It is always a privilege to be asked to give talks and this last week I've given two more at the National Audit Office as well as a webinar for Tableau. As many people like to have access to the slide content after each talk I don't mind at all sharing them.

A quick profile of Dear Data, a lovely ‘artisan visualisation’ concept from the brains and pens of Giorgia Lupi and Stefanie Posavec. It has had plenty of coverage on other sites and on social media this week but I wanted to briefly mention it for anybody else out there yet to come across it. The …
