These days, we can all create charts with one click. It’s easy – so why do they sometimes look so wrong? It turns out that we must respect ten thousand years of evolution, learn a new language, get to grips with core components and apply a structured process! During the day we will mix presentation, video, real published examples and workshop exercises to equip you for the exciting adventure that is modern data visualisation.

You will learn:

  • How visuals are hardwired into our biology
  • Why some charts elucidate and some obfuscate
  • The six simple steps in the visualisation cycle
  • Why you have to stay awake
  • How to transform your interaction with decision makers
  • Why action must flow from every successful visualisation

There are no pre-requisites for this course, other than enthusiasm and commitment to learning. Please note that the nature of this course makes it unsuitable for anyone with significant vision impairment. (Colour blindness is not considered an impairment in this context and we discuss this specific issue during the day.)
