Data Visualisation Masterclass
Data visualisation is having a big impact on the corporate world. No matter what size of business, there is an increasing need to communicate with data whether it’s a report at the end of the month, a pitch deck, or the design of an online dashboard.
This unique Data Visualisation Masterclass introduces participants to new technical tools and techniques that can deliver state-of-the-art data visualisations quickly and easily. We demonstrate best practice, top design patterns and a workflow that takes you from raw data to impressive visuals.
This combination of art and business has developed rapidly in terms of both tools and theory. As far back as the 1850s, Florence Nightingale’s work as a statistician changed the world with one chart; a data visualisation of preventable deaths. This resulted in the allocation of resources for helping the sick and saved many lives.
Today, technology has advanced to help us deliver even more impact with data, and throughout the masterclass, participants will learn how to use new tools such as Charticulator and Data Illustrator to be able to do this. These skills are vital for reports, pitch decks, dashboard design, and any other situation where numerical data needs to be communicated clearly and persuasively.
Who is the Masterclass for?
This masterclass is for companies and individuals who need to find value in their big data investment. Participants will learn from seasoned, award-winning industry experts who will demonstrate how to create well-crafted data visualisations, that can be used in your own work immediately.
Participants will be able to interpret and uncover new insights from data quicker, more memorably, more creatively and with greater impact. Interspersed between technical sessions are talks on theory, storytelling and persuasion, which will inspire you to communicate your own work in the very best way.
