A private training session for your team. Groups can be of any size, at a location of your choice including our training centres.

Jellyfish are highly experienced in using Google Data Studio to create dashboards for clients across a wide range of verticals. Our training facilitators all have a wealth of hands-on experience in creating and maintaining insightful dashboards using the tool.

Data Studio is Google’s dashboarding / reporting tool that allows you to visualise data from hundreds of data sources in an appealing, user-friendly way. If you find yourself constantly exporting spreadsheets and building charts offline, Data Studio can vastly improve the efficiency of your role.

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. We’ll focus on visualising data from Google Analytics in this course, but will also bring in examples from spreadsheet data sources, as well as demonstrating how to blend data sources!

Our courses are available at our training centre in The Shard, London or online via virtual classroom. We also offer private training at a location of your choice across the UK, globally or online.
