Tell Your Story with Data Visualization (Great Graphs)

Half-Day Workshop 8:30- Noon

Is your data sitting around in spreadsheets, dusty, unused, and forgotten about? Your data deserves to be out in the world: utilized, actionable, talked about. Visualizing data through charts, tables, and diagrams helps you deliver bite-sized information that viewers can understand at a glance and retain for the long run. In Great Graphs, you’ll learn how to move beyond overused charts like pies and bars and how to format your new chart so that your message stands out.

This workshop will be the best practice version.

Design Dashboards from Scratch, Right Inside of Good Ol’ Excel (Dashboard Design)

Half-Day Workshop 1:00- 4:30 PM

Why wait until the end of the year to write a lengthy report when you can share data early and often with dashboards? Your organization’s leaders have more important things to do than read lengthy reports. Dashboards get to the point so that leaders can understand the numbers and take action. In Dashboard Design, you’ll learn how to build one-page dashboards that showcase your key metrics.
