Today I had the pleasure of iterviewing Cole Nussbaumer Knaflic who was introduced to me via my good friend and podcast guest @Luke Barousse . Cole tells stories with data. She is Storytelling With Data CEO and author of the forthcoming book "storytelling with you: plan, create, and deliver a stellar presentation" and best-selling books "storytelling with data: let’s practice!" and "storytelling with data: a data visualization guide for business professionals," which has been translated into a dozen languages, used as a textbook by more than 100 universities and serves as the course book for tens of thousands of SWD workshop participants. For more than a decade, Cole and her team have delivered interactive learning sessions sought after by data-minded individuals, companies, and philanthropic organizations all over the world. They also help people create graphs that make sense and weave them into compelling stories through the popular SWD community, blog, podcast and videos. In this episode Cole tells us how data people can quantify what are traditionally considered "soft skills", where professional development intersects with career development, and how you as a data practitioner can maximize your career through communication.
