Why use PowerPoint Info graphic?
Preparing for a data presentation can be tricky. The numbers that seem ‘self explanatory’ to you – appear ‘confusing’ to your audience. Your ‘simple’ charts – sometimes can leave your audience totally clueless. The reason is – ‘presenter’s curse of knowledge’.
When you create a data presentation, you get so deeply involved in your subject that you forget to see your numbers from your audience’s point of view. You assume that your audience has the same level of knowledge and the context that you have. Your assumption obscures the message you want to convey.
A simple way to overcome this issue is to provide as much visual context to your numbers as possible, in your presentation. When you visualize your data, you are forced to see beyond the cold numbers and focus on the message conveyed by those numbers.
A useful tool that helps you visualize your data clearly is PowerPoint Info graphic templates. In this article, we will show you the power of info graphic template with a practical example.

The usual approach is to show the numbers as data table:
Or as a pie chart like this:
The chart doesn’t set the context to your audience clearly. Let us see how you can present the same information in a more memorable way:
You can show percentage composition as break up of a Dollar:
Of course, you can choose a currency appropriate to your country.
You can use a bar chart info graphic instead of a pie chart as follows:
The advantage of a bar chart is – you can show actual values instead of just the percentages:
You can get creative in your expression:
Thus, your message stands out clearly, instead of getting lost as ‘just another chart’.
