Today I delivered the final webinar in our series, “Dashboards to inform and inspire”. The topic was about avoiding dead end dashboards. You can watch it, along with the rest of the series, here. The series has been inspired by The Big Book of Dashboards: do go check it out, if you fancy.
Go check out the Fitbit dashboard. It will change your life, initially. And if you get more life out of one than I did, let me know.

I enjoyed the webcast. I especially found the section regarding storytelling relevant. This is a prehistoric role which still has not proven to be obsolete with the passage of time but increasing more essential as we forge ahead in the world of technology. Thank you for broadening my horizon and introducing me to Hans Rosling and book recommendation Storytelling with Data.
