There's no one-size-fits-all approach to data visualization.

Graphs are supposed to be formatted differently for reports, one-pagers, dashboards, and presentations. Here's what my old presentations looked like: tiny text, mismatched images, and disorganized content. Yikes...


Transform into a Powerful Presenter

Over the past decade, I've delivered hundreds of presentations for thousands of people in 30+ states and a dozen countries. Ask me anything about:

  • speaking at conferences,
  • developing multi-day workshops,
  • delivering keynote speeches,
  • being interviewed on podcasts, and
  • presenting virtually over Zoom, YouTube, or through online courses.

What's included in this Mini Course?

I'm going to transform you into the powerful presenter that your organization needs. Here's what's included to make that happen.

  • Video lessons that you can watch anytime (the equivalent of my half-day Powerful Presentations workshop)
  • Discussion boards to ask questions and post your own work
  • Lifetime access so you don't feel rushed
  • Examples from a variety of industries (public health, youth development, education, juvenile justice, museums, and more)

Distinguishing Between Slidedocs and Slidedecks

You'll master a critical presentation technique: differentiating between slidedocs (standalone documents) and slidedecks (presentation slides).

"Your Turn" Activities After Every Lesson

You'll learn a little by watching lessons... but you'll learn a lot by actively applying what you've learned to your own projects.

After every lesson, you'll be prompted to post your own work. This is a great opportunity to get the instructor's feedback and learn from colleagues from similar industries.
