Were very excited about the opportunity to inform future leaders and thinkers at the University of Toronto about the value of data visualizations and dashboards, not just for businesses, but for society as a whole. said Nelson Ng, Principal Consultant at Dundas Data Visualization. One of the biggest challenges Dundas clients in every sector face is figuring out how to harness the vastness and richness of the data available to us, without being overwhelmed by it. It is our hope that the content we present will not only benefit them in their future endeavors, but also provide them with great practical advice for improving how they present and consume data today. Its an exciting field to be in; I hope theyll walk away feeling inspired and empowered to tackle the difficult and complex challenges of the future.

Having Dundas come to our campus to present their knowledge about data visualizations is a huge asset to us said Octavio Escalante Menchaca, Student Leader at the University of Toronto. Were a big fan of supporting local businesses throughout Toronto so it made sense that we partner with a company like Dundas Data Visualization. Hopefully, this turns out to be a beneficial arrangement for both parties involved.
