    Presentation: Data Story Telling, Discovering and Applying Genres for Data
     Ted Cuzzillo
    Story consultant / Content provider / Journalist

     

    Data and business are natural friends. They seem to bind more closely together every year. With improving analysis skills and tools, the two have become inseparable. Yet many business people still feel something missing.
    For many audiences, data cannot speak for itself. It requires help from the most ancient of techniques: storytelling. Storytelling has transmitted knowledge and motivated action in every medium we’ve ever known. Stories around a fire, stone tablets, Gutenberg’s books, news, and e-books have all made use of stories. Data is a natural.
    With stories as the vehicle and data as the payload, data can go far. Ted Cuzzillo (@datadoodle), longtime storyteller in the data industry, tells how. He will describe his six genres of data stories — the popular genre and the other five — and explain how to use them and for what occasions.
