With so much information available it can be hard to move from just sharing data and observations, to identifying real actionable insights.

IGD’s Data to Insight virtual workshop is ideal for insight, analyst and category managers looking to improve their management of information and how they practice insight generation.

The online training session will be delivered by our industry experts in high energy, bite-sized sprints. Over the course of three days, you will take part in live one and a half hour classes.

Workshop overview

This interactive workshop will take you through the optimum process required to distil reams of data into meaningful insights. It’s a great way to build your confidence to deliver insight-led recommendations.

Led by IGD’s category management expert Ray Leung, you’ll take part in a programme of interactive and engaging virtual workshops. That will introduce you to practical tools you can take away and implement in your day to day right away.
