Recent technology developments have greatly expanded how information can be reported. While finance professionals have many more options, the resulting tools can both enlighten as well as lead astray. This workshop provides the skills and lessons needed to learn how to build impactful reports.

This powerfully illustrated workshop provides practical tips on how to use reports to communicate financial results more effectively. It also examines the pitfalls of many approaches currently used. Learn how data visualization can be used to design powerful ‘brain friendly’ reports.


The workshop is designed to learn by doing through hands-on exercises to deepen participants learning. Attendees will:

  • Assess your current reporting to understand why we need to change.
  • Investigate how human brains work and use this knowledge to understand how to build reports that communicate more effectively.
  • Examine visual examples to see these principles in action and learn what makes reports more impactful.
  • Explore how you can immediately begin to put this knowledge to work building more impactful reports.

Attendees will receive a copy of the new book, Present Sense: A Practical Guide to the Science of Measuring Performance and the Art of Communicating it, with the Brain in Mind by Dr. Steve Morlidge.
