Persuading the C-Suite Using Effective Data Presentation Techniques (Half Day)

(Half Day Workshop)

Despite its pervasiveness, data analytics is still a mysterious “black box” to many marketers. Rows and columns of numbers that are supposed to somehow inform marketing tactics often lack the related insights necessary to drive business decisions. Too many times, campaigns are stunted and go off-track because marketers either prioritize the wrong metrics or misunderstand the combination of tactics, channel allocation, and data.

In this workshop, we look at what can be the most difficult of all skills for working with data: presenting a persuasive case for action to senior-level decision makers. Many times, in proving a case for change, or presenting data that conflicts with traditional thinking, the analyst be a subversive party to executive goals. This workshop teaches you as the analyst how to navigate those expectations and present your data in a persuasive manner that aligns positively with business objectives.

Participants will walk away with a framework for presenting information as a report, or information as a proposal. Faculty show attendees how to develop an analysis of a given situation or campaign, assess the audience, and draft the best proposal. Participants also discuss the human factors behind effective data presentation [e.g., how to speak to your target audience and keep them engaged]. Finally, participants look at what happens if the result is no and discuss deciding factors on whether to regroup or scrap the idea altogether. The session will end with attendees making a data presentation to the group for assessment and feedback.

This workshop is part of the ANA’s Digital Marketing Analytics Mastery Program. Our Mastery Programs are designed to be flexible and fit your time and budget. These programs can be delivered over two full days or as a series of independent half-days.
