About this class

Fascinated by data visualisation but don't have any experience beyond charts in Excel or Powerpoint?

Data visualisations are a critical business tool. This class serves as an introduction to the visual techniques that are often employed when describing, analysing, and communicating data in a business setting. We’ll start by explaining the role of data visualisation in a business setting, and then dive into basic visual methodology. We will cover the basic principles of data visualisation, look at how data viz can be used to convey a message, and walk through the process of creating complex, dynamic visualisations.

Come and learn the basics, and get the skills you need to own that next staff meeting, marketing presentation, or business pitch!


  • Describe the business value in visualising data
  • Identify different types of data visualisations and how to use them effectively
  • Overview and examples using the following tools: Tableau Software, QlikView, Data Wrapper, Google Fusion Tables and iCharts
