The Power of 3 – Data Visualization With Ann K. Emery

Webinar Prices

multiple computer devicesHas your data made it to important meetings only to be tossed aside and soon forgotten about? Your nonprofit's data warrants an attentive audience to ensure that the people your data reflects are receiving the assistance they deserve. During the upcoming Power of 3 series, Ann K. Emery will describe how to transform technical findings into simple, sophisticated visuals.

In Great Graphs, you'll move beyond overused charts and learn how to format a new chart so that your message stands out.

In Powerful Presentations, you’ll reduce Death by PowerPoint and engage your audiences during staff meetings, board meetings, and conference presentations.

In Dashboard Design, you'll build a one-page dashboard that gets right to the point so that leaders can understand the numbers and then take action.

Join us for all three workshops in the Power of 3 series or as stand-alone learning opportunities. The deadline to register for all three is Thursday, February 13, 2020.


LIVE Workshop: Great Graphs - Tell Your Nonprofit's Story With Engaging Data Visualization 

“I need to simplify reports without losing important details!” “I create boring charts using Excel's standard templates. I know there are ways to make them look better, but I don't know how to start.”

Does this sound familiar? If so, our Great Graphs online workshop may be for you.

In this 90-minute workshop, Ann K. Emery will walk you through a step-by-step design process so you can apply critical thinking skills to your own projects. 

First, you'll learn how to customize your visualization for your audience. Second, you'll learn how to choose the right chart for your message. You'll see familiar friends like pie charts and bar charts as well as new options like waffle charts, Sankey diagrams, tree maps, social network maps, and visual timelines. Third, you'll declutter your visuals; reinforce your branding with custom color palettes and typography. You’ll even increase accessibility by ensuring that your visuals are legible for people with color vision deficiencies. Finally, you'll learn to tell a story through saturation and annotation. Who said data has to be boring? This webinar will be held on Thursday, February 13, 2020.

LIVE Workshop: Powerful Presentations - Design and Deliver Presentations for Maximum Impact

“I am looking for tools and tricks for making complicated data and information look exciting and compelling for a range of audiences.” “My biggest goal is to disseminate our findings more widely with staff, which means learning how to communicate data to folks who often don't consider themselves ‘data people.’” “I am struggling with how to make my slides less text-driven.”

Does this sound familiar? If so, our Powerful Presentations online workshop may be for you.

Do you need to communicate data in a variety of formats, from full-length reports, to one-pagers, to infographics, to live presentations with slides? In this 90-minute training, Ann K. Emery will go over a dozen techniques for delivering effective data presentations. You will learn how to avoid Death by PowerPoint, craft your presentation’s takeaway points so that your key findings stick, include a variety of visuals to make your content more memorable, color-code your content so that your audience knows when a new segment is beginning, and storyboard your slides to hold your audience’s attention. You’ll also learn how to improve your presentation’s accessibility. This webinar will be held on Thursday, March 5, 2020.

LIVE Workshop: Dashboard Design - Build Easy-to-Follow Dashboards for Your Nonprofit's Leaders

“I'm the Executive Director and I report to the board. I tried an Excel style dashboard but it needs improvement.” “I struggle to adapt dashboards for different audiences. When I ask a stakeholder what type of data they need to drive decision-making, they practically shrug their shoulders and leave it up to me. I make the best decisions I can and hope for the best.” “I want to design scorecards and corporate KPI reports that people are interested in reading."

Does this sound familiar? If so, our Dashboard Design online workshop may be for you.

In this 90-minute workshop, which focuses on building static one-page handouts or dashboards inside of spreadsheet programs like Excel, you’ll see sample dashboards from organizations like yours. Ann K. Emery will share the story behind each dashboard so that you can learn about the dashboard’s audience and goals. For example, some of the dashboards were designed to track progress towards goals. Other dashboards were designed to help organizations compare their different program areas. You can decide which elements of each dashboard would be most applicable to your own work. Then, we’ll build a static dashboard inside of Microsoft Excel. These dashboards will live inside of Excel and get shared with stakeholders as PDFs through email or as printed handouts during meetings. This webinar will be held on Thursday, March 19, 2020.

Each webinar is 90 minutes
