EDUCATIONAL ARTIFACTS

After completing the training, you’re given your own personal artifacts: a book containing all the topics you’ve covered, posters-helpers, checklists, as well as a library of useful resources and literature. They will help you better assimilate and remember the basic techniques after the end of the face-to-face course.
WE FOCUS ON INVOLVEMENT

We combine hands-on learning of the tool with fresh theoretical knowledge to enrich the experience. Practical topics are reflected in presentations, during which we take case studies.
WE MAKE IT FUN

In addition to practical tasks in the BI-tool, we like to play with data. We prepared several games & warm-ups on working with data, charts and dashboards. We made our own card deck of 47 ways to visualize data. The VizCards will be available to all participants of the training as a gift.
THE COURSE ADJUSTS TO YOU

We love to communicate and discuss different approaches to data visualization. As we get feedback from you, we’re happy to expand the topics that are a higher priority for you.
