Data visualisation literacy is an essential capability regardless of the domain in which you work. Andy Kirk joins LBAG to go through the various ingredients for a talented, contemporary visualiser!
In this talk, Andy will be championing the value of data visualisation as a discipline that is in ever-increasing demand. Data visualisation literacy is an essential capability regardless of the domain in which we work. Just as computer literacy is now a common capability expected of everyone, one can imagine a time in the not-too-distant future when having data visualisation capabilities will be viewed as a similarly ‘assumed’ attribute across many different roles.
Framed as the ‘7 hats’ of data visualisation, Andy will profile the various competency ingredients that make up the all-round talent recipe of a contemporary visualiser. He will differentiate knowledge from skills, attitudinal maturity from technical intelligence. He will also advise on some of the strategies that will help you continue to develop and refine your data visualisation literacy.
