DataVisCoursePosterClear Vision - Presenting data without the fog

A highly interactive workshop led by Ed Swires-Hennessy, statistical consultant and Hon Treasurer at the Royal Statistical Society

Many basic numeric messages are inadequately communicated because of poor presentation. This course illustrates some of the problems and demonstrates ways to improve the reception of messages by different target audience. This one-day course is the foundation to all presentations of statistical information. The basic principles of presenting information in tables, charts, maps and text are explained. These are illustrated and then reinforced through practical exercises.


The course is for anyone who is involved in communicating statistics to non-statisticians, or who reports on data within organisations, to specific communities and to the general public where a message is being delivered.
