While advances in artificial intelligence continue to reinforce the importance of big data, the real value is generated when leaders draw insights from it to engage in data-driven decision making.

Join the Wisconsin School of Business for our next EdgeUp webinar: Storytelling With Data.

This webinar is designed to improve your storytelling skills by offering effective tactics to visualize data. You will build techniques and awareness to lead your team toward an approach that doesn’t simply track metrics, but explores data with a research mindset, distinguishes correlations in the data from causal relationships, and enhances data-driven communications.

In this webinar, you will:

  • Appreciate the importance of generating data insights in modern data analytics and the value of making data-driven decisions.
  • Use appropriate data visualization and graphing approaches.
  • Develop a research mindset to overcome cognitive biases to get the most out of available data.
  • Develop skills to effectively communicate and “tell a story” with data.

All alumni and friends are welcome to attend this webinar.
