Go Figure: Making Numbers Count
April 10 Luncheon in Blacksburg
In “Go Figure: Making Numbers Count,” Matt Baron brings numbers to life and shares how even the math-averse can use them to inject life into stories and gain an edge on others vying for media coverage. With “Go Figure,” Matt also covers some of the most common math-related mistakes that can undermine your credibility and damage your relationship with clients and journalists alike. Plus, he caps it all with practical, empowering tips and tools that will help you not only secure media placements but gain a reputation as a go-to resource and mathematical maven. A big thank you to ND&P and Virginia Tech for sponsoring this luncheon.
