I'm starting to work on content for a few upcoming presentations. The topic, of course, is storytelling with data. I find that one of the best ways to teach this is to show real world examples and the typically slight modifications it takes to go from a standard Excel graph to a visual that really conveys what you want it to for your audience.
I'm always looking for new material, so thought I'd put a request out: is there a data visual (graph, table, slide) that you've made or come across that you'd subject to a cole-critique and makeover? If so, please send to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Bonus points for including some context on the story you want to convey.
The fine print:
Please don't send me any sensitive data that cannot be shared. It's subject to inclusion in a presentation or on my blog. Sending the visual is your tacit approval for this.
Submitting a visual does not guarantee that it will be madeover (I'll choose based on the lessons I aim to teach), but if yours is chosen, I'm happy to share the madeover version with you.
I look forward to your submission!
