Presidential candidates use statistics to claim the ability to lead. Matt Baron's guidance helps you to separate fact from fiction and detect data deception in the stories that matter to you.

This will be a Zoom webinar.  Upon registration, you will receive an e-mail confirmation including  a link to attend the program.

For over 20 years, Matt Baron has been a champion of numeracy, or mathematical literacy, and empowered audiences to grow their “numbers sense.”

With an eye on the current national political crossfire, Matt peels back the curtain on how he has trained thousands of journalists and other professional communicators to use numbers accurately, effectively and responsibly in their story telling. Through his engaging and interactive workshop, Matt empowers people to become more effective consumers and communicators of all the data contained in the stories that matter to us.

“Go Figure” thoroughly equips participants to become more vigilant citizens, from the coming Presidential election to a host of other decisions that, over time, can mean the difference between failure or success.

About Matt Baron:

A former longtime journalist for the likes of Time, USA Today and the Chicago Tribune, Matt has led workshops on numeracy to adults and children throughout the country, from Texas and Wyoming to New York, New Jersey and New England.

Along the way, this former syndicated math columnist and statistics researcher for Sports Illustrated for Kids has consistently issued warnings about the perils presented by our individual or collective misuse or misunderstanding of all things mathematical.

Permeating his interactive sessions is a zest for educating and entertaining others about numbers.
