    ABOUT THE PROGRAMME

    STORYTELLING WITH DATA

    Numbers have an important story to tell. They rely on you to give them a voice’ = Stephen Few Stories are and have always been the way we understand the world, and yet storytelling is not an inherent skill, especially when it comes to data visualization, and the tools at our disposal don't make it any easier. In this course you will discover the power of storytelling to bring your data to life and convey your message compellingly. The workshop will equip you with the philosophy, principles and tools of good design that will help you bring more impact to the data you have or the analysis you have performed.
