** DUE TO INCREDIBLE LEVELS OF INTEREST, THIS EVENT IS FULLY BOOKED AFTER JUST 8 DAYS, A RESERVE LIST IS IN PLACE TO HANDLE ANY (LIKELY) DROPOUTS **
I'm delighted to announce details of a special half-day 'Data visualisation and infographic design' workshop, to be held in Leeds on Thursday 20th September. Registration is free for and open only to members of staff across the NHS. Visit the Eventbrite page now to register to attend!
I am offering this free event to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the NHS. It represents a small gesture of thanks, albeit indirectly, to the service for all the care it has given my family and friends down the years.
The training is relevant to anyone who has an interest in improving their critical thinking around the visual communication of data, whether you are somebody who creates data visualisations or infographics or just consumes them. This half-day session will challenge, enlighten, inspire and equip you with a more sophisticated understanding of this vital contemporary literacy.
The session capacity is limited to 70 places. To help manage a fair sign-up process, delegates will be limited to booking a maximum of 5 places per registration. The NHS is a complex organisation, so eligibility may be messy. There are many related bodies and institutes who should or could be considered 'part' of the NHS (eg. NIHR, Public Health bodies) and I don't want to prevent them attending.
To establish an initial simplified criteria, delegates registering should have an NHS email address. If you do not have such an email address but can demonstrate you are part of a related NHS type of organisation (or will be joining the NHS by September) please, in the first instance, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please don't register if you are clearly not eligible (eg. If you don't know what the NHS is, that's the first key clue): it will save your time and my time and ensure places are available to those who merit them.
