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.
