Learn Power BI from an Industry Expert
Industry leading Power BI training, coaching and consulting
Do you know what you need to know?
On the surface, Power BI looks like an easy to learn Microsoft tool, however what most people think they need to learn is often not even half of what they need. My live Power BI training course is conveniently split into 2 distinct learning days so that you can choose the level of learning that is right for you. Day one will teach you what you need to know to build reports and dashboards using data prepared by someone else. For those that want to learn more (e.g. business analysts, Excel power users), come back for day 2 and learn what you actually need to know to be good using this tool by enhancing the underlying data so you can extract the hidden insights.
What is Power BI and Why Should I Care?
Power BI was launched (generally available) in 2015, yet there are many people that are only just starting their own Power BI journey. I presented a high level overview to the Sydney Power BI User Group in 2021. I am sharing the video of this session here as a resource for anyone that is looking for a good, high level overview of this fabulous product. In the video I explain the capabilities of Power BI cross the entire eco system. You wont learn how to use Power BI, but you will learn what is possible and hopefully be inspired by the possibilities.

A client recently asked me if it was possible to build a Power BI report using data from a Microsoft Form. I have come across this question a few times now, and you could be excused for thinking this would be a straightforward task. Despite the fact that Microsoft has
To celebrate the release of the third edition of my book Supercharge Power BI, I plan to hold a live webinar this coming Thursday pm (US time), Friday morning Australia/NZ time. Sorry, it will be very late for Europe. I plan to cover 1 topic from my book, and I
One interesting trend I have seen over the last 12 months is the creation of a lot more non-technical Power BI content on the web. Adam Saxton and Patrick LeBlanc were early adopters of this format with their YouTube channel “Guy in a Cube”. More recently there have been new
I blogged about how to Build a P&L With Power BI back in April 2020, and the response from my readers was great. Several people asked how to add percentages such as % of net sales revenue, % gross profit, etc. into the P&L. I decided therefore to do a
