Effective Data Storytelling for Business and Career: What, When & How
13. 8. 2020 @ 11:30 - 12:30 SMT
How do you use data around you to create an interesting narrative that makes people sit up, listen and trust you? We live in a world increasingly dominated by data. Data is used to make important decisions, to shape business and political policy, and to understand the fundamental workings of nature. But data can be complicated, mysterious, and difficult to understand.
If you’re a solopreneur or you work with brands, you need data to convince your clients or decision makers that you are fact-based. Instead of overwhelming them with number, learn to weave your data into a compelling story. If you’re a career changer and want to reposition your life, use data to show your experience to tell a story of their qualification.
Award-winning creative director and best selling author, Uma Rudd Chia will show you some great examples of what good data based story telling looks like. And give your some key principles you can adopt to develop the skill of storytelling with DATA.
By attending this webinar, you will: 1. Understand what data in its wholeness (busting data myths) 2. Know 3 key principles on finding insights and telling stories with data. 3. See proof that data story telling works – examples around each principle of brands or individuals that have done it right and succeeded.
