- Data Storytelling for Knowledge-Driven ExecutivesLink visible for attendees
In today’s competitive world, data analytics is essential for driving decision-making and ensuring long-term success.
However many are not trained on how to effectively translate the crucial message that data is telling, down the data value chain.
According to neuroscience, large data is difficult for our brains to comprehend and process. Also the more complex the data, even if it's in smaller doses, the more difficult it is for the brain to make sense of.
And because the brain cannot make sense of the data, it will store it in your short-term memory, soon to be forgotten.
So how do we make all data, large or complex, easier for the brain to digest? How do we get the brain to make use of the data to come up with effective strategies and solutions? How do we get information to bypass short-term memory and go straight to our long-term memory? How do we make use of the value of data?
The answer is this, by using Storytelling techniques.
Through storytelling techniques, you will learn to translate complex concepts or not-so-easy-to-understand processes toward achieving business goals.
“Data storytelling makes analytics understandable to everyone.”
We will be joined by cinematographer and director, Yule Osworld.
She will share with us how to create a Data Storyboard.
All Data Enthusiasts are welcome!
