Data visualization and presentation skills

Data visualization helps data professionals turn data, quickly and effectively, into (control) information. This is increasingly important. This is because the gap between data specialists, who work with data on a daily basis, and people who have less affinity with data is widening.

However, choosing the right visualization is not obvious. As a result, your message may not come across well to your audience. During this training you will learn how to choose the right visualization for your data and story. We do this using a step-by-step plan. Attention will be paid to practical examples and pitfalls. This knowledge can be used when developing dashboards, fact sheets, infographics and presentations.

In order to tell the story hidden in your data in a clear way, we also teach you how best to build your story. To get and hold attention and thus ensure that your message comes across well.

Learning goals

After the training you will be able to:

  • Choosing the right visualization type
  • Get the right message across with your visualization
  • Apply the right techniques to build your story
  • Capture the audience’s attention during your presentation

Target audience

This course is suitable for all data professionals who have little experience with visualization. Prior knowledge of specific techniques or tooling is not required.


The following topics will be covered during this training:

  • Importance of visualizations
  • Correct chart types
  • Roadmap for building graphs
  • Do’s and dont’s in colors and axes
  • Pyramid method
  • Building your story
  • Getting and keeping attention for your story

Besides the theoretical part, there will also be enough time to work with it, so that at the end of the day you will go home with enough experience and knowledge to make a convincing presentation.
