Effective Data Storytelling

Learn the fundamentals and frameworks so you can create great data stories.

Storytelling is the beating heart of effective communication. Without a good story your data is just a loose collection of tables and graphs, hard to get into and even harder to remember.

  • Fundamental storytelling concepts, considerations, and tools.
  • A set of four different frameworks you can use to develop engaging data stories.
  • How to choose the right storytelling product to deliver your data story.
  • Strategies for illustrating your data stories.

  • Forever Access!
  • A set of storytelling process worksheets.
  • A set of storytelling product Canva templates.
  • One year of office hours with Chris Lysy (a $250 value).
  • Access to Creativity Toolkit Mini-Sessions - Upcoming topics include - Single Panel Comics, Icon Arrays & Pictograms, Simple Maps, Timelines, Annotated Charts, Before & Afters (exclusive to workshop participants).

Hybrid structure:

  • The self-paced recorded lessons can be accessed at anytime.

How does lifetime access sound? After enrolling, you have unlimited access to this course for as long as you like - across any and all devices you own.
What if I miss a class?
All course lessons are available in a self-paced format. With a purchase, you also receive access to office hours for a year (where you can ask specific questions).
What technology will you be teaching?
I teach my design courses using Canva. This will give you the chance to design alongside myself through the use of shared templates. But all the lessons will still apply whether you plan to design in Canva, PowerPoint, Google Slides, Adobe InDesign, or with any other design tool.
What if I have never used Canva?
Purchase also includes access to a self-paced Canva jumpstart course. If you have never used Canva I suggest giving it a quick run through. If you are short on time, just complete the first 20 minute Getting Started section. https://www.diydatadesign.com/p/canva-jumpstart

Just purchasing through the Teachable platform is the quickest and easiest way to get started. That said, I can also offer a workaround based on your specific organization's requirements. Just reach out via email and let me know what you require > [email protected]
