What people are saying

“Technology creates an unprecedented velocity of data today. Communicating data in the form of a story infuses it with meaning and meaning drives action.”

Dr. Jennifer Aaker | General Atlantic Professor, Stanford Graduate School of Business

“In an age where we are overwhelmed with data, telling a compelling data story is hard. What Duarte has done beautifully is help us connect with an audience on a much more meaningful level. It’s a must-read for business storytellers everywhere who want to make a difference in their work.”
