This course has now taken place.

The public sector has to manage a greater volume of data than they have ever had to before.

Globally, we create 2.5 quintillion bytes of data a day and 90% of the world’s data has been created in the last two years.

There is pressure to harness this resource, whether to improve efficiency or increase transparency. When presented in the right way, data can be a powerful way to communicate effectively with internal stakeholders and external audiences.

This Effective Data Visualisation course gives you the necessary skills to visualise your data and to turn raw data into infographics, presentation slides, dashboards or reports that tell a clear story and drive the right actions.

NB: Delegates who attend the day will be asked to bring their own laptops.
