#469: It's All in the Presentation

Posted By Mark Haas CMC FIMC, Thursday, December 30, 2010
Updated: Thursday, December 30, 2010
I have a fascinating source of data visualization I'd like to share with my fellow Daily Tips readers. It is Information Is Beautiful.

All the data in the world will not help you convince a client of your findings, much less compel them to take your recommendations and implement them, unless you can present these data in an interesting and understandable way. Take the time to find the best way to present data, and don't just throw them into a PowerPoint template because you think everyone is familiar with that approach. Glad to pass this source along. The Information Is Beautiful website is an inspiration for all consultants to "think before they print."

Tip: One of my favorites is the Hierarchy of Digital Distractions.

Does IMCUSA have any tool to train me on how to boost my skills on "visualisation" of information capabilities ?
I am a new subscriber so I just started to know the site.
Thanks in advance.
