Using data to describe impact and tell stories

Plus charity makes online and distance learning available. The latest Business Live radio show featuring Tom French and Daniel Stanbra.

Tom French supports people to use data and evaluation better. He covers some examples of his work and how it helps to inform decisions, and has advice on what to think about when you’re collecting or analysing data.

Tom is also part of Sheffield Data for Good and tells me about a recent collective effort with powerful results.

Also on the show: Daniel Stanbra of The Source Skills Academy. Would you like to boost your skills or help isolated staff boost theirs?

The Source, a registered charity, has made a variety of free-to-access training courses available online and through posted learning packs. Daniel tells me what they are and how his organisation acted rapidly to support Sheffield City Region businesses.
