Learn Data Storytelling with Bill Shander


If data is a critical part of your content - thought leadership research, surveys, data journalism, etc. - then you know that it can be challenging creating communications that break through the clutter and really speak to your audience. Whether you're in marketing, PR, thought leadership, content development, analytics, IT or consulting. Even if you're not doing the work, but you manage teams and freelancers doing this work, you need to know how to make your data sing. In today's world of information clutter and fast-moving technologies, it is absolutely critical to turn your data into visual experiences that leverage the mechanisms of great storytelling to maximize your impact. With Rock the VizComm, your team will learn to polish up their data communication skills in live hands-on workshops led by Lynda.com's and LinkedIn Learning's data storytelling expert, Bill Shander.

Testimonials

Bill Shander’s data visualization workshops have been well received across all roles and levels at our firm. Bill is clearly an expert on the topic and he is also a talented facilitator! His creativity and flexibility in the classroom bode well for true problem solving.

Bill’s class inspired my staff.  For example, he effectively led a critique of some draft visualizations, provided pointers, and walked the staff through a ‘before and after’ demo.  That “real life” activity, in particular, has helped challenge the staff’s creative thinking and transformed their process and deliverables. It was tons of fun!

I liked that it worked through current/living examples of how BBDO treats data visualization to an extent today and how it can be improved through the quick tips and tricks we learned in this workshop

As a predominantly business-to-business global financial company, our marketing communications can often be very dense and complex. Bill Shander does a great job breaking down these complexities into the most basic of human communications: Storytelling.  His 4X4 model for knowledge content helps us organize our thoughts from the audience’s perspective, separating “water cooler” moments from the “deep dive” to keep all content more engaging.
