Almost every job today involves decision-making with data. Once you’ve formed a point of view about the problem or opportunity your data uncovered, communicating the findings well speeds up decision-making, moves others to action and yes, advances your career. In this workshop, you’ll learn how to apply story structures to data, build a recommendation as a Slidedoc, and attach meaning to data so it sticks.

Engineers & Technologists

The data you work with may be solving some of the world’s most important problems, but complex datasets aren’t quickly understood or acted on by others. Learn to communicate data in a way that is acted on by others.

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.
