Speaking Engagements

For professionals who have to present numbers all the time, the quality of their quantation is an important part of their “personal brand image.” For others who have to present numbers less often, when they do have to present them, it’s usually because the stakes are extremely high. Either way, the subject of quantation can be a compelling topic for meetings where career and professional development are on the agenda. 

The session was a great reminder that we need to “keep it simple” yet informative for our audience.  Being able to present a story from a sea of numbers in a way that drives action for the reader is a key requirement of an effective CFO.  We will incorporate the key characteristics in a financial dashboard design class we are delivering to our customers at webKPI.

“Randall’s relaxed and personable presentation style made it easy to connect with the audience.  He brought the definition of “quantation” to life with useful examples of how we, as professional communicators, can more clearly present financial information.   I’ve seen enough bad presentations in my career to know that this information will be helpful to many.”
     -- David Gennarelli, Director, Investor Relations, Autodesk, Inc., and President, SF chapter of NIRI (National Investor Relations Institute)
