English for Data Professionals
Easily discuss technical concepts.
Speak confidently in any situation.
Data professionals face incredible challenges.
Anton is a data scientist from the Netherlands. He works for an international company in the food industry and has been working in the field for 5 years. Anton is a very bright data professional. He began his career as a data analyst. He then continued to develop his technical skills and was eventually able to find his current job as a data scientist.
Despite all of his success, Anton still faced a problem. Quite frequently, he had to communicate with various individuals and convince them of the value of his data projects.
Anton always seemed to struggle in these situations. He struggled to engage his audience and communicate his insights clearly. He struggled when explaining complex topics to non-technical individuals. He struggled to convince skeptical managers of the value he was bringing. When he was looking for a job, he had similar issues during interviews.
Communicating in English only made Anton more nervous. He lacked confidence and would often ramble.
Anton knew that in order to achieve his goals and advance in the field, he must improve his communication skills.
From speaking with Anton, it was clear to me that he only needed to develop one essential skill:
The ability to tell stories.
I help data professionals develop excellent English communication skills.
I’ve been teaching English for over 10 years. I have a Bachelor's degree in Journalism and a Master's degree in Second Language Education.
I have taught employees of international organizations including Ernst and Young, Deloitte, Facebook, Volkswagen, L'Oreal, and Toyota.
Over the years I have realized that general business English courses have a problem.
They do not focus on the real needs of learners.
While grammar, vocabulary, and pronunciation are important great communication goes beyond this.
Accountants have different communication needs than human resources representatives. Advertising professionals have different needs than data professionals.
In order to truly help my clients succeed, I knew I needed to develop a curriculum that focuses on their needs. So in March 2020, I created a curriculum to help data professionals develop excellent storytelling skills in English.
My name is David Gates.
Storytelling is a data professional's swiss-army knife.
It allows you to connect with diverse audiences, communicate technical concepts clearly, and show the value in your work.
It will make you an indispensable part of your organization.
Here's what storytelling can do for you:
By understanding different storytelling frameworks you'll be able to tailor your communication to your audience and motivate action.
Storytelling can help you simplify your language and discuss technical concepts with non-technical individuals.
Stories allow you to present your insights and experiences clearly when giving proposals, presentations, or during an interview.
Here’s what former students have to say:
“I have never made more progress than with this course. David is a wonderful teacher that knows how to captivate attention, teach complex concepts and encourage participation. Through this course, I found an international internship, I feel more confident in English and I know how to communicate data science concepts well. I definitely recommend this course.”
"I started to work on improving my storytelling and communication skills in English with David in August 2020. I was astonished by the quality and brightness of his approach and immediately recommended his program to my friends. If you strive to be better in communication, either public or private - David will help you!"
