Are you interested in understanding the principles behind effective, gripping infographics and learning how to make your data stand out? Scroll on to find out all about how you can better tell your story by bringing information to life in new and meaningful ways.
Remote/online workshops (NEW!)
As of 2020, I had to rethink some aspect of my workshops to make them available online or remotely. Training and workshops are part of my regular workflow (I regularly teach Data Visualization workshops at London College of Communication in London) but in light of the COVID-19 pandemic I had to rethink my way to share knowledge in new creative ways.
I’m happy to announce that I am now offering remote/online live workshop for teams and individuals! In March 2020 I had the chance to teach my first online/remote live workshop to a class of 30 students for the Stockholm-based global learning provider Hyper Island and it was a great and partecipatory experience!
A brand new workshop structure adapted to be experienced online, with theory, exercises and lots of partecipatory moments! Wait no more and get in touch today to book your data visualization workshop!
About the workshops
Participants will learn how to plan for and apply the creative process behind effective data visualization, exploring the nitty-gritty of best practices in the industry. They will also develop practical techniques on how to make their work meaningfully stand out, as well as vital lessons on improving workflow.
Workshops will be open to anyone interested in expanding their knowledge on storytelling and data visualization, or simply presenting data in an innovative and accurate visual format (think PowerPoint presentations, reports, social media, charts and so on). The workshops cater to both beginners, more advanced participants or non-designers.
What you get out of it
At the end of the workshop, each participant will:
- Learn how to format a data visualization-ready dataset;
- Be able to discuss the difference between infographics and data visualization;
- Understand all the elements that make an infographic work well;
- Learn each step of the creative process and how to apply them to the different stages of their work;
- Find out the fundamental design principles involved in communicating messages in a clear and striking way;
- Be able to tailor their message to different audiences and learn how to use tools to create their next head-turning graph.
At the end of the workshop, all attendees will receive a complementary list of resources to buttress the knowledge and practical skills learned as part of the course, helping them to stay informed and inspired by data visualization and its possibilities for engendering better communication and storytelling.
How to attend
The workshops involve a lot of sketching, idea generation, and hands-on exercises but they can be customised around your needs.

Not at all! I offer workshops for beginners, intermediate, advanced, and non-designers practitioners. Entire teams with different roles and skills can join the same session.
