This course has now taken place.

There is increasing pressure on public sector organisations to manage, process, and present large volumes of data. When presented in the right way, data can create impact and make a convincing case to key stakeholders.

This Designing Powerful Data Visualisations course gives you the knowledge to use a range of publicly available and free to use visualisation tools, such as Power BI, which will help you gain further insight and meaning from your datasets.

Through interactive workshops and the use of laptops, learn how to practice using digital visualisation tools on public sector related datasets.

Please can delegates bring their own laptops, with Power BI downloaded
