Training: Data Visualisation Training: Bringing Data to Life

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

Crown Commercial Service

Now with the flexible option to be delivered in a virtual online classroom and soon to return, face to face training.

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.

Key features:

  • Understand the importance of good visual storytelling
  • A clear set of techniques and best practice guidelines to take-away
  • Design and present graphs and charts to maximise their impact and memorability
  • Feel confident in interpreting and selecting the data that’s right for your audience
  • Understand the best software and programmes out there to bring your data to life
  • An interactive class with the opportunity to apply tools and techniques learned

Designed for:

This data visualisation course is for managers, data analysts and report writers who need to present data to others internally or externally, in order to demonstrate impact, show performance and communicate findings.  

Learning outcomes:

Participants of the data visualisation course will come away with the practical tools and techniques to deliver a step change in how they and their teams can report data through their presentations, written communication, management reports and meetings to maximise impact, engagement and understanding.

By working through real-life examples, participants will be able to go back to their organisations and apply their learning straight away.
