Presenting data effectively leads to people actually reading our data and reports. When we can engage people with intentional reporting, our audience will be more engaged and able to take informed action. Together, we will review Lyons Visualization's 3-Step Process to creating effective visuals by examining before and after data transformations. Grounded in visual processing theory, the principles discussed will enhance attendees' ability to communicate more effectively with peers, colleagues, and clients through a focus on the proper use of color, arrangement, graphics, and text. You will walk away knowing the anatomy of a good visualization, and will have more tools to better design your PowerPoint presentations, reports, fact sheets, dashboards, and conference posters.
