Virtual Debate: Numbers versus Message
As financial modellers, we know that getting the numbers right is critical, and being able to build an accurate and reliable model is the cornerstone of any good financial modeller’s skillset. But what about the message shown by the numbers and the stories they have to tell us? Getting the message across to stakeholders and decision-makers is key and if no one understands the message told by the numbers, your hard work on the financial model goes to waste. So, when putting together a finance presentation, which should you focus on; Numbers, or Message?

Join us for this special event in our virtual meetup series to hear from visualisation consultant and data storyteller Kat Greenbrook and financial modelling specialist Lance Rubin as they go head to head and debate on the importance of getting the numbers right versus showing their message.

This special event is hosted and moderated by Danielle Stein Fairhurst, but you, the audience get to decide who wins the debate! Who will it be? Register to tune in live as these two experts in their fields argue their points of view and cast your vote during this interactive online session.
