Could you clarify your question please ?
Specifically these bits - 'Not everyone in my professional group is from my same company' and 'we obviously cannot grant access to member outside the company'
You also appear to be ruling out Tableau Reader, although this is an easy install. By 'limited tech skills' are you referring to 'other organisations corporate security settings not allowing them to install products' by any chance ? - more info needed.
I'm thinking Tableau Server though. We have a number of setups through our Public server, such as public view enabled, access with passwords, access without passwords, downloadable, not downloadable etc to suit the different variations of access we need to provide our users which includes internal staff.
If the data is not sensitive information use the tableau public and publish the visualization. Every one can access you can control even if they can download the work book or not?
