Data Visualisation for Analysts


The demand for analytical skills has increased rapidly in recent years, and with data analysts generating and analysing large quantities of data, the visualisation and communication of the output has never been more important for data analysts. A skilled data analyst can not only synthesise information into a logical framework and summarise it in to a meaningful format, but can also communicate the output or results of the analysis in a well laid out visual, infographic or visual representation of the data. Hear from data modelling analyst, and author of “Using Excel for Business Analysis”, Danielle Stein Fairhurst as we study the principles of good design and how to convert your data into powerful visuals which tell a story to communicate the message uncovered by your analysis.
