Feel free to contact Ruth @ Information is Beautiful if you’d like to discuss a talk, keynote presentation or workshop.

I speak about data, information & knowledge, creativity, analysis, story-telling, the art & utility of data-visualisation, infographics & concept mapping as it spreads across business, tech, science, communications, politics and culture. My talk is constantly evolving as I fold in new material and make new discoveries.

Please note: Due to a busy schedule, I am no longer able to speak for free. Sorry.
Typically, I need about two – three months notice to schedule an appearance.
