Vidyarjan Nugget # 8: book titled “say it with charts”

Using charts in business presentations seems to be an easy task. Just put the data in Excel, which will give you good looking charts, which can then be copied and pasted in PowerPoint! So easy!
 
While the mechanics of using charts in presentations is as simple as mentioned earlier, using the most appropriate chart for communicating the right message requires good amount of thinking. The book titled, say it with charts, provides definitive advice on how to do it systematically. The author of this book, Mr. Gene Zelazny is the Director of Visual Communications at McKinsey & Company. That fact itself establishes the credibility of the book even before you start reading it.

Vidyarjan Nugget # 7: Google Primer app

If you are looking for a mobile app that provides bite-sized lessons for learning about digital marketing then you will find Google Primer app very useful. This app initially had lessons only on digital marketing but has added many new lessons on topics such as business planning, selling, and brand building.

This app is absolutely free to use. Though we have not read all lessons, whatever lessons we have read, we found them of high quality. The same content is not available on any web site. It’s available only in the form of mobile app. And yes, the lessons are not in the form of long articles but rather in the form of mini-cards, which you see one after another.

As the name suggests, the learning content is at the beginner level and does not have in-depth coverage of any topic. So it’s good to use if you need an introductory view of topics such as email marketing, analytics, and brand building.
