"Telling Compelling Stories with Data"

We live in a data-driven world, where effective graphics are key to the delivery of information. When a graphical piece of information is done right, you can’t tell that there is design behind it—information flows to the viewer clearly and efficiently.

Dona Wong will demonstrate:

—How to turn data into a compelling, persuasive story
—How to use graphics effectively in your presentations
—The Dos and Don’ts of information graphics—common pitfalls and how to avoid them

Dona Wong is the author of The Wall Street Journal Guide to Information Graphics. She is the former graphics director at The Wall Street Journal, where she was responsible for setting the graphics standard for all feature and breaking news graphics. Previously, she served as a business graphics editor at The New York Times. Dona is an expert in conceptualizing and producing information graphics that are easily understood by millions of demanding readers on a daily basis. In addition, she has advised Fortune 500 companies and major government agencies on strategic communications.
