Coloring Communication with Data

On Tuesday 28th of January, JumpStart Georgia will be hosting an exciting all-day event ‘Coloring Communication with Data’ at the Europe House in central Tbilisi.

The way data is framed and presented visually can help sway decision makers and other target audiences in the right direction by giving weight and clarity to your argument.
