"Training sessions can be quite dry, but Fuaad kept us engaged the whole time. It was fantastic!"

“I found the event both educational and extremely entertaining"


This is a short, focused course designed for people who have never tried Power BI, as well as those who may have clicked around on it but would appreciate filling in the gaps in their foundational knowledge. The overarching goal is to leave participants inspired by the potential for Power BI to help them do their work better, and to entirely remove the intimidation factor we all feel when confronted with new software. 

This course will be especially useful to anyone who:

  • Analyses data
  • Has a role in cleaning or manipulating data
  • Seeks to build powerful, professional visuals to represent data
  • Needs to build dashboards for regular monitoring and/or key decision making

Key features

  • Experiential learning: participants constantly apply new skills directly in the sessions, with the instructor there for guidance and quick trouble-shooting
