Charts are one of the best ways to get your point across.. They are a great form of visual communication because they show the trend or pattern in data, along with the data itself. Because the data that leads to a conclusion is shown alongside that conclusion, they are highly convincing if done right.

Creating Charts for Presentations

  1. 1. CREATING CHARTS FOR PRESENTATIONS .
  2. 2. Charts are one of the best ways to get your point across.. They are a great form of visual communication because they show the trend or pattern in data, along with the data itself. Because the data that leads to a conclusion is shown alongside that conclusion, they are highly convincing if done right. Charts are an important aspect of most business presentations. But what many fail to miss is that the charts you use to come up with your conclusions aren’t necessarily the same ones you should include in your presentation. . PRESENT YOUR DATA THE RIGHT WAY VISUALIZE
  3. 3. 1 ANALYZE To begin with, the process of analysis and data exploration often involves creating many charts. Most of these charts probably won’t show anything significantly interesting, so they should never be used in a presentation. You should narrow down your selection of charts to just the few that convey an SORT interesting point. THROUGH IMPORTANT DATA
  4. 4. FOCUS 2 Charts used in analysis have a few differences from charts built for presentations. Exploratory charts don’t have conclusions embedded in them, but presentation charts make a point. The axes labels, title, and legends all work together to help show the viewer the point. Its also a good idea to call out the specific point you want your audience to focus on.

  5. 5. FILTER Charts for presentations shouldn’t include as many data points as a chart for analysis. Be responsible when deciding to remove data that isn’t part of the point you are trying to make. Don’t just remove data because it challenged your conclusion. Increase between Q3 and Q4 Q1 - ‘13 Q2 - ‘13 Q3 - ‘13 Q4 - ‘13 Q1 - ‘14 Q2 - ‘14 Q3 - ‘14 Q4 - ‘14 *This would be unneccesary data if the point you are making is only about Q3 and Q4 in 2014. $50 $40 $30 $20 $10 Millions of US Dollars +181% 3CHOOSE WHAT DATA TO INCLUDE
  6. 6. 4 MAKE ALL CHARTS AND TEXT LARGER Design your charts for the scale in which they’ll be viewed. Projectors are notorious for reproducing color poorly, and distance can make text hard to read, so increase everything. Fonts should be huge, line weights should be thick, and color contrast should be high. A good check is to zoom way out on your charts and see if you can still read them well. INCREASE BETWEEN Q3 & Q4 Q3 - ‘14 Q4 - ‘14 $50M $40M $30M $20M $10M +181% SCALE vs. Increase Between Q3 and Q4 Q3 - ‘14 Q4 - ‘14 $50M $40M $30M $20M $10M +181%
  7. 7. Overall, keep in mind that charts are powerful tools and they can work especially well in presentations. With attention to design, and a focused scope, a chart can go from the slide you skip over to the slide that drives your point home.
