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.

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.
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.

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.
