Data visualization can make the most complex story understandable. In fact, pictures can take the learner to a deep level of understanding in a truly accelerated manner. Executed correctly, the journey of learning the story of the data from pictures is both memorable and relevant.

During this workshop you will learn how to apply data visualization to tell stories that both amuse and educate your audience. To do this, we will follow the three steps of data visualization presentation: setting the story, the random walk of the data, and finally the memorable conclusion. To demonstrate this, you will see presentations of real-world data stories showing the application of these powerful steps.
