Data Visualisation – How to Present Data

Microsoft Power BI vs. Google Data Studio Chesterfield course

Course Overview

D2N2 Digital Skills Academy is a free, innovative programme set up exclusively to help autistic individuals and women, particularly those who are returning to work after a period of absence, those out of work, and those looking for another role or to progress within their own organisation.

Data is a useful tool to inform great business decisions. But how do you present figures and statistics in interesting and accessible ways to team members or senior management with less knowledge than you?

This four-day training course will provide a comprehensive overview of how you can record and present data in ways that will help inform great business decisions. The course is about presenting large amounts of information in ways that are universally understandable and how to spot patterns, trends and correlations that then translate into recommendations. The formats covered in the course include charts, graphs, infographics and other pictorial diagrams.

The course also covers use of the tools and software necessary to communicate information in these ways, for clients or your own company. This course is great for anyone who has to analyse, digest and present large amounts of data as part of their role.

Day 1: Introducing Power BI

Day 2: Power BI Desktop Visualisation

Day 3: Working with Power BI Service

Day 4: Working with Excel
