Public & Private Workshops2021-12-06T23:57:58+00:00

I offer two workshops, one for the consumers of charts and dashboards and the other for the creators of charts and dashboards.

The Big Picture

The workshop for consumers is called The Big Picture: How to Use Data Visualization to Make Better Decisions, Faster and is based on my book with the same name. My goal is to get all attendees fluent in the language of charts and dashboards so that they can make better decisions, faster.

Attendees will learn, quickly and enjoyably, the basics of data visualization (aka “graphicacy”) so that everyone can have informed, intelligent discussions about data.

Building World-Class Business Dashboards

The workshop for creators is called Building World-Class Business Dashboards and it is based on my book The Big Book of Dashboards: Visualizing Your Data Using Real-World Business Scenarios.

A well-designed dashboard can point out risks, opportunities, and more; but common challenges and misconceptions can make your dashboard useless at best, and misleading at worst. This workshop will discuss the tools, guidance, and models you need to produce great dashboards that inform, enlighten, and engage.

“Steve’s Dashboard class is the single best data training I’ve been to hands down! And I’ve been to Edward Tufte’s workshop. If you want to hit work the NEXT DAY with actionable learnings and enthusiasm, this is an incredible resource”

Zach Bowders, Sr Data Analyst, ALSAC St. Jude Children's Research Hospital

This was genuinely one of the best workshops I’ve attended. Steve balanced his instruction with relevant and engaging examples and group exercises.  Steve is clearly an expert at his craft, but he made those of us who are new to creating visualizations and dashboards feel comfortable. His follow up post-training has been phenomenal. His passion to educate the world on data visualization and to be of service to his audience is inspiring.

Molly Schmied, Chief Analytics Officer at Ohio State University
“Steve’s workshop armed our team with the right tools to have meaningful discussions with our stakeholders and fostered an appreciation for how good data visualizations leads to better insights. Applying what we learned to our own work has been a game changer.“
Michael Switzer, Data Analytics Senior at FreddieMac
