Inspiring Insights Data Storytelling Boot Camp

A practical step-by-step approach to deliver data and ideas that create maximum impact (even with no prior presentation experience)  


Why do some people effortlessly crush it in their presentations? And others struggle to get their insights across to a bored, distracted, and underwhelmed audience?  

The digital market is more competitive than ever before. If you don’t present yourself effectively, your work can quickly become undervalued and underappreciated.  

And you are far too good at what you do to have to deal with the overwhelm of trying to impress a room full of people who just don’t get it.  

So, how do you become the one who crushes it???  

I’ll tell you exactly what the secret is…  

Two words…  

Data Storytelling.  

Storytelling is a buzzword in marketing these days… because it works. Even complex ideas can be easily understood through the power of storytelling. Stories have been a cornerstone of every culture and society since the beginning of humanity. People pay attention to stories. We understand them. We resonate with them. We enjoy them.  

Data storytelling is the KEY to absolutely DELIGHTING your audience and inspiring them to take ACTION.  

The Secret to Effective Data Storytelling

I’ve developed a time-tested formula to communicate your data story and take you from zero to Hero in your presentations. Plus, it’s so simple to master because it all centers on 2 Key elements: Conceptualize and Visualize  

Conceptualize: When you can connect with your audience in a way they understand, they will be much more receptive to your message. Visualize: The most important, innovative, or valuable ideas can be lost if they're communicated poorly. When you visualize like a graphic and data designer, you'll be able to present your information in a clear, compelling way. Learning how to effectively communicate your big insights and ideas as a digital professional is the single most impactful thing you can do grow a successful career, a powerful personal brand, and a thriving client base. And if you are just getting started, a powerful data storytelling system is your golden ticket.

Meet the Expert

My name is Lea Pica, founder of LeaPica.com.

Over the past 15 years, I’ve risen from entry-level executive assistant to well-respected digital analytics director, to industry-recognized subject matter expert and professional trainer. It all started the day I realized I was presenting my analytical insights to rooms full of bored, disinterested, and skeptical stakeholders and clients. I couldn’t figure out the problem: I was using AWESOME laser-beam PowerPoint animation, stuffing my decks with chart after chart of interesting figures, and yet, total crickets after the meeting. So, I did what few practitioners do. I went on a 3-year journey to seek out the answer to this profound, metaphysical question: 

"Why do bad things happen to good data?"

I would go on to find all sorts of answers to this question, but the one I found at the root kind of surprised me: I didn’t know how to talk to my audience’s brain. You see, we all have different preferences and personalities, but the way our brains assimilate, comprehend, and act upon information is fairly consistent. But no one gives us the tools to do this well. Not in high school, not in college, not when we enter the workforce, and definitely not when we struggle through presentation after presentation in front of our peers, colleagues, and executive leadership...  

Until now...

My proprietary methodology and coaching program gives you these tools for success and has been a massive hit with my private clients.  

I’ve distilled neuroscience-based presentation and data visualization principles from the greats like Garr Reynolds, Stephen Few, Nancy Duarte, and into tools you can use every day in your work to get you and your big ideas on your stakeholder’s radar.  

My method has garnered me promotions, helped me survive layoffs, secured budget for new hires and increased analytical capabilities, increased my influence on optimization projects, and sent me repeat consulting clients.  

I crafted my flagship workshop around these concepts, and am now delivering all of the game-changing techniques and tricks conveniently over the web.  

Over the past five years, I’ve worked with organizations and practitioners like Starwood, TD Ameritrade, Kelley Blue Book, and Yehoshua Coren to take their data presentations and dashboards to the next level. 

My writing and videos have been featured on Moz, Search Discovery, and InfoTrust, among others.  

Where this content was once only reserved for companies who could afford to bring me in for 20 students, now any practitioner can access the valuable learnings in this training from anywhere at a lower cost. You’ll get the power of a live experience with me delivered right to your desk.
