Get to the (Data) Point: Focus on the insights that matter to build influence

October 24 @ 11:50 am - 1:30 pm

Please register using the zoom link to get a reminder:


Data surrounds us; reports, dashboards, spreadsheets, and complicated code. The list could go on and on. Getting data is the easy part. Effectively communicating the insights, actions, and value of data is the challenge. Translating those same insights, actions, and value for multiple audiences (leaders, customers, vendors) adds another layer of complexity. You can build value, influence, and impact for your organization by bridging the all-too-common communication gap between data teams, business units, and leadership.

Too often, reporting focuses on building impressive visualizations, dashboards, or models, leaving our stakeholders confused about what we need them to learn or act on from our data. The most impressive data analysis is useless without the ability to communicate essential takeaways clearly and offer persuasive recommendations. In this session, we’ll dive into:

– Effective planning options for ensuring you are sharing the data and insights that matter to your audience
– Simple techniques for building a sticky message
– Design concepts to ensure data visualizations support your message and provide insights at a glance
– A framework to effectively and efficiently use data storytelling concepts to drive action

Most importantly, you’ll leave the session with practical skills you can implement immediately.
