Storytelling with Data

How to Present with Impact and Clarity

Are your presentations putting people to sleep?

Great stories change minds, inspire action, and speed up decision-making. But a poorly crafted narrative kills the impact of your message and leaves the audience uncertain and confused.

Unfortunately, too many presenters bury their best business insights beneath mountains of irrelevant data and confusing visuals.

The result is a tangled mess of facts and graphs that fail to change minds and inspire action. The best presenters know that data should tell a compelling story, not bore your audience. Storytelling with data takes instinct and skill, and this powerful workshop will help you hone both and dramatically up-level your next presentation.

In this course you will learn how to:

  • Translate data into business stories that drive action
  • Simplify complexity without sacrificing accuracy
  • Visualize data so that it is memorable and effective
  • Avoid common mistakes in data presentation
  • Ensure your data results in better, faster executive decision-making

Course Includes:

  • Participant Workbook
  • Course Handouts & Supplies,
  • Certificate for PDU/CEU Credits

Warm and Inclusive.

"The class atmosphere was so inclusive! I often attend classes and don't have a sense of belonging, but did not experience that with this class. It was interactive rather than a lecture. Our instructor knew when to let us discuss ideas vs. 'instructing' us. Persimmon knocked it out of the park!"
