Presenting data effectively is a one-day training programme that focuses on a fairly common activity in the business world: presenting numbers and quantitative information to an audience. This type of presentation is not easy to handle, and one must avoid falling into easy and common mistakes.
The quality and quantity of data is one of the first problems. Too much data and not contextual or irrelevant. Starting with reports, tables and spreadsheets, as is often the case, it is easy to get lost in the numbers and lose sight of the purpose of the presentation. The latter is in fact a different form of communication from a working table where one can work on a document.
In the case of data, then, the visual aspect is crucial. Graphic representation plays a crucial role in the success or failure of such a presentation. Some basic concepts of visual media design can make an otherwise counterproductive representation effective.
Avoiding the most common mistakes, some of which come naturally, is not enough. If we really want to present data in a way that effectively conveys a message to the audience, we must do more. Making data interesting to them is one of the keys to success.
Who is it for?
Budgets, sales results, market segmentation, financial exposure, you name it. Anyone doing internal or external presentations where they communicate data to inform, persuade or motivate an audience to action.
Objectives of the days
The programme is based on a method that is simple to follow and easy to apply every single time.
Working on concrete examples we will see how to understand and put into practice:
✔ the 6 basic steps for successfully presenting data
✔ how to get the key message across
✔ adapt the data to the audience without altering it
✔ engage the audience.
Why is Presenting data effectively particularly beneficial?
The first advantage of the programme is that it is not a course but rather a workshop where each participant works in their own context and applies the concepts to their own reality.
✔ Each participant works on his or her own data.
✔ The focus is on practical aspects and concrete and achievable results during the day
✔ The presentation sessions allow the concepts to be applied immediately and discussed with the audience.
✔ Each participant is given an initial benchmark and visual proof of progress at the end of the day
✔ The interactive environment is enriched by the experience of Paolo Pelloni who has helped hundreds of people improve themselves over more than 25 years.
The course can be organised on company premises or in an external facility. The recommended number of participants is between 4 and 7, the maximum number is 10.
