"It was an excellent workshop for the Analyst, delivered really well."

"Every aspect of this workshop was really useful as an analyst.  I found the breakout room discussions more helpful than just tackling the exercises on my own as we shared ideas and perspectives."

Kate O'Donnell, NHS

"Excellently delivered workshop and possibly the most relevant for the Analysts in getting us thinking on the approach to take when structuring and presenting data."

"Very helpful.  The training is really useful to use to make decisions when delivering data to a particular audience. It is a course I would highly recommend to other colleagues!"


Despite the best technical endeavours analytics has little or no value if the analyst cannot influence the stakeholders and their decision making. In this workshop,  the six principles of influencing are presented and their practical application discussed in the context of analytics teams. Participants will take away practical tips to help them to improve their influence in all aspects of their day-to-day roles.
