How to Engage You Audience with Visual Storytelling with Karl Gude  (Special Events)

In the comic strip Dilbert, Dogbert says, "Information is gushing toward your brain like a fire hose aimed at a teacup!" Nowadays, all of us are drowning in a sea of data. This means that there is a lot of competition for eyeballs. People trying to communicate their messages are doing all they can to find fresh, effective ways to engage and inform inundated audiences. Infographics are powerful tools that, through a careful combination of words and images, grab people's attention and make your message stand out. Infographics are uniquely effective at clarifying and summarizing complex information in all industries-from medicine and science to business and technology-and for all audiences-from policy makers to teenagers. Karl Gude is not only an expert at infographics, he's a passionate and fun teacher.

You will learn:
Why making information visual is better than words alone to get your message across
Some important steps to consider when planning a visual project
Types of data that are best visualized
The Dos and Don'ts of visual storytelling.
