I keep getting extremely positive feedback. People stop me in the hall to tell me how much they enjoyed your presentations. One person said it was the “Best Workshop Ever”. A lot of people have already started applying your recommendations to ongoing projects.

This is What a Data-Driven Culture Looks Like

It’s kind of funny how we all raced to become “data-driven” organizations years ago. We cast our data nets wide and grabbed everything we could. So much, in fact, that we began drowning in it. Good, clear, smart data visualization is the boat that keeps you headed in the right direction.

Time and time again, my private workshop clients are astounded at what happens when they learn the skills to present data effectively. In some organizational cultures, it can be hard to convince your boss that investment in data visualization training is worthwhile. They may have built businesses and careers on the old way of reporting. But that old way doesn’t work anymore (scroll down for more on my old way).

The smart, nimble, agile organizations I work with become the conversation changers. Becoming a part of the Academy takes teams to the next level, to the forefront of their field.

You can’t find this anywhere else

Trust me I’ve tried. I’ve searched for this kind of information across blogs and cruddy videos. I’ve gone to Udemy and Coursera, and none of them offer what I’m offering you now.

You’ve got questions, I’ve got answers (probably)

What’s This Cost?
You get access to this tremendous amount of resources for just $700 per year. The Academy is also perfect for organizations ready to build their data visualization capacity for staff, without the travel costs typically associated with professional development. Organizational accounts for up to 12 people cost only $5,000/year, far less than the cost of a one-day workshop with me - and you get year-round access, templates, and fun. Organizations who embrace data visualization demonstrate higher impact, make decisions more efficiently, streamline conversations, and totally change their game. Are you ready for the next level? Your team is.

$700 per Year Seems Expensive. What’s Up With That?
If your boss knew it would only cost $700 per year to completely renovate your communications, increase revenue, and build team culture, would she call that too expensive? Sounds like a deal to me. You could always ship yourself to one of my in-person workshops to get the same info - they are a blast - but this is less than the price of a single workshop AND you don’t have to pay for airfare and hotels.

Can’t I Get This Stuff for Free on the Internet?
Sure, you can find some of this on the internet. I’ve scoured it myself to see what else is out there and I spent way too much time on my search, only to discover I couldn’t locate even half of these materials. If you want to waste your afternoon hunting the internet, go ahead. But there’s a world to save out there. So it’s more cost effective for you to go to one spot where everything is at your fingertips - AND you get the personal connections with me and other people in the community.

How Is This Better Than Your Free Blog?
Truth is, I've been holding onto some of my favorite secrets for awhile - until now. Also, the Academy will build up your skill set toward more challenging visualizations. You also get access to me and peer feedback on your works-in-progress. There's other "fun" stuff too like discounts at my store and other "insider" activities and events. If you use the forums, you'll receive help on demand. Plus templates if you're short on time. All of these are things I will never do at my blog yet it's what makes my business so successful.

Who is Stephanie Evergreen and Why Should I Listen to Her?
I am an interdisciplinary researcher by training - which means I know data from every industry. I got my doctorate in 2013, with a dissertation about how researchers use graphic design research to make reporting more engaging (Summary: They don’t). I’ve steeped myself in the research to write two books and edit two journals on this topic and I’ve traveled the world teaching people how to visualize data more effectively. I’ve tested these ideas with the best clients: Verizon, Adobe, Head Start, United Nations, MasterCard Foundation, Rockefeller Foundation, Brookings Institute, Westat, American Institutes for Research, Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology, and University of Cape Town, just to name a few.

How Often Will You Release New Content?
Every month starting in September 2016 I’ll cover a new topic, complete with Excel video, R tutorial, forum thread, research article, and something fun.

Why Should I Join?
Research-based skill building surrounded by like-minded colleagues with fun and private events. What more is there in life, really?
