**NEW COURSE** Demonstrating impact is crucial for fundraising – and data is the evidence that you can use. Visual presentations of data are proven to be more persuasive, engaging and effective than narrative text or tables of numbers.

Standard Content

This course focuses on a science-led approach to presenting data to communicate insights and drive action. It will lead you through a tried and tested process for creating data-led communications – from planning, through selecting the right type of chart or infographic, to applying intelligent design techniques. You will learn to create powerful visuals for a range of different audiences and formats, regardless of the software you have access to.

A thorough and enlightening course with a clear method of thinking about your audience first, what they need to know and then making the data work. I used to do all my visuals within Excel but didn't know about Flourish and how easy it is to use.
