Dave Wells, CBIP: Data Storytelling: The New Horizon in Business Analytics


Stories are powerful. We've used them throughout history to capture attention, convey ideas, fire the imagination, and stir the soul. Data can be persuasive, but stories are compelling. Blending data and stories—data storytelling—is a particularly powerful combination.
Storytellers are the next generation of business and data analysts. Data storytelling is a recent and important contribution to analytics, going beyond quantification and visualization to complement data with narrative. A well-told story that is interesting and convincing may appear quite easy on the surface, but crafting a good data story is challenging.
In this highly interactive session, you will gain experience blending the science of statistics, the art of data visualization, and the talent of verbal narrative to develop and deliver compelling data stories.
