Telling Compelling Stories With Data Registration

Columbia University, Faculty House (116th St. bet. Amsterdam and Morningside Dr.), Room Presidential

We live in a data-driven world, where effective graphics are key to the delivery of information. When a graphical piece of information is done right, you can’t tell that there is design behind it - information flows to the viewer clearly and efficiently.

Join the Strategic Communication Program at Columbia University’s School of Professional Studies for a workshop and reception with Dona Wong, author of The Wall Street Journal Guide to Information Graphics.

In this workshop Wong will demonstrate:

  • How to turn data into a compelling, persuasive story
  • How to use graphics effectively in your presentations
  • The Dos and Don’ts of information graphics — common pitfalls and how to avoid them

Preferred RSVP by: Friday, February 10, 2017. For questions and further information, please contact Maryellen Novak at
