“Steve’s Dashboard class is the single best data training I’ve been to hands down! And I’ve been to Edward Tufte’s workshop. If you want to hit work the NEXT DAY with actionable learnings and enthusiasm, this is an incredible resource”

Zach Bowders, Sr Data Analyst, ALSAC St. Jude Children's Research Hospital

This was genuinely one of the best workshops I’ve attended. Steve balanced his instruction with relevant and engaging examples and group exercises.  Steve is clearly an expert at his craft, but he made those of us who are new to creating visualizations and dashboards feel comfortable. His follow up post-training has been phenomenal. His passion to educate the world on data visualization and to be of service to his audience is inspiring.
