Mastering Data Visualisation and Becoming a Data Fiduciary

From bar charts to pie charts, line graphs and everything in between, we've been placing data in visual form since the first bar graph was invented in the 1700's. While charts and graphs have been common parts of our lives, the demand for data visualisation has skyrocketed in recent years. Today, anyone hoping to reach a modern audience must know how to best visualise the data at hand. But, as the popularity of data viz has reached new levels, so too have the mistakes. 

Inaccurate representations of data, whether intended or accidental, run rampant in media today. This has led to a loss of trust in brands and worse, a loss of trust in facts. To mitigate this, we must all become data fiduciaries—a role that requires a deep understanding of the brain science behind data viz and the best practices within this medium. In this 90-minute session, data viz expert and visual communication thought leader Amy Balliett will give you all the tools you need to be just that: a data visualisation fiduciary empowered to produce the best visualisations every single time. In this session you will learn:

  • The brain science behind data viz
  • How to identify the right chart/graph for your needs
  • How to ensure you are leveraging visual cues to harness the power of visual communication in your data
  • How to test your data viz for success
  • How to avoid the common mistakes found in data viz today

This session is for The Faculty Roundtable members only. For more information on The Faculty Roundtable, please contact [email protected]
