Presenting data to a non-technical audience

What if there was an easy way to generate interesting charts to keep your audience focused?


Practitioner Presentation
Wednesday, Nov. 1 Location Code
9:30am-10:15am Huntington Convention Center WS/22



When reporting on the results of a time study or a failing process, we complete our analysis and show the results. Can your audience relate to the data? Do they understand the content and the reason for it? Hear from Brent Weichers in this presentation on presenting data to a non-technical audience.


What we often see in Excel is a straightforward chart of an analysis that displays complex data. It could be a KPI of cost savings for a group (a group you know is composed of racing enthusiasts.) So, why not display a racecar-themed KPI chart? Could that help keep the group interested?

In this session, Brent Weichers will review ways to measure the audience and build presentations to help keep the audience's focus. Then, he'll review examples of charts and graphs collected over time that help keep your audience focused on you. After the session, there will be a link to a cloud folder containing approximately 30 samples of fun and entertaining charts in Excel, including a drum machine.
