“Data slides are not really about the data.
They are about the meaning of the data.”
Nancy Duarte.
principles to present your data
in the clearest possible way.
Tell the Truth.
As a presenter, nothing commands like credibility.
This is especially true when it comes to presenting
data.

is easier to determine
R&D’s travel expense?

charts below?

Get to the Point.
You need to draw some kind of meaning from the
data so that you can effectively express that
meaning to your audience.

Pick the Right Tool.
You’ll need to choose the most appropriate tool for
displaying your data.The most frequently used
graphs for business communications are pie, bar,
and line graphs.
Pie charts work only for
showing large differences in
proportion, especially
percentages.

Bar charts are visually more
precise than pie charts, and
can accommodate larger data
sets.

Line graphs are used to
track changes over short
and long periods of time.

Sometimes though, the best chart is no chart at all.
If you only have one key message for your slide or
the big message is just a number.

Highlight What’s
Important.
Keep in mind that the purpose of slides is not to
show all the data, but to communicate conclusions
and insights.
Think of a data chart in three layers
The background layer contains
elements like tick marks,
scales, legends, and grid lines.
The data plotted on the slide is
usually pulled from a data table.
The emphasis layer exists in
the foreground and clearly
highlights the key message
from the data
1.Background
2.Data
3.Emphasis
Data and Image Source: Slideology
Keep It Simple.
Do your best to avoid all unnecessary visual
distractions and the message will come through
much clearer.
