Course Overview

Data storytelling is predicted to be the top business skill of the next 5 years.1 And with good reason – well told data stories are change drivers within the modern organization. But how do we find the most important insights in our business data and communicate them in a compelling way? How do we connect the data that we have to the key underlying business issue?

This course takes students from the fundamentals (what should we be measuring and why?) through to the elements of good visualization design (what does a good chart look like?) through to proficiency in data storytelling. By the end of the course, students will know how to produce engaging, cohesive and memorable data stories using Excel and PowerPoint. The course also teaches attendees the importance of producing statistically robust visualizations and insights.

“Took Data Storytelling, and it was insightful from start to finish. Combine a celebrated instructor, well-thought out material, an energetic and responsive organising team and awesome co-trainees from different backgrounds and you’ve got a great package. There is so much to learn in this wide field, and they simply nailed it. They made it such that even a guy like me who is not an analytics practitioner could grasp fully. This certification was worth the time, money, and effort. I wish nothing but the best for the minds behind this training course. Thank you DataSeer!”
