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.

Testimonials

Bill Shander is ahead of the latest thinking around data visualization and not only masters how to communicate creatively and effectively through infographics, but INTERACTIVELY, which is key to making them effective. Bill’s presentation style is dynamic- providing rich content while engaging the audience.

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.

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.
