  • SPEAKER: Bill Franks, Director of the Center for Statistics and Analytical Research at Kennesaw State University
  • TITLE: "Presenting Technical Information to Nontechnical Audiences"
  • TIME/LOCATION: 3:30-4:30pm online in Zoom
  • ABSTRACT: Many in the disciplines of data science, math, engineering or other technical area make a major error when developing a results presentation. Namely, they fail to distinguish between a detailed written document and a visual, live presentation that tells a compelling story. It is common for someone to develop what is effectively a technical document and then use that to present. This is a big mistake! This talk will go through some practices you can follow to ensure that you hit the mark with non-technical and executive audiences. It will provide a range of examples as well as specific pointers that can be used immediately.
