Tableau 101: Telling Meaningful Stories with Data | FREE Livestream | Edinburgh

About this workshop

Welcome to Free Fridays!

Our Free Friday Livestreams are here to give you a bite-sized sample of what you’ll learn in our Workshops, Part Time and Immersive courses.

Are you curious about telling meaningful stories with data analysis in Tableau, but don’t have any experience beyond charts in Excel or Powerpoint? This Tableau 101 Livestream is perfect for you!

In this free, two-hour Tableau livestream tutorial, we’ll cover the basic data visualization techniques and tools used to describe, analyze, and communicate data in a business setting. Then, apply what you’ve learned in Tableau Public. All in real time, taught by an industry professional.

Join us for Tableau 101 to learn the basics and gain the skills you need to own that next staff meeting, marketing presentation, or business pitch with Tableau!

As an added bonus, a member of our Admissions Team will be joining this livestream to talk to you about the enrollment process for our Part Time and Immersive course, and answer your questions regarding course pacing, payment options, career development, and more!

What will the livestream learning experience be like? - Ask questions and build your online network by interacting with fellow classmates and an expert instructor — all in real time via live chatbox and Q&A. - Complete optional classwork to give you a hands-on taste of the subject. - Learn new skills in the comfort of your own home, or on the go! All participants will be automatically muted with no video.
