Deliver Data Visualizations clearly, effectively and impactfully!

This course, to be conducted over 2 days, is designed to be both basic and yet essential for participants in today’s data-focused workplace. As most organizations, private and public, are beginning to appreciate the tangible benefits of analyzed data, it still requires employees to present such processed data to key stakeholders for informed decision-making.

As such, usually such employees, who may come from business intelligence or organizational / community analyst, or anyone with a stake inside the organization, increasingly need to communicate as effectively with visualizations as they may be currently doing with their verbal and written communication skills.

The first day explores how data visualizations are becoming a key competency for employees and organizations alike as insights can no longer be derived from rows and columns. The second day will enable participants to appreciate how analytical insights start and end with the intended story, and storytelling skills are thus essential for understanding the message and gaining value from the data. Overall we will cover the essential techniques and best practices for data visualization and data storytelling.

Reviews

Daniel's lessons were well-paced. He was also able to provide rather recent examples to substantiate his narrative. I would recommend him to others who are interested in understanding more about data visualisation.
