A Data Presentation Workshop

Data is everywhere now. People in roles that didn’t involve data only a few years ago, now find themselves needing to understand and communicate data well. The numbers you crunch, data you collect, and spreadsheets you wrangle are all in service of making business decisions. You’re incisive when it comes to data, but your mission is more expansive—it’s to find meaning in the numbers and recommend a course of action. In this workshop, you’ll learn how to articulate what the data is saying and synthesize insights to write a recommendation. Finally, you’ll use the language of data and story thinking to structure it in a way that creates action.

Questions & Answers

Have questions about what to expect at the DataStory Workshop?

Do I need a computer?
No. You don’t need your laptop because you’ll relearn to work with a pen and sticky notes. We call this working analog.
Can I work on my own presentation?
Yes! You’ll have the opportunity to revisit some of your key data slides from a presentation that didn’t go well. You’ll have time at the end of the class to work on these slides and get advice from the instructor.
Will you be teaching us how to create charts?
No, we have another course about Visualizing Data that will come out soon. This is not a chart-making class. That will be available via Duarte Online.
Do you offer this DataStory workshop for our team onsite at our company?
Yes! We’ll come to your office and teach your team how to build more effective data-driven stories. We always see increased confidence and better communication from people once they’ve completed the training. For an additional fee you can also have us customize work in your corporate template, using typical problematic slides from your organization.
