INFLUENTIAL DATA PRESENTATION Because just showing your data is not enough.

With so much data at our fingertips, how do we get an audience to see through the clutter to our core message? How do we make them focus on outcomes rather than numbers?

Why is data presentation so hard?

Why is it that when we show someone the cold, hard facts they still struggle to understand? Numbers we're so intimately familiar with are just jargon to those that need the information. Maybe:

 

  • you feel like people don't always totally understand what you're trying to tell them.
  • you're fighting fires that come from miscommunication, getting caught up in the weeds of a discussion rather than focusing on the point.
  • you need more confidence presenting your work.
  • you don't have a logical structure to your communications and there's so much going on in your head that you have trouble finding that clear through-line that helps other people understand you

Welcome to data storytelling

You've probably heard the term before, but what does it mean? Well, our brains are hard-wired from an early age to remember stories, because that's how information used to be stored. But how can you use this to make data interesting?

If you’re reading this, you probably want to be more than a number cruncher.

You want people to recognise the work you’ve done and make the correct decisions because of it.

That's where we can help.

How the Influential Data Presentation course can help you

This course is for anyone who is looking to increase their influence, engagement and confidence when presenting data. You will be able to

  • Hone your message and focus your audience's attention
  • Create beautiful and effective data visualisations
  • Communicate your findings clearly
  • Inspire Action

Whether you’re a senior manager presenting to a board, an analyst or a graduate, this course will help you become a more productive and valuable team member, which benefits your organisation and your career.

Most people rely on their software for their data vis without understanding the psychology behind communication. The trouble with this is that the most interesting story, the most valuable insights, can be made impossible to understand.

Why Group Coaching is the perfect fit!

There's tons of information on presentation skills at everyone's fingertips: books, websites, even YouTube. But when it comes to presenting data, nothing beats practice and feedback. You can find this with expensive private coaching or in-house workshops (which is cost effective if you have enough people), but with group coaching you get all this at a fraction of the price.

So what are you waiting for?
