Turning Data Into Brand Stories

These days we have more data than ever, but to make that data worth anything, you have to know how to discern the signal from the noise. Most important to remember, it’s not how much you know, but what you do with it.

In short, it’s never been more critical to hone your skills for turning data into stories.

On October 24, join Robin Hafitz, CEO, Open Mind Strategy, who will explore how to go beyond swimming in numbers to telling effective, data-driven stories.

You’ll learn through examples about the importance of context, best practices, and how to avoid mistakes.

Key takeaways:

  • How to marry quantitative and qualitative data to tell a relevant story
  • Visualizing data to back up your story
  • What to do with the data that “doesn’t fit”
  • Effective narrative strategies that make your storytelling more memorable
  • The “selling power” of storytelling.

Whether you’re a die-hard mathematician or a numerophobe, you’ll walk away inspired to use new ways to bring clear and compelling stories to your clients, colleagues and target audiences.

Who should attend:

  • Mid-level Strategists and Account Managers who want to improve skills in written and storytelling presentations
    • Junior Strategists and Account Managers will get a taste of how data can be made more business-driving and compelling, and be inspired to learn more
    • Senior Agency Leaders and Managers from all departments will learn tricks and tips they can pass to their teams, best practices to aim for, and ideas for how their agency can differentiate its approach.
