Your data has a insight. Let's discover it.

Storytelling has a 30x RoI. Leverage it.

Experts from gramener conducting data storytelling workshop for data scientists and analysts

This course teaches you how to find insights from data and narrate them as stories.

Data Storytelling Has a 30X Return on Investment

Rob Walker and Joshua Glenn auctioned common items like mugs, golf balls, toys, etc. The item descriptions were stories purpose-written by 200+ contributing writers. Items that were bought for $250 sold for over $8,000 – a return of over 3,000% for storytelling!

Stories are Memorable and Viral

People remember stories. They’ll act on them. People share stories. That enables collective action. We analyze data to improve people’s decision making. For this to be effective, data stories are needed more than ever before.

But Analysts Present Their Work, Not Their Message

Data scientists present their analysis – what they did, and what they found. That’s not what the audience needs. Audiences need a message that tells them what to do, and why. Told in an engaging way. As a story. That's Exactly what we are teaching in our Data Storytelling Workshop.

If left unchecked, data investments go waste. Data fatigue builds up. The digital divide deepens.

This course will teach you the techniques of how to convert an analysis into a memorable story, even if you’ve never told a story before.
