Cole tells stories with data. She is the author of 2015’s “Storytelling With Data,” a well-received guide to data visualization that brings strong design and the audience’s perspective to the critical need for clear communication of data and analytics within an organization.
Her unique talent was honed over the past decade through analytical roles in banking, private equity, and most recently, as a manager on Google’s People Analytics team.
At Google, she used a data-driven approach to inform innovative people programs and management practices, ensuring that Google attracted, developed, and retained great talent and that the organization was best aligned to meet business needs. Cole traveled to Google offices throughout the US and Europe to teach the course she developed on data visualization.
