We’ve heard so much about the importance of storytelling over the past few years that using data, statistics, and research in our presentations seems to have been sidelined.

However, data can play a very important role in helping people understand what’s going on and what’s possible.

Data can be used to tell stories and to affect change.

This is a fantastic conversation with my guest Monique Ositelu, PhD, who runs a data-consulting firm that helps educational institutions, non-profits, and companies leverage their data into useful strategic insights to curate actionable solutions. 

In this episode, Monique and I talk about:

  • The stories she heard growing up and how they impacted her
  • Why and how to use data in your presentations
  • How to tell stories using data
  • How Monique humanizes the data she analyzes
  • Specific strategies you can use when presenting data, charts, and graphics
  • The research Monique did for her dissertation on collegiate athletics, education and race, using data
  • How Monique is sharing her thought leadership message
