Make Your Data Visual – Free webinar via Zoom

Wednesday, July 15th at 1pm (30 minutes)
followed by Q&A


Effective data visualisation orders complex information into a clear visual format, making it easier to read and understand, which, in turn, gives your company or business greater insight. More importantly, it helps identify patterns that can bolster successful strategies, enabling important decisions to be made more quickly.

However, data visualisation is about much more than selecting the correct software – it’s about knowing how to bring the appropriate visual elements together to ensure that communication is clear, efficient and effective.

The session will introduce practical advice and considerations for approaching data visualisation and should be of interest to anyone who works with data, charts and graphs on a regular basis.

This webinar is a brief synopsis of the Data Visualisation module, run by the Limerick School of Art and Design (LSAD) in conjunction with the Irish Centre for Business Excellence (ICBE).

Closer to the date we will send you a link to Zoom that you can access via your smart phone or computer. Full instructions will be provided then, but you will need a headset and good broadband internet connection.
