CPE Credits: 
Session Time: 
Sunday, May 6, 2018 - 1:30pm to 2:20pm

The need for more civic engagement is largely in opposition with the complex financial information governments need to convey. Visuals are excellent for effectively communicating intricate ideas and data in a way that’s accessible to stakeholders who are not familiar with accounting, financial reporting, budgeting, investing, debt management, pension, and other financial information. In this session attendees will learn how and when to transform data sets into visual graphics, such as charts, bar graphs, scatterplots, heatmaps, infographics, and more. Expert presenters will also explain how to use different tools to enhance your storytelling and increase audience comprehension.
