What is a Dashboard, anyway?

He will share his own definition and explain how the purpose of sharing data isn't to fit a particular definition, but to fulfill a goal. Andy will show many examples of different dashboards, explaining why they work and how they push the definition of the term "dashboard". Attend this webinar if you want to more effectively engage the users of your dashboards.

  • Analysing the Employee Experience to Create Better Engagement Recorded: Aug 29 2019 43 mins
    Jen Jackson, Guest Speaker, CEO, Jaxzyn
    The Employee Experience - How do we increase engagement? How can we shift/build our culture? These are the questions often asked by leaders. But what if we're asking the wrong questions? What if we no longer had to deal with big, fuzzy words like engagement or culture — vague notions that are tough to define, and even more difficult to change? The answer lies in the employee experience. Because experiences aren’t intangible. Experiences can be defined. They can be changed. They can be improved. And it’s all remarkably simple. Best of all, by focusing on creating great employee experiences: we also increase engagement and shift culture as well.

    In this keynote we'll be diving into what makes a remarkable experience and looking at the key skills leads and teams need for the future of work. Skills such as empathy, curiosity, authenticity & creativity for driving connection and collaboration.

    Andy Kirk, Andy Cotgreave, Amanda Hobbs

They’re going head-to-head for five rounds to tackle some of the biggest issues in data visualization. And our special host for the debate is Amanda Hobbs, an expert infographics and data viz storyteller who will be keeping the Andy's on their toes.

    The debate is on, here are the five rounds:

    Round 1: Punk or Academic
    What's the best approach to practising data viz, do you need to do a full course or just open up your favourtive tool and get going?

    Round 2: Form vs. Function
    Does 'form follow function' or is it the other way around? The Andy's will discuss how familiarity, speed of recognition, cognitive overload, and your quadrant of needs determines whether to choose form or function.

    Round 3: Simple vs Complex Charts
    How not to abdicate your responsibilities as an analyst? If you need a sign, it’s bad design! Is every chart type useful and usable?

    Round 4: Blue-Orange: Love or Hate
    Who said 'orange' represents good? Or is it blue?

    Round 5: Blood Boilers
    Find out what gets Andy Cotgreave's and Andy Kirk's blood boiling.

    Join this webinar with data viz expert Andy Kirk to discover the major challenges and opportunities of visualising ‘nothing’ - the null and zero values in your data.

In this session, Andy will discuss the key insights to look out for when analysing the absence of a data value compared to the presence of a zero value.

    By joining this webinar you will learn about:

    - How to visualise the zeros in your data

    - How to deliberately use blank space to best visualise null and zero data
