HOW CAN HAIKU DECK HELP?

A stat chart is a great way to showcase a range of high-impact facts or data points, infographic-style.

TWO-MINUTE CHALLENGE

TURN THE FOLLOWING SLIDE INTO A HAIKU DECK:

Untitled Slide

Try turning this slide into a short Haiku Deck, with one graph for each point. If you'd like an example, check out ours here:

And if you'd like that slide all by itself for reference or print, click here:

Hints: Head to the background tool on the left, and then select the chart tab. Pick which chart you’d like to use, give your chart a title (or, even better, an attention-grabbing headline), and simply enter your data points.
