FIRESIDE CHAT: Data in Storytelling: Make Informed Decisions with Data Visualization

Data sets are more than the numbers that live in a spreadsheet. It is a language, an integral part of a story. There are a million and one ways to interpret data, but how can you create a narrative that leads to action?

Human beings by nature respond to storytelling. Data professionals should learn how to visualize data into digestible, meaningful, and well-researched stories that will resonate with decision makers who are data-illiterate.

In this session, topics of discussion will include:

  • Educating your data teams to learn how to appeal to the human psyche when developing storylines.
  • Learning about the ethics of data visualization. How can you ensure that reporting is non-biased?
  • Examining the future of data storytelling. How can AI and ML advancement  be used as a tool to develop storylines?
