Format: 30-45 minute keynote This program is perfect for: Senior management and Organizations that want to explore the role of data visualization in their business The audience will leave with: A solid understanding of how data visualization is a form of "knowledge compression" and immediately grasp its importance in both business settings and social roles. This program is a high-level view from 30,000 feet of data visualization and avoids heavy technical, granular details in favor of concepts that are easily digestible. Wes recently spoke on this program at TEDx in November 2015. Video from that event coming soon: Everyday, our attention is being fought for. We’re drowning in data from work, from home, friends and family, social media and leisure; even our cars talk to us now! But because of the way our brains absorb visual information, making information “beautiful” may be the key to living healthier and wealthier and just maybe, save the world. The 19th century was the century of the novel. The 20th century was the century of film. Now, we're in the century of Data, and data is, indeed, beautiful.
