Greens Means Go
Bethany Lyons is always a favorite of mine. Her stuff is over my head but I like how she gets so super excited about this stuff. Her session on LOD calculations helped aid in my understanding of this relatively new calculation type.
While I had to leave Nelson Davis's session early, I love Nelson's stage presence combined with his smarts. He had some really good takeaways from his session. One of which is to be fanatical about understanding the point and purpose of every detail on your dashboard.
Keys from the Keynotes
The keynotes were really good this year. Dr. Tyson needs a 3 on his badge next year! I love how funny and informative he is. You just feel like he gets it. Dr. Hannah Frye was clever and presented some pretty good points and I loved Daniel Pink's talk. Two big takeaways for me:
- Go take your own genius hour
- Pay people fairly and pay them enough so they focus on the work
And from Dr. Tyson's keynote...
In addition to the great training, I love conference is because I get to see my tableau friends I've met at other conferences, meet Twitter friends, and expand my network.
And I'm super excited to see how I apply the takeaways and the energy this year.
