization, the desire to provide educational content beyond traditional settings, the opportunity to address specific learning needs, and the goal to engage with a global community interested in data analysis and Tableau.
