In this new
era of big data and powerful analytical tools, much is becoming possible.
Whether we are persuading investors, challenging executives, or negotiating
with difficult sponsors, the ability to tell a compelling story with data is a
valuable skill. Did you ever give a presentation that was less impactful than
you had hoped? The combination of good storytelling and compelling visuals is a
winning combination, and, fortunately, software is evolving to make developing
persuasive graphical representations easier than ever. This talk will highlight
some data visualization tools and challenge us all to be better storytellers.
