Londata V: Telling Stories with Data

Rumours of our summer break turned out to be unfounded :-)

We're delighted to be able to bring you, at short notice, a fantastic evening in the company of Irene Ros and Alex Graul.

Irene, leads data visualisation at Boston based Bocoup and has recently worked on the 'Many Eyes' initiative with IBM.

Alex is part of the Guardian Interactive team that recently won the data journalism award for visualisation - http://datajournalismawards.org/

Together they have collaborated on The Miso Project, supported by The Gates Foundation. Data Viz tales aplenty they have to share...

Talking very much to the Londata vision of 'putting data to work' they will be covering the following:

> Building charts to communicate insight
> Using data visualisation to educate & inform clients/potential clients
> Choosing what data matters (& picking appropriate visualisation techniques)

A stimulating, informative and enjoyable evening awaits, of that we can be sure.
