Upcoming events

Speaking & workshops

I love teaching others new things, to open their eyes to something they didn’t know was possible. What I love the most is therefore to make others enthusiastic about something that I’m passionate about, which in this case is the visualization of data. To make them change their ways, even slightly, the next time they come into contact it.

Over the past few years I’ve created several talks that aim to inspire & teach about different facets of data visualization. From more general topics such as showing different ways to go beyond the default to create more effective visualizations, to the way to explain complex visuals through storytelling and the psychology of seeing and how that can be used to improve chart. But I also like to go in a but more technical to explain more expert points, such as how to take SVGs beyond the norm.

I also used to give the occasional workshop about creative data visualizations techniques, a day-long tool-agnostic workshop that dives into the total data visualization process and how to create more unique and effective charts. But I’ve decided to stop giving these.

Nevertheless, all my talks are filled with various forms of data visualization eye-candy to show the audience that there’s probably a lot more possible in the realm of data visualization than they knew. Especially in my more recent talks I’ve been creating interactive animations and visualizations right into my web-based slides, to get the best Oooooh impact from the audience (⌐■_■)

My presentations

Feel free to contact me if you’d like me to come and speak at an event, meetup or another gathering of people. Below you can see the current talks that I could give, hopefully one or more will fit with your audience!

I’ve given the following talks in the past as well, but I find that they’ve become too old or outdated for me to give anymore. Still I’ve added them here for reference:

Videos of my talks

Here are a few videos of the talks I’ve created over the past few years, during the very first time I’ve given them, which I feel is the most nerve-wrecking moment you can have with a talk. But afterward you also have the best adrenaline rush.

Past talks & workshops

Below you can find a list of all the public talks and workshops that I’ve given. I also give presentations in-house at companies, but I’ve only placed the company events below where non-employees were also welcome.
