If a picture is worth a thousand words, then an infographic is worth at least that – and then some. Infographics, which are defined as “graphic visual representation of information, data, or knowledge intended to present information quickly and clearly,” have been around for quite awhile – like since 30,000 AD or so. What?! Yes, it has been said the first infographics can be found on cave walls, though the word “infographic” seems to have become common only recently.
Meeting planners, aka people who have little time but need a crazy amount of knowledge, seem the perfect audience for information that can be presented in a quick and clear manner. With this in mind, I have gathered a collection of information via infographics that you are invited to download into those wonderful brains of yours. Enjoy!
