As data experts, a part of our role is data storytelling. A good data story is measured by the influence you have on decision making. The main components of a data story are the data, the narrative, and the visualization. A great data story is simple, relevant, credible, and engaging.

In this workshop, we will understand the impact of data storytelling and important tips for creating a great data story. Later, we will focus on visualizations and how they can enhance a great data story.

After this workshop, you will receive the tools to become a great data storyteller.
