Laurel Hyatt is a multi-skilled, creative and award-winning communicator equally comfortable with editing, writing, and production managing. She has more than 18 years’ experience in several media, including books, magazines and the Web, with a strong journalism background.
Her practical approach to editing is evident in her seminar, Editing Charts. “Charts should try to impart knowledge, not just data or information,” says Laurel, who gives several reasons why proficiency at editing charts is a good skill. “Many readers will read a chart on a page first, or maybe only the chart. The use of visual information is exploding and charts are important to persuade the audience and for readers’ decision making. “
By the end of the morning, you’ll be confident about when to use the various types of charts or perhaps choose a table instead. Registration for the Wednesday, April 29, 2015, half-day seminar closes on April 26. Click here to register.
