Getting your message across quickly and clearly: Data visualisation, lightning talks and elevator pitches

Wednesday 10 January, 10:00–12:00, The Mercure Southgate Hotel, Exeter

Communicating complex ideas is a fundamental skill for researchers at all stages of the research process from applying for funding all the way through to disseminating your findings.

In this workshop you will learn

  • what to focus on and how to deliver it when it comes to short-form presentations like ‘elevator pitches’ for research funding and ‘lightning talks’ for sharing your results
  • how to effectively visualise data so that you and your audience can quickly and accurately understand it

We will be joined by Dr Farhad Allian (Research Data Engineer) from Sheffield Data Visualisation who will share his top tips on visualising data and giving a gallery tour of different visualisations.

There will also be an interactive section where you can learn more about Effective Tables, Interactive Visualisations, or Graphical Abstracts.
