Effective data storytelling


Data storytelling is a relatively new data skill for most people. If your team doesn’t have a lot of experience in crafting and telling data stories, it’s beneficial to be able to turn to a seasoned mentor for guidance, direction, and encouragement. Let me be your team’s data storytelling sensei.

With a monthly retainer of hours, different team members will be able to seek data storytelling advice that is tailored to their knowledge and skill level. Through different one-on-one interactions, I’ll share tips, best practices, and frameworks that can up-level the quality of your team’s deliverables. 

For each phase in the data storytelling process, they will have opportunities to brainstorm new data stories with me, review initial flow and chart designs, and receive suggestions on how to polish and deliver their final presentations. I'll also help your team avoid and overcome common challenges that could impede their success as data storytellers.

Effective Data Storytelling

Master the art and science of data storytelling—with frameworks and techniques to help you craft compelling stories with data.

Effectively communicating with data is a necessity in organizations of all types and sizes. It’s often the crucial last mile in the analysis process that determines whether an insight will inspire action. Transforming data into visual communication is only one part of the picture—it’s just as important to engage your audience with a memorable and persuasive story. Narratives are more powerful than raw statistics, more enduring then pretty charts. Effective Data Storytelling teaches you how to communicate insights that influence decisions, inspire action, and drive change.
