Your Training Options

Training Delivery

Training can be in-person or virtual and span from 4 hours up to three full days, depending on your needs. Alternatively, the training can be spaced out over the period of your typical project lifecycle to ensure participants can apply the training to the real-world environment and get feedback throughout the training.

Participants and Space

For on-site training, we cap it at 100 participants and require adequate facilities to support breakout groups and activities. For virtual training the cap is 50 participants.

Lead Time

To understand your goals and desired outcomes we recommend a 4-week lead time or more. In that first week we would discuss your needs and write a training proposal for you. Once agreed, we would compile the training materials while you schedule your team to attend. 

Application

To get the most from the training, we recommend your participants apply it directly to their roles in as much as possible. This way then can ask more questions and get direct and immediate feedback for their own applications.

MEET NICHOLAS KELLY, YOUR INSTRUCTOR 

Nicholas (LinkedIn profile) is not your typical instructor, that might have great theory but lacks the real-world experience that grounds the material in reality. Nick has lived and breathed the reality of failed data projects. He has been a Big 4 consultant to the world’s largest organizations helping them to act on their data in a career that spans from Ireland to Singapore and the USA.

From enterprise-grade operations dashboards for global banks with 200,000+ employees to intense demand, highly actionable, metrics delivery for Formula 1 drivers, he has developed a winning process for ensuring companies get ROI on their data via insight and behavioral change.

He is the creator of the Enterprise Dashboard Process, invented the Dashboard Wireframe Kit and the award-winning boardgame approach to BI requirements intake, the Dashboard Requirements Kit.

Nick has worked for many years in the analytics field, both inside and outside of Deloitte. His work has been consistently underpinned by two core themes – making the insights you and your company can get from data accessible through well thought out and intuitive visual assets; and integrating those visual assets (such as dynamic dashboards) with existing platforms and processes to help business leaders take action on the insights.

Analytics is as much an art as it is a science and Nick has a unique ability to bridge the gap between data science, digital and the generation of measurable, tangible business value. And all with an energetic approach and sprinkle of Irish charm!

Natalie Williams

DIRECTOR | Deloitte

Nick is by far the most advanced and innovative thinker in visualization I have met. He has an amazing sense of humor and his ability to connect data and people together to tell a story gives the edge to every project.



Abhinandan Mandhana

Nick is one of the most passionate and customer obsessed Analytics leaders that I have had the privilege to work with.
