What people are saying about Go Figure: Making Numbers Count

“Matt unleashes his passion for numbers–and effectively reaches others through them. I highly recommend his educational, engaging and entertaining talks.”
~Scott Flansburg, “The Human Calculator”

“Matt, thanks for your “Go Figure” presentation to the Chicago bureau. You raised some great points that reminded us all that numbers tell their own stories-and they better be accurate. The “Golympics” game was eye-opening fun about how many surprising ways good numbers can go bad and end up misleading readers.”
~Marge Michaels, Chicago bureau chief, Time magazine

“Matt, I’ve still got members talking about how you cleared up some of the mysticism of numbers for them and made numbers easier to understand. Your “Golympics” session was a big hit-one of my publishers called to specifically comment on that one…I hope we get the chance to work together again.”
~Jim Angell, Executive Director, Wyoming Press Association

“Matt, I enjoy our free-flowing brainstorming phone calls each month as we kick around ideas for the (magazine’s own Go Figure) column. Your ability to quickly analyze the level of interest certain data might hold for our readers is invaluable. It’s great to work with someone who can put his fingers on just the right number when we need it. Keep up the good work, Matt the Stat.”
