Why you should Attend
The goal of this webinar is to challenge the old belief that data is boring, and to turn that belief into excitement that data empowers the decision makers with crystal clear messaging.
Have you ever looked at a confusing chart and wondered why you can't understand what it's telling you? The problem is NOT you. It is the chart.
Attend this webinar and you will see side-by-side examples of good vs bad charts, you will see the difference between old fashioned data layout and the new theory of data presentation. And you will view some technical sections inside Excel that will help you when it’s time to design your new chart.
