Laughlin Consultancy has joined the faculty of experts supporting the DataIQ Leader programme. This is a unique membership programme for leading practitioners in data and analytics. It comprises a broad range of intimate, confidential, business events that offer unrivalled peer to peer learning and networking along with rich, relevant content.

On 7 June 2017, Paul Laughlin ran a one day workshop on Data Visualisation for DataIQ Leaders & their analysts. This workshop received rave reviews, with all delegates rating the course highly (translating to a score of 94%).

Through a combination of sharing design best practice & examples, Paul helped delegates understand how data visualisation can be effective and what to do, to achieve effective graphs.

Delegates covered topics including:

* Why data visualisation matters
* Different types of data & tools
* Chart options & visual encoding
* Advanced options (including interactive visualisations)
* Design principles & honesty
* Embedding visualisation in your processes

The day included lots of interactive exercises. Paul shared specific tips for visual communication, that worked for him during his successful leadership career. Finally, all delegates got to take away a laminated ‘aide memoire’ of visualisation
options, copies of all slides & references for online resources and further personal development.

Paul will be running this workshop again on 5 Dec 2017:
