This is just what the doctor ordered, I need to learn how to communicate better. I have a number of Giovanies in my life. I need to learn how to connect and excite them about the great ideas that I have.
I love this course. Many times data people fail to achieve what they actually intend to because they are not effective at telling the story that the data gives.
It is just the beginning of the course and the Instructor has strated well to continue keeping my interest intact.
Really relatable situations and tips to counter them. Thanks for putting this togather for us.
I am still learning but I like it. Totally worth my time and effort and resources.

“Imagine seven days from now you're going to this meeting, having prepared your data story. And instead of seeing confused faces in the audience, you see people nodding in agreement, people saying “yes, let's implement this.” You're presenting with full confidence, and the people around you clinging to every word you're saying. That sounds like a dream, doesn’t it? Turn this into reality by taking the Communication and Presentation Skills for Analysts and Managers course!”
