"What happens in Vegas should stay in Vegas: honest story-telling with data"
Las Vegas, Nevada. It's a vast over-21 amusement park - and a masterclass in how to communicate narratives about data and statistics less than honestly. In this session, we'll consider how - and how not - to honestly and effectively share narratives discovered in data.
