About the workshop

The aim of this workshop is to share and discuss the some key principles for effective data visualisation and to inspire you to start to tell better stories with your data.

Creating effective data visualisations is no longer a task for highly technical specialists and design professionals. In the modern workplace, we are all responsible for the data that we produce and learning how to effectively communicate with this data can be an invaluable asset.

Learning the fundamental principles behind good data visualisation can:.

  • Simplify the process of presenting data in tables and graphs.
  • Help those working with data to engage, captivate and influence their audience.
  • Ensure that the story being presented can be easily understood.
  • Allow decision-maker to get answers more quickly.

The workshop is aimed at anyone who works with data as part of their role. From administrators, analysts and accountants to researchers, teachers and senior managers, we can all benefit from learning the theory behind creating great graphics.

Learning Objectives

By the end of the workshop, delegates will be able to:

  • Critically review a data visualisation and understand what makes one example more effective than another.

  • Identify and utilise the key components within graphical representations of data.
  • Select the type of graph which best communicates the different relationships that exist within data.
