Data Storytelling is the art of using communication and data visualization techniques to convey the meaning of the data in a persuading and relevant way to the audience. Data storytelling is the next step after data analysis. As data analysts, after data analysis gets finished, we need to convey our results to managers, stakeholders, or team members. This is where we need the art of data storytelling. If we are not good at data-driven storytelling, our audiences won't understand the depth of our analysis and the results obtained. Good data storytelling skills help the audience interpret our results more easily and make the best data-driven decision. Data Storytelling consists of three key fields of expertise: data analysis, data visualization, and narrative. We need to learn data storytelling techniques to combine the art of speaking and presenting discoveries to convey the results and meaning of data.
