About this event
Charities are getting better at planning their evaluation, collecting and analysing data, both qualitative and quantitative. Finding the best way to present this data can be tricky. Choosing the right charts, graphs or infographics to communicate the story your data is telling can influence how well your audiences engages with your findings, and how much can be learnt from them.
This seminar will:
- Introduce you to different data visualisation options
- Explore the benefits
- Hear how organisations have approached this.
The seminar will be chaired by Anne Kazimirski, NPC’s Head of Measurement and Evaluation and speakers include:
- Katy Murray, Communications Manager, NPC
- Oliver Carrington, Impact and Evaluation Manager, Imperial Health Charity, and 360 Giving Data Visualisation Finalist

It takes time, money and expertise to collect and analyse data. Making your data meaningful means getting the most out of it—and getting the most out of the scarce resources allocated to collecting and analysing it. This briefing is a simple how-to for charities on maximising their use of data and, as a result, the work of their organisations.
