the cat in the hat knows a lot about data visualization

I recently had the pleasure of guest lecturing a Stanford MBA class, Strategic Communications. Here, I've recorded a 20-minute segment from that lecture, which covers two basic things that you should do when communicating with data:

  1. Be sparing and intentional in your use of color, and
  2. Put your thoughts into words.

Check out the video below for some quick lessons and examples. Thanks, JD,* for inviting me to share with your class!
