Have you ever emailed a report to a colleague and wondered whether they even read about the results? Have you tried sharing data during meetings only to watch their eyes glaze over? If so, this hands-on workshop is for you. Visualizing data through charts and diagrams helps you deliver bite-sized pieces of information that viewers understand at a glance and retain for the long run. You’ll participate in a step-by-step data visualization design process, from matching visualizations to viewers’ information needs, to identifying the appropriate dissemination formats (like slidedocs and dashboards), to building graphs in Excel. You’ll practice improving upon Excel’s default settings by customizing RGB codes, writing titles that summarize key findings, and reducing clutter. You’ll also build advanced chart types from scratch, like small multiples layouts.
This workshop is highly interactive; laptops required. PCs preferred, Macs okay.
