About The Event


Research is both an art and science—it requires creativity to generate novel ideas and test hypothesis, as well as data to support claims and draw conclusions. To communicate this effectively, researchers need to balance both aspects of their presentation.


That means using visual elements that are:


✅ relevant, clear and accurate, and;
✅ original, expressive and attractive.


In this virtual fireside chat, we will deep dive into the value of visual communication with our guest speaker, David Kornhauser, Director for Global Communications at Kyoto University.


Let’s discuss:


• Tangible benefits of enhancing the visual appeal of your research, as well as the consequence of failing to do so


• Common mistakes and misconceptions when it comes to research presentations


• The art of visual storytelling: transforming complex and data-heavy content into an engaging and impactful narrative


• Best practices, effective templates and tools



Admission is complimentary. Simply register here to receive more details on the fireside chat.
