Event Details

Finally! After hard work of finding, cleansing, analyzing, crunching and modeling your data, you’ve finally discovered great insights. Beautiful gems that will make the world a better place.

Now is the time to share and present them. Now is the time to make them shine with importance and significance.

But presenting data analysis results can quickly become tricky.

 Did you know, most of the time, data-oriented presentations are boring to non-data experts? (At least for the first 40 minutes!)

Did you know this was mostly due to three misconceptions most data scientists have about presenting?

In this lecture, we’ll explore those three misconceptions: “people will get what I say,” “people will get what I show,” and “people will learn more if I spice it up.”

We’ll dig into the reasons why those three misconceptions are indeed, misconceptions.

This will lead us to the land of the learning process, with a specific focus on our different kinds of memory systems, on the brain communication channels, and on attention and distractions.

“The most common communication mistakes? Relating too much information, with not enough time devoted to connecting the dots” – John Medina, Brain Rules

Come have lunch and discover what prevents you from effective presentation of your gems, and how to make them shine in everybody’s eyes.
