Data visualisation training

The brief
Organisations of all sizes, and from all industries and sectors, are putting data at the heart of their work. But although they have vast reservoirs of available to data to work with, it is a challenge to pull out the actionable message and communicate this effectively to a range of audiences. We’ve developed data courses for both our own clients, and partners. We have worked extensively with Understanding ModernGov, who specialise in high-level public sector training. We also deliver courses for General Assembly, who specialise in the tech and startup sector.

What we did
We have delivered training to clients in the public sector (government departments, local councils, universities and police forces), private sector (international corporates, startups) and third sector (charities, NGOs). The materials for our data workshops are constantly evolving, to take in best practice examples from different industries and new tools and resources that become available. The workshops are interactive and hands-on. All the participants start with defining the audience they want to reach, the story that they want to tell, and the action that they need to promote. From there we build up the visualisation itself, with a focus on techniques that can applied regardless of the software or tools being used.

The results 
We have now run hundreds of workshops, for hundreds of delegates. We source feedback from every client, and this has been universally positive – with attendees saying that their confidence and skills had been boosted, and that they would strongly recommend the courses to other professionals.
