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

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.

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

Bill is an engaging facilitator and very knowledgeable on the topic of Data Visualization. He has a unique way of mixing the lecture with activities to make for an impactful and hands-on learning experience. He also challenged us to think outside the box by providing helpful frameworks that are tangible and easy to apply immediately.

As an Analytics & Insights team at a B2B company, we are in the depths of data and analysis all of the time and can become disconnected from the needs and preferences of our audience.  Bill really helped us think about how to tell a compelling story and visualize data & insights in an engaging way.  He worked through specific materials with us and gave us tips & tricks that will help bring our work to a new level.
