Beyond Boring Bar Charts: How to Fool Excel into Making (Pretty Much) Any Type of Chart You Want

4,687 views

Published on

Tired of using the same old pie charts, bar charts, and line charts to tell your nonprofit’s story? Don’t have expensive data visualization software? Can’t afford to hire a graphic designer to transform your default Excel charts into polished masterpieces? In this presentation, Ann Emery showed nonprofit leaders how to transform their default Excel charts by leveraging a little Excel elbow grease.

These slides are from Ann Emery's 5-minute Ignite presentation given at the Nonprofit Technology Network's (NTEN) Nonprofit Technology Conference (#13NTC) on April 11, 2013 in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
