Science has proven humans actually remember information better through storytelling.
We are the authority when it comes to communicating data through stories and everyone knows data is the basis of all modern storytelling.
Our workshops were developed to help you create an impact on your community and grow personally by:
● Connecting with your audience
● Communicating impact
● Creating action that drives change
There’s always a story within the data. Have you discovered it?
Hands-On Workshop Description
Research shows that facts are 22 times more likely to be remembered when wrapped in a story. Creating the narrative around your data gives the audience the context they need to understand the data. Additionally, visualizing your data in charts and maps can give a clear picture of the trends in your community.
LiveStories has worked with over 100 government organizations, non-profits, and universities to help them tell the real story behind their data.
This workshop and networking event will cover the art and science behind storytelling, steps to create an engaging story, and best practices for incorporating civic data into your communication. You’ll leave with actionable tools that you can apply right away to your next data project, whether it is an annual report or fact sheet.
In this hands-on workshop, you’ll learn to:
Transform your reports into persuasive stories with data
Create compelling interactive visuals highlighting data trends
Structure your messages to educate your target audience
Encourage positive behavior with clear calls-to-action (CTA)
Walk away with real-life examples of successful data storytelling
Measure the success of your data stories
