Event description

Description

Explore the power of visual storytelling and use it to create compelling presentations that resonate with your audience at this hands-on evening class with data visualisation expert Laura Knight.

Death by PowerPoint – we’ve all experienced it. Slide after slide of bullet points, text and meaningless visuals. But how can we create compelling presentations that show rather than tell?

This hands-on masterclass with data visualisation expert Laura Knight will focus on strategies that will help you establish the key points of your story and identify the best way to tell that story visually.

You will learn to understand a specific audience, identify your key messages, explore visual metaphors and storytelling structures, and plan a presentation that will communicate your ideas more effectively. You will undertake practical exercises and receive feedback from Laura and your peers throughout the evening, working collaboratively to develop ideas and plan your presentation.

Whether you’re a student presenting research, an entrepreneur, a marketer or a designer, this masterclass will help you understand how to translate seemingly dry data into visuals that will inspire and inform your audience.
