As those of you who read my words here regularly probably know, I spend a good amount of time teaching workshops on how to communicate effectively with data. Mostly, I do this for organizations who have recognized the need to upskill folks in this area (more info here). I also offer public workshops, where individuals wanting to build a foundation and skills in storytelling with data can attend.
I have a ton of fun with my public workshops. The energy and engagement of folks who attend is outstanding. The participants are usually a pretty diverse group, coming from different organizations and industries. Most have the need to communicate and tell compelling stories with data as a core part of their job. They typically have varying level of skills in this space—some have already been visualizing data for a while, while others are just starting out—and all have the common goal of wanting to do it better.
With my maternity leave wrapping up, I've scheduled public workshops for the remainder of the year, with offerings in San Francisco, Atlanta, and Washington DC in the coming months. I'm revamping and expanding content from what has historically been a short 3-hour overview of the basics to a full day of fun, where we'll cover foundational lessons for storytelling with data and practice applying what we learn through a variety of individual and small group exercises. These sessions are kept super small (between 15-20 participants, depending on venue) and are highly interactive, with plenty of time for questions, discussion, and interaction with me. Participants will leave the day having learned effective strategies they can put to use immediately, with tangible practical takeaways and excitement to further apply what they've learned.
Sound interesting? I hope you can join me. Feel free also to spread the word to others who may be interested. To learn more or register for an upcoming workshop, click here.
