Making Data Persuasive

  • Make your graphic suit your purpose. Most people select a graphic that can encapsulate the most information - which is wrong in principle. You should not select a graphic to show data; you should select the graphic that best illustrates your point. Ask yourself, "What is the point I am trying to make in showing this data?" and select your graphic accordingly.
  • Make the figures real with powerful comparisons. For example, "The amount that it costs to feed one child in a village for three days is what you pay someone just to deliver your meal to your doorstep."
  • Put statistics 'in the room'. For example, "48 percent of the population is affected by this change. So, in this room (of 24 people) that will be eleven of you."
  • Use anchoring to your advantage. This principle proves that the first figure people hear becomes a reference point for subsequent figures. So, for example, if you were trying to emphasise the increase in efficiency, you would not say, "Our efficiency has increased 22% which is excellent given that last year it was 10%." Instead you would present it this way, "We have an excellent result in our efficiency. Last year we increased efficiency by 10% and this year we've increased it to 22%.
  • Deliver data most powerfully by emphasising the numbers and putting them at the end of your sentence. So, instead of, "This will produce a 25% increase in profitability." You would say "This will produce an increase in profitability of 25%."

 

Prepare the Answers

The different delivery modality means much more of your presentation should be focused on your responses to their questions. If they have seen your proposal in advance, try and look at it through their eyes. What would concern them? What are the possible incorrect assumptions they might make?

Data-heavy presentations will not go away. Information is not knowledge and knowledge is not wisdom. Your role is to turn this information-transfer into knowledge for your audience so they can have the wisdom to do as you ask.
