Sam Batchelor

Senior Consultant, Key Data Consulting
Bachelor of Engineering (Engineering Science)


Sam brings a passion for best practice data analytics and visualisation to Key Data. She enjoys taking people on a journey to gain trust in their data, move the work from processing to analysis, and ensure that the stories hidden within the data get told.

She recently migrated to Brisbane from Auckland, NZ where she worked at global dairy giant Fonterra. During this time, Sam gained valuable experience within Tableau – both from a workbook development and Tableau Server perspective. She helped to enable a community of users and consumers to utilise the data and tools available to make critical business decisions.

Sam was also part of a BI project within the London 2012 Olympic Games, working with data to ensure that the social and economic benefits of the games were realised.
