IMA Virtual AsiaPac Conference

Strategic Storytelling with Data


Robert Chen will host a session on Strategic Storytelling with Data at the 2020 IMA Virtual AsiaPac Conference on Empowering Finanace and Accounting Professionals.

The IMA Virtual AsiaPac Conference brings together prominent industry and academia experts, where they will engage on critical regional and global issues. They will share insights, analyses, and best practices for businesses and management accountants to empower you to face the future with confidence.

Session Description
Businesses are increasingly using data to inform decisions across all functions. As this trend continues, business meetings are filled with data-heavy presentations that often miss the mark and are understandable only by data scientists and other technical professionals. Successful business leaders and their teams stand out by demystifying spreadsheets and telling a narrative around the data to influence key decision makers. In this session, you will learn best practices for synthesizing and delivering complex information in a persuasive and engaging manner.

Saturday, October 17, 2020
3:05 PM (SGT), 3:05 AM (ET)

This event is open and complimentary to all. Attendees can earn up to 3.5 CPE credits.
