Seriously, I am so excited!
And no, this is not an April fool’s joke! This is an actual picture of Ken, Miguel and me from a few hours ago.
Introducing Skillwave Training
Today I am super excited to announce that I am teaming up with Power BI/Power Query/Excel gurus Ken Puls and Miguel Escobar (of M is for Data Monkey fame) to create a brand new online learning destination for everything Power BI, Power Query, Power Pivot and Excel.
Why The Timing is Right
The world has changed so much over the last 5 years, let alone the last 5 weeks. When I started my company Excelerator BI, Power BI wasn’t even a thing. Originally I was teaching Power Pivot for Excel to a bunch of Excel braniacs that were early adopters into the brave new world of self service BI. In the 5 years that followed, Microsoft has asserted its leadership in both the self service and enterprise BI space. No one could be happier about that than Ken, Miguel and me.
Ken and I have been wanting to do something more formal together for some time, and we had a lot of time to chat during our recent world tour. Ken bounced the idea to me of joining forces with him and Miguel to do something way better than we could each do on our own. And then came CV-19, and all of a sudden everything headed online at a pace never seen before. We were already well into talks about how to build the best quality, digital online training destination for Power BI; CV-19 just made it more compelling to go faster.
What is Skillwave, anyway?
There are plenty of resources to learn on the web, and not all of them are of the same depth, breadth and quality. Our vision is that Skillwave will be the best and most trusted online training and learning resource for the Microsoft BI stack (primarily, but not limited to Power BI, Power Query and Excel). The learning content will be developed by the best in the field meaning you can be assured you will learn the right skills, the right way, first time around.
If you are a professional that wants to fast track your career and learning, then Skillwave will be the best resource for you.

Ken, Miguel and I plan to launch the new site in the next few weeks. If you want to stay up to date with further announcements about Skillwave, please visit our website (where you will find a button to subscribed).
