Data visualization : Make numbers speak

Formation In Person

Know how to extract stories from numbers.

We can make the numbers say what we want … hence the importance of knowing what we want to say! This storytelling workshop calls for two mindsets : scientific and creative. With hands-on training, participants will be introduced to data visualization techniques and the pitfalls of using certain graphs. In no time, they will grasp all the power of well-chosen and well-communicated data.

What is data visualization?

Data visualization is knowing how to represent data graphically, to make it understandable at a glance. Sometimes referred to as dataviz, data visualization provides a simple portrait of a complex situation using user-friendly graphical elements.
