OpenUp: data visualisation course offering

Learn to tell compelling narratives by transforming your data into information and stories that make sense and matter to your audience!

OpenUp have received a lot of interest in their data visualisation course, so they have decided to run their Package and Present for Data Storytelling short course each month from March 2018 onwards.

The course will take place in both Cape Town and Johannesburg from 19 to 20 March and 17 to 18 April.

They will cover data storytelling, visualisation, and packaging and presentation – helping participants transform their analysis to improve their data storytelling and tell narratives that matter. By the end of the two days, participants will be able to take a raw set of data and convert it into a compelling narrative, tailored to suit their audience.

Sign-up now and join their Package and Present for Data Storytelling Open Intake.

The course is presented over two days by TrainUp, the training arm of OpenUp at a cost of R4,600 per person, excluding VAT.
