Course/learning journey

Storytelling with Data

Most of us rely on data in our work to support our messages and to influence our customers and stakeholders to take appropriate action. We may understand the implications of our own data, but it can become confusing when we try to convey the meaning and the message to others through statistics alone. To inspire action, we need to find a way of communicating the importance of the data to those who we’re seeking to engage. The best way of doing that is to bring the data to life by telling a story.
  • Explain what’s meant by storytelling with data
  • Combine data with a narrative and visuals to create a compelling story
  • Apply the three-act story arc to a business example
  • Training options for individual learners, groups/teams & organisation-wide

Most of us rely on data in our work to support our messages and to influence our customers and stakeholders to take appropriate action. We may understand the implications of our own data, but it can become confusing when we try to convey the meaning and the message to others through statistics alone. To inspire action, we need to find a way of communicating the importance of the data to those who we’re seeking to engage. The best way of doing that is to bring the data to life by telling a story.
Stories move us to feel. As a result, they also move us to act. They have the magical ability to fully immerse listeners so that they become emotionally, spiritually, and rationally engaged. When we hear stories, we’re able to recall key points and make sense of complex information more effectively. That results in a greater inclination to cooperate.
This workshop is about how to combine your data with visuals and a narrative. You can use this blend to get your message across in a way that not only informs people but also inspires and engages them.

This three-hour session is suitable for anyone who relies on data to convey meaning and would like to engage their audience more effectively by bringing that data to life through storytelling.
 

By the end of this session, you’ll be able to:

  • Explain what’s meant by storytelling with data
  • Experience the way we retain data information through storytelling
  • Combine data with a narrative and visuals to create a compelling story
  • Recognise the implications of data for organisational success
  • Apply the three-act story arc to a business example
