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.

what they're saying


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.

Bill Shander’s workshop was perhaps the most highly praised workshop our department’s staff training committee organized this year. Bill was happy to work closely with us before the workshop to help tailor its contents to make it more relevant for our organization’s communications objectives and staff’s current skill level. Everyone left the day energized and more confident in their ability to tackle future data visualization projects.

We invited Bill to come share his expertise with 24 members of public affairs and stakeholder relations teams. Bill customized a dynamic workshop specific to our needs. Bill provided a format that was engaging, educational, and inspirational. Our team is excited to put to practice his methodology and tools including his memorable acronyms for distilling messages!
