Please welcome the 2020 Tableau Ambassadors!
Tableau Ambassadors are evangelists of our brand, our products, and our community. The mission of the Ambassador program is to recognize members of the community who connect, collaborate, and share with other people because they recognize the value of helping people see and understand their data.
After reviewing over 2,000 nominations and applications from our incredible community —which was a 168% increase over last year, we are both honored and delighted to announce new inductees into the Tableau Ambassador program!
With your help, we have selected a group of leaders—diverse in industry, background, and expertise—and have asked them to serve a one-year term (with the option for more). Over the next year, the 2020 ambassadors will be empowered with resources and direct access to our teams to help create, reimagine, or refine community programs and initiatives. The Tableau Ambassadors will receive our support to amplify their impact and keep the “pay it forward” spirit of the Tableau community alive. In return, we will provide fun perks, a complimentary license to Tableau Software, access to teams across Tableau like the development, eLearning, and marketing teams, and exclusive swag just for ambassadors.

Since 2015, the program has been shaped by all of the ambassadors who have dedicated their time, energy, and knowledge to improving and expanding the program year after year. And 2020 is no different! We’ve seen record interest and growth with this year’s group:
- The 2020 Ambassador group has increased in size by 62.5% from 2019, going from 104 members to 169.
- The total recorded applications/nominations started in 2019 was 1522. In 2020, we saw 3300, which is a 116.82% YOY increase.
- Not all applications are complete and able to be considered, so I looked at total unique candidates and found that in 2019, there were 410 unique candidates, compared to 1037 in 2020. This is a 152.93% increase.
