They rely on you to give them a clear and convincing voice.” With the influx of data and introduction of self-service analytics tools, we're going to need more people capable of communicating insights effectively. The next generation of data storytellers will not be limited to just analysts and data scientists. Everyone will need to know how to tell a story with numbers.

These 10 short interactive films are amazing. They are all unqiue, employing different methods for viewers to engage with the story.

 

My colleague Mark Goldman reminded me of this piece. I'd seen it earlier but not had the time to dig into it. I took the time today to do so, and am glad I did. I think you will be amazed also.

 

Enjoy the many ways stories can be told -- especially using different techniques and technologies. You don't need all these bells and whistles, but I bet you'll get ideas for ways you want to share some of your stories.
