A good visualization can communicate the nature and potential impact of information and ideas more powerfully than any other form of communication can. For a long time, “dataviz” was left to specialists—data scientists and professional designers—but no longer.
A new generation of simple tools and massive amounts of available data make it easy for anyone to create visualizations that communicate ideas far more effectively than generic spreadsheet charts ever could.
In this interactive HBR webinar, Berinato will show how making a persuasive online presentation demands much more than a set of static rules for creating visualizations. He will explain how presenters can tap into both well-established and cutting-edge research in visual perception and neuroscience, as well as the emerging field of visualization science, to make the kind of good charts (and avoid the bad ones) that create “feelings behind our eyes.” Along the way, Berinato will include many engaging vignettes from dataviz pros, illustrating the ideas from Good Charts in practice.
If you want to make more persuasive presentations by turning plain, uninspiring charts that merely present data into smart, effective visualizations that convey ideas and compel your audience to act, join Scott Berinato and HBR on November 9.
