Soar Beyond the Dusty Shelf Report

Most "professional" reports are too long, dense, and jargony. Transform your reports with these practical tips.

I used to write hundred-page reports...

I was trained to write lengthy reports filled with statistical jargon. Important information sat around and gathered dust.

Now, I design reports that people actually want to read.

Fewer paragraphs. More graphs. My audience can understand the information, so the data actually gets used.

3,600+ participants from around the globe

have already taken the leap into better reports, slideshows, dashboards, and infographics.

This is our mini course. We have full-length courses available on data analysis, data visualization, dashboards, and slideshows.

This is a mindset course. That’s why we’re making it available to everyone—because this is the course that helps you think strategically at the beginning of your data project.

What's included in this mini course?

You'll gain practical techniques that you can apply immediately to improve your visuals.

Each year, I lead dozens of in-person workshops for thousands of people. My online courses bring those skills to you, too.

Depict Data Studio also consults to the United Nations, State Department, and Centers for Disease Control, plus dozens more foundations, nonprofits, film companies, banks, hospitals, and universities worldwide.

Your data deserves to be out in the world--actionable, talked about, used--not gathering dust in spreadsheets.

What does an online course look like inside?

I talk with you like a real person, not a monotone robot reading off a boring script.

"These techniques are going to be extremely helpful in my future report writing. I know that I am going to have a wide range of audiences as I pursue a career in industrial engineering. Looking at every possible perspective, setting up concentric circles, and organizing audiences seem like no-brainers now, whereas before they could have easily been overlooked. Thank you for creating this awesome resource!"
