Picture Perfect! Turn Words and Data into Powerful Graphics
3 Nov 2017 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm EDT
Quickly turn your words, data, and ideas into powerful graphics. Attend this high-energy, interactive workshop to learn how to communicate even the most complex content in a way that is impactful and unforgettable. Get step-by-step instructions, practical tips, and tools. After attending this workshop, you’ll be able to make any complex idea easy to understand in three steps: turn ideas, text, and data into graphics, visualize and better communicate your solutions, make professional graphics that are clear, communicative, and compelling, and find the right imagery at the right price.
Each attendee will receive:
DIY Billion Dollar Graphics ebook
200 Professional PowerPoint Graphics
Graphic Cheat Sheet
Top Websites for Free or Low-cost Graphics
Bringing your own laptop is strongly encouraged but not required. When we render infographics, having a laptop will allow you to create your own. Please have PowerPoint 2013 or greater on your laptop to participate.
A light breakfast will be provided.
If you have time after the workshop, continue the conversations by joining us for lunch nearby. The cost of lunch is on your own.
