This training is for anyone who needs to present data insights as part of their role
- engineers, finance, HR, technicians etc…
Students will be asked to bring a data project to the course that is a typical part of their role so the project is personal to each student.
It is also a great opportunity to learn what other companies are doing in this area.
While we’re aware that organisations use tools such as QlickView, Tableau or Excel;
this programme is not based on any system.
The purpose is to train participants who communicate insights from data, regardless of what system
they are pulling the data from,
to present that data clearly and effectively so that decisions can be made more easily.
The focus is on visual literacy
9-week online programme - comprising four teaching and four tutorial sessions plus one presentation
Each Thurs 10am – 1pm for nine weeks
There will be a specific time set aside to avail of tutorial advice, which can be done or via phone, Skype, email, etc. Tutorial times will be arranged in advance.
From applicants, we require current role title and a sentence or two on what they hope to gain from this course.

Feedback from 2020 Virtual Programme:
- I found the course to be interesting - lots of new information and sharing the projects that others completed was really helpful. Process Engineer
- This course was very beneficial to me for graphing information into key points using the correct graph type, colour, display layout and font. It was excellent in showing me how to present data to a senior team. Would highly recommend the course. The assignments each week got everyone working from the very beginning and thinking about what they could change the display better. Personnel Officer
- Would highly recommend the course and the tutor (Eamon) was very well able to transfer information and help all of us to understand the meaning and how to apply it. Systems Analyst
- This course was well delivered by Eamon. He gave me loads of help and tips to aid me with my assignments. I found this course very useful. It gave me great tips on knowing your audience. I got a good understanding about the importance of knowing the story that you are trying to tell. It also helped me think about how important font and colour is to your visualisations. I would recommend this course to anyone that uses data for business metrics and presents it out. Data Analyst
