Welcome to this course of data storytelling.
Duration: 5 minutes and 55 seconds
What is Data Storytelling?
First things first, you’re probably wondering - what is a data story? We start by looking at a definition of data storytelling and how it works as a tool to encourage data-driven decision making within a business. Then, we take a closer look at the three key pillars of a data story - insights, visualizations, and narrative - and demonstrate how they work together to build an effective data story.
Duration: 8 minutes and 13 seconds
Why Are Data Stories Effective?
Now we’ve looked at the three pillars that come together to make a data story, we explore how they all work together to deliver the ‘three E’s’ - explain, enlighten, and engage. To understand how this all fits together, we take a look at a practical example of a data story in action, before finishing with a brief look at why it’s so important that you make sure your stories are based on valid data insights.
Duration: 7 minutes and 26 seconds

In this chapter, we look at some key things to bear in mind that will help you tell stories that are relevant to your audience and enable you to connect with key stakeholders. Finally, we end the lesson by exploring the benefits of using data storytelling to help improve overall data literacy and create a data-driven culture at an organization.
