Why Data + Narrative?

Optimize the power of your data to more effectively persuade your audience, inform and educate employees, clients, customers and shareholders, disrupt the competition, harness new funding sources or win a pivotal argument.

Data fluency is a must-have skill set in today’s digital workplace. Success starts with knowing how to find the meaning in every dataset – regardless of its size or format.

Our intensive 5-day workshops equip you with a practical, ready-to-go toolbox of knowledge, techniques and strategies to become a master data storyteller – no matter your experience or skill level.

Deft storytelling skills are needed to understand and interpret today’s endless amount of digitized professional and personal data. Those skills are far more sophisticated than looking at a prepared dataset and creating an infographic.

Who attends our workshops?

City Planners, Marketing Directors, Engineers, Real Estate Brokers, Public Health Practitioners, Library Scientists, Accountants, Consultants, Public Relations Professionals, and Educators — just to name a few. There are few industries or professions where success does not rely on persuasive storytelling with data.
