    • ·         Leverage the skills, talents and opinions of all team members
    • ·         Ensure conflict becomes productive and healthy versus draining and damaging

    • ·         Create a competitive advantage and sets your organization apart
    • ·         Eventually become “A Best Place to Work”

    Using Data Visualizations to Tell Your Story

    Presenter: Janine Kurnoff

    When: Wednesday, October 4th
    11:00AM - 12:00PM CST

    Location: Virtual Webinar


    Webinar Description:

    Data provides the crucial evidence behind your ideas. Used correctly, it will elevate your story. Used incorrectly, it will cause confusion or misinterpretation of your message and stall decision-making. Why? Because brain science shows that data appeals to our left brain, where we use logic and reason, while visuals trigger our right brain, where emotion and feeling are located.

    Join us for Using Data Visualization to Tell your Story presented by Janie Kurnoff from The Presentation Company. During this webinar, Janie will arm you with best practices for visualizing data. Janie trains the world’s top brands such as Facebook, Hewlett Packard, Instagram, Nike and Oracle on how to strategically communicate their ideas through storytelling and data visualization.

    In this webinar, you’ll learn how to:

    • Tell a story with data that helps your audience quickly understand your message
    • Think “outside the chart” using photography, icons, oversized text and more
    • Identify the most common pitfalls with charts and graphs


    Janine Kurnoff is an expert in visual storytelling. She’s been featured in magazines such as Inc. and Forbes and spoken at numerous conferences for the Association of Talent and Development, Stanford University, and the Association of Change Management Professionals.

    Janine believes that many talented business people are unable to move their careers forward because they don’t know how to communicate strategically. Instead, they lead with facts, data, and lots of bullet points.

    That’s why, two decades ago, Janine founded The Presentation Company (TPC), and has spent nearly two decades developing practical techniques and tools to solve this problem. She knows that to be truly heard, you must wrap your ideas and data into a compelling visual story – one that contains the right combination of logic and emotion. When you do, any presentation can be transformed into a confident, persuasive, and memorable narrative.

    TPC trains teams – from sales to engineering – on data visualization and visual storytelling at some of the world’s top brands, including Facebook, Nike, Instagram, Cisco, MetLife and Hewlett Packard, offering communications workshops such as Crafting Strategic Visual Stories, Influencing with Visuals, and Presenting Data Visually. Its mission is to help people — regardless of their role — pull together captivating and results-driven presentations.
