Rise Refresh : Data analysis foundations
Monday 3 February 2020

Rise Refresh: Data analysis foundations

Being able to use data effectively is one of the most essential skills in the modern workplace. Yet, for many people, it's an area where they've received little formal training and feel uncertain analysing data themselves or discussing it with others.

In this session attendees will learn the fundamental principles of data analysis so they can use it more effectively in their day to day jobs. With the use of real world examples, attendees will be guided through the core steps of the analytical process providing them with not only a way to think about data (developing an analytical mindset) but with the skills, tips and watch-outs so they can analyse data better themselves and discuss it more confidently with others.

The workshop is a fun, interactive session over lunch (so please bring your laptops) and is applicable to all the data software attendees may use.

If you're interested in hosting your event in our space at Rise London, get in touch with us for details of availability and cost.
