DAMA Calgary Chapter April 2019 talk:

"Creating Powerful Data Vizualizations"

By Yogi Schulz of Corvelle Consulting

Thursday April 18th @8AM at the Suncor Calgary Office - 17th Floor, West Tower, 150 6th Ave SW


Abstract:

Yogi Schulz will increase our understanding of how to create powerful data visualizations. We’ve all sat through unreadable, confusing, boring, or even misleading presentations of data on charts. We’ll talk about how to make charts more powerful so that we communicate our message with more impact.

Yogi will describe these aspects of powerful data visualizations:

  • Understand visualizations
  • Create visualizations
  • Refine visualizations
  • Present and practice visualizations


This presentation is not about best practices for PowerPoint presentations.
This presentation is about effectively communicating the results of big data analytics.


Learning Objectives:

  1. Understand design considerations that lead to powerful data visualizations
  2. Understand effective techniques to create data visualizations
  3. Understand best practice tips for presenting data visualizations
