Clare Fox

As a History of Art graduate, Clare understands the impact and immediacy of using visuals to communicate and observed the power of data storytelling whilst working in the arts and cultural sector.

Later, after stumbling upon Tableau online, she discovered that data visualisation and analysis combined her innate curiosity and eye for design. Passionate about data democratisation, Clare is looking forward to helping organisations to understand and utilise their data.

Outside of work, Clare can be found visiting art museums and galleries and trying all the fitness classes London has to offer.
