Free Webinar: Best Practices for Data Visualization
Reading time: about 2 min
Posted by: Lucid Content Team
We know December is busy—and we hope you’re hanging in there. Between the craziness of 2017 planning, Q4 wrap-up, and holiday parties, you deserve a break. And what better way to do so than to kick back and enjoy Lucid’s second webinar, “How to Create Persuasive Charts, Diagrams and Data Visualizations.”
On December 15th at 12 p.m. MST, our COO Dave Grow will be joined by a special guest: Scott Berinato, Senior Editor at Harvard Business Review and author of Good Charts: The HBR Guide to Making Smarter, More Persuasive Data Visualizations.
We often talk about the power of visualization, especially in a world with shorter attention spans and greater information overload. Diagrams that tell a story can work wonders for breaking through all that noise and helping your audience understand your ideas. But they can’t be just any diagrams—they have to be good ones. The difference between a chart that takes 10 seconds to understand and one that takes two can be the difference between a sale and no sale.
An expert on using visual solutions to solve problems and a champion of data visualization, Scott will share his secrets on best practices so you too can become a charting guru. Join us and:
- Understand why dataviz is a necessary skill for managers and organizations.
- Determine what makes a good chart and how to make one.
- Learn easy ways to improve your diagramming skills.
- Understand how to think critically about charts.
- Learn tools and techniques to improve your data visualization.
About the Presenters:
Scott Berinato is an award-winning writer, editor, content architect, and self-described “dataviz geek” who loves tackling communication problems with visual solutions. He has championed the use of visual communication and storytelling and has launched successful visual formats. Before HBR, he was an executive editor at CXO Media. When he’s not busy thinking visually, he enjoys writing and thinking about technology, business, science, and the future of publishing.
Dave Grow came on board shortly after the launch of Lucidchart and has worn nearly every hat on the business and product teams. Prior to joining Lucid, Dave worked as a management consultant at Bain & Company. He graduated summa cum laude from Brigham Young University with a B.S. in Business Management. Dave is a political junkie and tries to keep up with the outdoorsy stunts of the rest of the team (with only an occasional trip to the emergency room).
Take advantage of the opportunity to interact with Scott and Dave, and start harnessing the power of thinking visually. If you can't join the webinar live, you'll be greatly missed, but you don’t need to worry. When you register, we will automatically send the slides and recording to you afterwards.
