Now You See It: Visual Data Analysis SOLD OUT!

Apr 27, 2017

Most business data analysis requires skills and practices involving the use of graphs that can be easily learned, but resources that teach them are almost impossible to find. Almost all books and courses on data analysis teach sophisticated statistical and financial analysis techniques, but only about 10% of business data analysis requires them. This full-day course is for those responsible for the remaining 90%.

All attendees will receive a copy of the book Now You See It: Simple Visualization Techniques for Quantitative Analysis.

The workshop will be held at the Renaissance Portsmouth-Norfolk Waterfront Hotel, located at 425 Water Street in historic Portsmouth, Virginia on the banks of the Elizabeth River.


We reserved a block of guest rooms at the Renaissance Portsmouth-Norfolk Waterfront Hotel, but the remaining rooms in the block released for sale to the general public on April 2 and we're told that the hotel is mostly full now. If you'd like to stay at the hotel, you can call (888) 839-1775 to make your reservation. If there are any regular rooms still available on the nights you want to say, you should still receive our group rate of $122 per night plus taxes and fees if you tell them you're with the "Visual Business Intelligence Workshop" when you register.


Lunch will be provided each day and will include sandwiches, salad, dessert, and beverages. Refreshments will be provided in the morning and afternoon.
