Using Data Visualisation to Inform and Persuade

  • A good visualization can communicate the nature and potential impact of information and ideas more powerfully than any other form of communication. It’s also increasingly becoming a need-to-have skill for managers. If you’re not doing it, it is time to get started.

    The good news is that a new generation of tools and massive amounts of available data are making it easy for anyone—not just data scientists and professional designers—to create visualizations that communicate ideas far more effectively than generic spreadsheet charts ever could.
  • When: 03/10/2016
  • Speakers: Michael Segalla, Professor at HEC Paris

Join Harvard Business Review ’s Senior Editor Scott Berinato to learn how to use this new language to inform and persuade. With hands-on examples and sketches, Berinato will share specific examples of good charts and bad ones.

A panel discussion with examples of real-world dataviz needs by industry executives from Amazon, Carlson Wagonlit, and HealthWorks France will follow his presentation.

The event will be introduced and moderated by Michael Segalla, Professor of Management at HEC Paris and Board Member of Foch Foundation.
