I heard Elisa speak for the first time, earlier this week. The topic revolved around audience engagement via big data. As I consider myself to be far removed from a technology geek, I need the lingo on this style of topic to be dumbed down for me to fully understand. Elisa did just this, through a style of speaking that I would describe as academic storytelling – taking complex subject matter and converting it into lay person’s language wherever possible. I have just read the recently published book, Range: How Generalists Triumph in a Specialized World by David Epstein. I consider David to be an academic storyteller, along with the likes of Malcolm Gladwell and Angela Duckworth. The Data Whisperer is in their league.
