IN THE WORLD OF SOLVING HUMANITIES MOST PRESSING ISSUES, WE BELIEVE PEOPLE ARE THE SECRET SAUCE. They are an often underutilized resource of knowledge, skills, and experiences, just waiting to be accessed by the solution-seekers who need it most. Unlocking this untapped wealth of know-how and insight can be key in propelling an organization’s mission forward.

While nonprofits are rich in purpose, many lack funding or capacity necessary to uncover new solutions. Likewise, companies across industries are teeming with subject-matter experts but lack an avenue for connecting their army of knowledge-based volunteers with opportunities to advance the greater good.

Technology companies like Tableau are partnering with Revere Software to bring these worlds together. Revere's unique knowledge-sharing and flash-mentoring platform allows nonprofits like to instantly connect with a cadre of Tableau volunteers who are skilled in a range of data visualization best practices.

This webinar is geared towards nonprofit organizations, giving participants insights into:

  • Flash-mentoring
  • Expert & knowledge-seeker match-making
  • Data-driven insights & impact
  • Use-case exploring Tableau Service Corps and

Ryan Trude, Technology Operations Manager,

Originally from Pittsburgh, PA I moved to the north west in 2010 and landed in Seattle in late 2011. For the past three years I have had the pleasure of being a part of the Splash team. As the Technology Operations Manager I focus my efforts on managing Splash’s organization wide technology solutions, which includes leading our data visualization efforts. When not working, I enjoy spending time with my family, working in my woodshop, and playing in the great outdoors.

They are headquartered in Denver, CO.

About Tableau Service Corps—The Tableau Service Corps is a community of bright, dedicated individuals who want to help nonprofits make more of an impact through the use of their data. Comprised of Tableau employees, customers, and partners, the Tableau Service Corps provides free help with specific, contained projects that will make a nonprofit more successful. For nonprofits, you can expect to work with a dedicated and talented Tableau expert who will help you get started with Tableau, level up your existing Tableau visualizations, or build your team's confidence working with data each day - whatever will help your nonprofit the most. However, Tableau Service Corps members are volunteers - which is why we ask that you bring them specific, short-term projects to help with - after all, they have full day jobs!
