Presenting data: how to convey information most effectively seminar 20th February 2015
For information to drive change it must be interpreted and understood. Sometimes important messages are not actioned because they are not conveyed in a way which motivates change. In this seminar we discuss the importance of considering how to present data to your audience. We give some clues on how data might be displayed and tips on how to avoid presenting data. At the end of the day, we anticipate delegates will better understand different methods and techniques that can be used to present data in a way that can optimize impact.
