About the workshop

This half or full day data visualisation workshop will empower your team to find, simplify, and visualise data using cutting-edge tools and techniques. And then instruct them on creating an engaging and memorable story with the power of data visualisation in all its formats.

The structure of Datalabs’ data visualisation workshop revolves around the tools and techniques that are used for the effective communication of insights. It’s geared to those that are on the ‘front lines’, ie. analysts, marketers, researchers, content creators, or those other positions that are handling data in their everyday jobs.

The business environment is changing and our workshop aims to give attendees a beginner’s skill-set for visualising and communicating data.

A Crash Course in Data Visualisation

Workshop attendees will learn to simplify their data and understand which chart and graph types are useful for which types of data. After this data visualisation training session, attendees will also discover for themselves the techniques for highlighting insights and teasing out the best visuals using graphic design software. And finally, the Datalabs’ Tools & Techniques Workshop instructor will instruct your team on how best to tell a story using data visualisation. Workshop attendees learn how to ‘storify’ their data visualisation, placing visual design into a variety of content formats: data presentations, animated data videos, and infographic reports. At the end of this course, your team will have created beautiful and insightful data visualisations for themselves.
