The Power of Storytelling
Learn how to create compelling data visualizations that inform and drive action. If you want the ability to: tell a story or answer questions with your data, create compelling visuals that impact decision-making, and ensure your audience never leaves without understanding the key points of your analysis, then this course is for you.
This training is for you if…
You work with data and often need to share insights and findings with other colleagues
You want to know where the line between art and functionality lies to make compelling charts
This training is not for you if…
You want to learn about how to work with data in Python (check out the Python for Data Analysis training instead)
You want to learn how to build a dashboard in something like Power BI (check out the Power BI in a day training instead)
You are more interested in creating fancy charts that are only appealing visually, than learning how to alter a bar or line chart to aid your storytelling

Structured, to-the-point, good combination of theory and practical examples, very knowledgeable trainer who can explain concepts very well
It was a hands-on and tangible course. We could apply what we learned in a matter of minutes. The trainer did a great job of answering ad-hoc questions that complemented the material. We appreciated the fact that we could apply what we were taught directly to our company.
I liked every aspect of this training and would like to thank the trainers. They did an excellent job of explaining how to use Spark for data science. This is the fourth GoDataDriven training I’ve followed. All were great, but this was the best one so far.
Climbing a steep Python and Machine Learning curve in three days. This would have taken me months on my own.
