Testimonial 1
Not all visualization experts truly understand the nonprofit sector. We would recommend DVN. We think there is a community of smaller nonprofits which may lack internal capacity for visual storytelling and would definitely benefit from DVN and Amelia's thoughtful work. Very professional, very timely and responsive, and very friendly!
-Laura Young, Associate, The John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation
Testimonial 2
I would recommend DVN to anyone struggling with gaining insights from their data. DVN was able to help our client extract value out of their data. By creating an interactive dashboard, DVN helped my client see patterns that otherwise might have been unknown. They exceeded expectations by not only creating the perfect dashboard, but by guiding the client through the development process in a nearly effortless manner.
-Kevin Lyons, Associate, Research Supervisor, Lipman Hearne
Testimonial 3
I highly recommend Amelia Kohm of Data Viz for Nonprofits. She skillfully led an incredibly engaging data visualization workshop for our group of over 40 nonprofit leaders. Both the board and staff participants found the presentation and exercises engaging and immediately applicable to their work. Evaluations of the workshop were extremely positive: “The light bulb was lit during this presentation,” wrote one participant, “I now have a clearer plan on how to present data.” Others commented: “As someone who loves data, I still learned something and really enjoyed it!” and “I now have many ideas to consider moving forward.” I enjoyed working with Amelia. She was prompt, responsive, and open to tailoring the workshop to our needs.
-Rebecca Cacayuran, Program Officer, Evanston Community Foundation
