How many times have you had to sit down and go through a long PowerPoint deck full of facts, figures and charts? Do you remember many of them? If not, chances are the deck was missing a key element. A coherent story.
Storytelling has become an essential skill for today’s researchers. Our brains are hardwired to remember stories, and a deck full of facts and figures is hard to engage with and even harder to remember.
Researchers must embrace storytelling if they are to deliver real value to the decision makers who rely on their data.
