Course Description

  • time 2.5 Hours

Data that sits in Spark or Hadoop or even a spreadsheet is not as powerful as data that is interpreted, packaged and communicated to those who need to hear what it has to say. Anyone who works with data needs to know how to effectively present that analysis to the people who will be making decisions based on the data. And it's not as simple as throwing charts at people. You need to create narratives and visuals that really connect with audiences. This course will cover data storytelling, data visualization and communications best practices - all with an eye to turning a raw set of data and converting it into a compelling narrative presentation that will resonate with your audience.

  • Christian John

Overall a good course on data-based storytelling though some parts got kind of boring and too theoretical. More practical applications could have been stated too.

Good training opportunity. Thanks Fiverr


Great course! I had some knowledge on the topic but Bill managed to make everything clearer. The knowledge acquired will definitely help me when writing content that includes data. Highly recommended!

  • Anneliese

The task if you choose to accept it... take boring data and make it interesting. Bill shares his lessons, tips, and tricks to make any data more marketable and with the right subject, I dare say interesting. As a nonfiction writer, it was definitely worth my time.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is data storytelling?

    Data storytelling is the term used to describe translating data analyses into layman’s terms so businesses can make a decision moving forward. Since more and more data is being generated through digital tools and apps today, businesses have a trove of data right at their fingertips. Not everyone is a numbers genius, which is why these numbers need to be turned into a story that everyone can understand. Naturally, this is a skill that is in high demand today.

  • What is data visualization?

    Data visualization involves the creation and study of the visual representation of data. A data visualizer will create statistical graphs, plots, and information graphics that businesses can use in business plans, investor proposals, presentations, and more. It is essentially the simplification of data in a visual manner that tells the whole story from start to finish at just a glance. Both data visualization and data storytelling fall under the study of data science.

  • What is the future of data science?

    Considering that data science is an integral part of big data processing, artificial intelligence, and virtual reality, it’s safe to say that the future of data science is only going to spread and expand rapidly. Right now, there is a gap between the number of data scientists in the world, and the amount of open positions.
