Data storytelling is predicted to be the top business skill of the next five years.
Data Storytelling for Business delves into two indispensable elements of giving great presentations with and about data: effective data visualizations and designing a coherent and persuasive narrative around data.
The abundance of data visualization software makes it possible for anyone to make charts – this course will allow your charts to stand out in the crowd. Regardless of the tool you use, our course will teach you best practices, rooted in research, to enhance default charts to really talk to your audience. Applying Gestalt principals, and incorporating the science of visual perception, you’ll turn ordinary charts into stunning visuals.
We know charts don’t tell the story on their own – this course will also provide examples and practice in incorporating a storytelling approach to sharing data. You’ll practice how to identify your audience, select appropriate metrics, relationships, and visuals to keep your audience engaged with your data story. Most importantly, you’ll learn how to create a data story that is easily accessible and actionable for your audience.
In our interactive workshops, you will work on your own real business data sets and reports, and walk away from the course with immediate improvements to impress your managers and stakeholders.
This is our most popular course. It’s suited towards any professional, who works with data and charts. If you need to tell better stories with your data, then this course is for you.

The training was amazing and easy to understand. The speakers are knowledgeable in terms of what they’re presenting and they gave us new insights on how to create more effective presentations.
Isaac, thank you so much for the training course you delivered to our team. We’ve been through multiple trainings over the last year and this one was by far the best. The whole team is excited to apply their new data storytelling skills to our decks.
It was a very good experience. I didn’t know anything about data storytelling going into this training session, but now I realize that this is something I have been needing for the longest time. Thank you very much! You made my life and my work a lot easier!
Dominic is an entertaining and compelling presenter who is able to articulate complex ideas very clearly and succinctly. I run a startup, and we had a lot of challenges visualizing data from multiple sources. Dominic was able to work with me to design practical improvements to our dashboard that we were able to rapidly implement to give us a clear, cockpit view of the overall health of our business.
I had no idea that data visualization could be so fascinating and interesting. I really liked the part on the Gestalt principals of perception. Super applicable and what an engaging presenter. My visualizations will never be the same!
