Neil Martin Natixis Global Asset Management
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.
Rachel Richter Dun & Bradstreet
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.

Bill started with a highly entertaining and informative history lesson on data visualization and then took our team through several exercises designed to give us the tools to think about our data and our content more interactively. It was an extremely successful session for us all.
