Kat Greenbrook
Do you feel uncomfortable when someone asks you to make your data tell a story? You might associate storytelling with words like “fictional”, “emotional”, or “creative” and wonder how they relate to talking about data. The term “storytelling” has been adopted by many fields. Storytelling in business is different from storytelling in the film industry, which is different again from fine arts storytelling. Despite these differences, all storytelling has one thing in common: it’s a form of communication to evoke an emotion or action. Data storytelling communicates business stories using the language of data insights. It serves as a bridge, connecting the world of data analytics with the realm of business stakeholders. In her talk, Kat will show you her method of finding a story from data.
