Destination Data [Auckland] – Free Workshop covering varying essential data skills

28 August @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm NZST


Are you curious about what it means to work in a “data” field. Wonder what sort of things you could be doing, if it’s for you?
Are you in a data field currently, and are looking to expand your skills further?
Or do you just want to meet more like minded individuals in your field and network?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, then this is the event for you!

This is a free event from She Loves Data – an organisation focused on encouraging and enabling women into fields that are typically male dominated. By providing the opportunity to network and empower one another, we strive to give women the confidence to go after their dream of working with data.

This workshop will includes lectures, hands on demonstrations and a panel at the end. (This means downloading required data sets /programs beforehand)

The agenda will include;
Soft skills and time saving functions for everyday
Data visualisation
Analytics Cloud
Power BI Desktop
and SAP architecture for data processing and analytics with real world case studies.

Snacks and lunch will be provided (catered by Eat My Lunch thanks to Xero).
