Graphs, Charts, and Data Visualization – All Three in Your Next PowerPoint Presentation (Training Magazine Network)
PowerPoint graphs and charts are an excellent way to show information visually, allowing an audience to see the trend or result straight away. Graphs are a common component to most presentations, but they aren’t always used correctly. An effective graph can show a trend, support your message, explain a situation, and much more besides. Data visualization takes things further, to convey complex concepts in an elegant and relatable way. In this webinar we explain how to use and create PowerPoint graphs and charts effectively. We show the common mistakes people make and how to avoid them. Then teach you how to create live and non-live graphs, charts, and other data visualizations that will help engage your audience and get your message across.
