Data Visualisation Training: Bringing Data to Life

"The trainers presentation was excellent, this was a great course for my self-development."

Crown Commercial Service

We live in an age where it is ever more important for organisations to make sense of the increasing amounts of data they are generating. and use this to underpin effective decision-making. 

We know that our brains process visuals 60,000 times faster than numbers or words. An ability to effectively bring this data to life visually will, therefore, transform its meaning, impact and ability to engage others.

The data visualisation training course will show you how to move beyond dry data and use visuals and story to create compelling presentations and reports that will resonate with your audience and bring your data to life.

Whether you are a project manager who needs to update on progress and resourcing needs a data analyst who needs to communicate to non-specialists or a manager who needs to provide clear and compelling strategy and direction, this data visualisation course will help you understand how to translate seemingly dry data into visuals and compelling arguments that will inspire and inform your audience and deliver the impact you seek.

Data Visualisation Training: Bringing Data to Life is from our Information, Digital & Data Management series. At the Civil Service College, we tailor our courses to each attendee’s role and organisation, ensuring that each partcipant gets the most out of the training. Our courses and trainers are continuously updated and evaluated to ensure that we are always delivering the best service possible.
