Friday lunchtime lecture: Leveraging data insights through storytelling

Friday 10 November 2017, 1:00pm - 1:00pm

Open Data Institute, 65 Clifton Street, London, EC2A 4JE

Friday lunchtime lectures are for everyone and are free to attend. You bring your lunch, we provide tea and coffee, an interesting talk, and enough time to get back to your desk.

Corporations are often overwhelmed with the amount of information they create. IBM estimates that around 2.5 quintillion bytes of data are created every day. The rise of big and open data has exposed the struggle to communicate insights to an untrained audience.

With the growth of open data, the challenge has grown from being able to analyse data to being able to share it in engaging ways. Applying practical steps can help you to use data in storytelling while creating a clear and convincing argument.
