Whether you are currently using Google Analytics as your dashboard solution, or perhaps you’ve not yet got experience building dashboards but you realise that your organisation needs one, we’ve got you covered.

Data Studio is Google’s dashboarding / reporting tool that allows you to visualise data from most Google products (and from other tools through using Google Sheets) in an appealing, user-friendly way.

We will help you to understand from both a technical and a strategic point of view how your organisation can get the most out of this free product and tell a story using data.

This one day course is led by our experienced analytics practitioners, who will share with you tips and tricks from their experience working on agency client accounts.

Our Google Data Studio course is offered as a live Virtual Classroom or private training session. It can be delivered at any location of your choice.

This course was a really good introduction to Data Studio. A lot of information to digest but the trainer made it all very easy to understand with great examples
