For our next event we are lucky to have Cole Nussbaumer Knaflic talk to us about communicating effectively with data. This is a special event where we'll be teaming up up with the Melbourne Data Visualisation Meetup.

*Data Visualisation: learning through critique*

Less-than-ideal graphs are everywhere. It’s remarkably easy to point out what is “wrong” with other people’s data visualisations. But much can be gained from learning how to constructively discuss and critique graphs and the pages that contain them—both for giving feedback as well as honing your own data visualisation skills. Join us in this engaging, highly interactive session with author of bestselling book, storytelling with data, Cole Nussbaumer Knaflic, where you’ll practice applying core principles for communicating effectively with data, learning through critique!
