writing and visualisation
Storytelling allows businesses to better understand insight.
Data visualisation is a great tool to help share, or tell a story, but relies on the story being written first. Improved data communication comes from combining good visualisation with a well-written narrative.
A full day workshop covers:
Data story writing
An introduction to data communication
Practical approaches for understanding specific audiences
Identifying your personal communication bias
How to find a story amongst the graph/data-noise
How to write concise and compelling data narratives for stakeholder influence
The full Data Story Canvas to implement all methods in-house
Data story visualisation
An introduction to graphic design
How to apply design principles to enhance your data visualisations
Best practice dashboard and A3 layout design
The different types of data visualisation in the analytics cycle
Graph type best practice
Designing graphs within brand guidelines
No laptop is necessary. All exercises are done using a pen and paper. The design principles and best practice data visualisation techniques taught can be applied to any software.
Non-profit rates are available on request.
Workshops can be customised and run on client-site for up to 12 people.
