Roundtable Summary:
Topic: Converting Data & Text into Memorable Visuals 

You’ve most likely sat through countless meetings, reviewing business metrics, data and information.

In these PowerPoint presentations, the important business information and data was most likely captured in text alone, listing all the pertinent numbers, percentages and metrics.

Transforming data and information into a visual representation will not only create a more palatable medium for your audience but will also increase comprehension and overall retention of the information.

It’s said that visual information gets to the brain at a rate of 60,000 times faster than text alone! In this roundtable, Sofia Arisheh will walk you through the key principles of transforming your business data into strong visual PowerPoint slides for senior leadership, executives and clients.

* Participants are required to bring their laptops as this is an interactive session. PowerPoint will be required for the hands-on exercises *
