Data Storytelling Fundamentals Workshop

Cost: $299 per participant ($337.87 including HST).

Overview

Data. It’s everywhere, it’s evolving, and it is enabling no end of analytics and insight for the business community. Yet the feeling of data rich, information poor still prevails. And the cry to close that gap has also never been louder.

Data Storytelling holds the answer to this challenge.

When we talk about stories, we’re talking about the exchange of information and ideas.  In data stories, our ideas are driven by analyses and insights.  Effective data stories combine analyses, narrative, and visualization to tell the tale. But as visualization alone can be interpreted in different ways by different people, building an effective narrative is the means to get your point across effectively.

In this workshop, we explore the importance of narrative – your words and explanation – in driving action and change. Time honoured storytelling techniques are reframed in the context of data, and you will develop new ways of communicating your findings and connecting with your audience. You will leave a stronger storyteller, and have practical tools to support your storytelling practice on the job.

"The ability to take data—to be able to understand it, to process it, to extract value from it, to visualize it, to communicate it—that’s going to be a hugely important skill in the next decades." - Dr. Hal Varian, Chief Economist, Google
