When I was asked to write a blog about “how I got to where I am today” I thought that maybe the intent was to have a quick summary of historical events followed by instant success, (e.g. “then I found Alteryx and my career really took off!”) In reality, it followed a more roundabout path.
During March 20th and 21st, Alteryx held their first Inspire APAC Conference on Tour in Sydney with over 800 people coming from all of APAC together to the international convention centre in Sydney to learn and share their experiences.
Prior to working in analytics, I was a secondary school teacher, so I’m much more familiar with preparingothers for exams than I am taking them myself. In fact, I’ve got a newfound respect for students everywhere taking exams: it’s not easy to know the best, most appropriate, and most efficient way to prepare and can sometimes feel quite intimidating.
For me, 2018 was the year of presenting at Alteryx Inspire(s) and it might surprise you that it was the first time that I stepped out of my comfort zone and got on stage in front of 300+ Alteryx enthusiasts in both Anaheim and London! I hope that over the next 5 minutes of you reading this I can inspire you to submit your demo tape, jump on stage, and rock out in front of hundreds of supportive Alteryx Inspire attendees at Inspire 2019 in Nashville.
In anticipation of our upcoming Women of Analytics panel luncheon at Inspire Europe 2018, I sat down with Alteryx co-founder and Chief Customer Officer, Olivia Duane Adams, for a chat about the Women of Analytics initiative here at Alteryx.
A lot has happened in the Community since the last highlights blog — we launched version 5.0, we released the first season of Road to Inspire, and most notably the Inspire conference came and went faster than we ever would have imagined.
For our third and final stop on the Road to Inspire, we headed out to Catalina Island to meet withDeborah Diesel and her son Wyatt. Deborah has been using Alteryx since 2016 and has benefitted from all the great resources available on the Community to learn Alteryx.
We made a second stop in Minnesota on our Road to Inspire, where we met with Tessa Enns and her daughter Zariah (and a special guest)! Tessa has been an Alteryx user for only six months and is thrilled about the possibilities the platform has opened up for her. Tune in to Episode Two to find out how Alteryx and her daughter have inspired Tessa!
As we celebrate the spirit of National Volunteer Week with our Alteryx for Good community this April, we want to take a moment and reflect on the wonderful activities our associates and customers participated in last year and recognize the difference you’re making.
I've never worked for a company that paid me to take time off to volunteer and it has to be, hands down, myfavoriteperk at Alteryx. Through the Alteryx for Good (AFG) program, our associates are given 20 hours a year to volunteer and give back to a cause that we feel passionate about. How cool is that?!
