We continue season 5 - "From Ideas to Impact" - where Richard Medcalf (Founder of Xquadrant) speaks with Davina Stanley of the Clarity First Program, to explore specific strategies that will help us communicate complex ideas better.
Davina Stanley helps leaders communicate complex ideas. Having started her communication career at McKinsey, she now leads a team of seven structured thinking experts who serve professionals of all kinds who need to communicate with greater impact. Her clients range from smart Australian boutiques to Fortune 500 companies.
Today we talk about the difference between ‘data’ and ‘insight’, which is key to clarifying what a powerful message looks like.
In this conversation, you’ll learn:
- Why organising information into categories is not enough
- What do instead of describing what the data says
- How to move beyond synthesis to Insight
"Synthesis requires us to work quite hard – to push beyond our basic human instinct to conserve calories"
