Bridging Data and Dialogue

Data Storytelling Essentials is comprised of six program areas that contribute to the data storytelling process.

Each element is essential to the data storytelling process, and all the elements are equal and necessary for the effective communication of data.

Each of the six Data Storytelling Essentials elements is unique and can be explored on its own. However, each Data Storytelling Essential is shaped by the other elements, and data storytelling is best understood when all six of the essential elements are understood. Each program area provides foundational knowledge, tools and actionable takeaways that learners can begin using immediately, and resources for further learning.

Data Visualization

Show don't tell. We give business leaders the tools they need to select and design their data message. Be the signal heard through the noise. Data visualization essentials include knowing the right tool to use to represent your data as well as the design elements that go into creating visualizations whether to find insights or to share them.

Data Narrative

The art of the science.  Data storytelling blends the design of visuals with the brilliance of data analytics and the art of narrative.  Part art, part science, we help leaders bridge the gap from simple data sharing to data storytelling.

Data Communication Planning

Clarify your vision.  Plan with precision. Start your data story by clarifying your precise plan.  Effective data stories start with knowing with whom you are going to be sharing it and for what purpose.  A precise plan is a guide for every other decision in the data storytelling process.
