I’ve been rather busy working away on many projects over the last 18 months. Here’s one of them: a global website relaunch with the development organisation Plan International.
The current crisis is tough on everyone. I recognise that even in the good times, charities, non-profits, and NGOs can struggle to fund, deliver, and justify their essential work.
We’ve all suffered losses in business, funding, and activity (not to mention the terrible human toll of Covid-19), so I’ve decided to offer some pro bono consultancy to any charities large or small who would like to explore the potential of data analytics.
Google Data Studio is becoming the go-to reporting tool for data analysts in many sectors. In this article I take a look beyond the typical marketing data connectors like Google Analytics and delve into open source data from a wealth of freely-available sources, courtesy of data.world.
No need for complex engineering or data pipelines – with just a little bit of SQL and using Data Studio’s native connector, a whole new world of data can be delivered right to your dashboards!
