Coaching in Google Analytics for Mobilisation Lab

Improving digital analytics capacity of offices around the world via webinar.

The Mobilisation Lab at Greenpeace is an ambitious experiment in changing the way people work to change the world. In their own words, it exists to provide Greenpeace and its allies “a dynamic, forward-looking space to envision, test, and roll out creative new means of inspiring larger networks of leaders and people around the world to break through and win on threats to people and the planet.”

It’s a project that aims to test and share innovations in the world of people powered campaigning, mobilizing public support to make positive change. Data Habits helped the Mobilisation Lab with one part of their mandate, supporting 60 Greenpeace web marketers and technical staff around the world with training sessions and ongoing coaching to improve their use of digital analytics.


The Mobilisation Lab at Greenpeace, like most organizations seeking to increase online effectiveness, is working to help the entire organization become more informed by data in its decision making. With millions of supporters, offices in 40 countries and a fast-paced culture of campaigning, Greenpeace needed to have a good understanding of how their online efforts were supporting their most important goals.

Facility with digital analytics was mixed across the 40 regional offices – while there were analytics superstars in some regions doing advanced segmentation, analysis and experimentation, other offices were only beginning to use analytics to gain insights into their work.


Working closely with the Mobilisation Lab over six months, Eric delivered consulting and coaching sessions to improve the use of digital analytics in decision making to Greenpeace offices around the world.
