"This is the best course I have been to in terms of keeping everyone engaged. I found the examples of other data visualisation to be very interesting as I had never seen them before and know now to avoid certain styles! There were also different data visualisers whose works were explored - it all opened up a new way to look at the data and tell the story; a philosophy I believe Caroline delivers very well. She kept things simple as they should be (not patronising mind)" Infographics training course attendee, Warwickshire County Council
