You have important data and information to share, but how do you communicate it effectively?

  • What is the message?
  • Who is your audience?
  • Will they understand the message? 

Join us in a workshop to find out how

The Open Data Programme (Stats NZ) is offering instructor-led workshops in Christchurch, Auckland, and Wellington in March.

In each workshop you will learn how to write and tell a story from data for a range of audiences. You will:

  • increase your data literacy by reviewing common statistical concepts such as percentage changes, averages, and measures of variation.
  • learn how to present data for your audience to see and understand the story you want to communicate.
  • find out what makes data visualisations effective, including graphs, charts, and detailed infographics.
