With all of the great work and growing interest in the field of data science, it has become very important for practitioners to be able to effectively communicate and present their findings. If you can’t tell or present a compelling story, all too often the value of your work is lost. Extraordinary insight will always remain ordinary if a participating stakeholder (your audience) doesn’t understand the data, the exploration, the outcome, and the opportunity.
This webinar brings together industry leading panelists to educate and encourage data professionals to learn more about the art and science of data visualization and digital storytelling. Attendees will also hear about the pros and cons of dashboards, infographics, and interactive visualizations. Whether your skills are creative, analytical, or both –this event will be invaluable as you navigate the future trends and requirements in the big data era.
