Living in the knowledge economy surrounded by data how do you filter out the noise to process and understand it? Helping people and organisations to ask better, smarter questions so that they can get the data they need to surface and articulate the insights to their customers is what Sam Knowles specialises in. Decades ago, Sam fell in love with stories, story structure and storytelling. Now through a journey of humanity, empathy and purpose he shows us how data storytelling is all about using data smarter.
“Ask the questions to get the insights to tell the stories that balance in a human and an empathetic way the emotional with the rational.”
