What people are saying…

Intermediate

“The course was delivered at a reasonable time after attending the 2 day introduction which meant the learning was good reinforcement of understanding and helped to make the next steps much clearer. The pace was good and delivered with good consideration for those of us who were slower in taking on the exercises. Personally I would have preferred a classroom delivery as I find it difficult to continually switch between a tutorial and practical exercises but Alan was tolerant of the hiccups and I never felt pressured during the course delivery. Overall I have come out of the course with a far better level of knowledge and felt confident in taking this on in my work going forward – the presentation documents are also very clear and supportive aide memoirs”

“Alan delivered a very good course. As the attendee list was very small the interaction was not great from the trainees. I think it is a bit rude of trainees to not put on their cameras throughout the course and feel for Alan trying to deliver a course to blank screens.. Think it would benefit if people were encouraged to turn their cameras on as much as possible to ensure the course is more interactive.. That said Alan delivered the material excellently”

There’s no equal in the world of business analytics

Power BI is a powerful data analytics and visualisation tool that allows business users to monitor data, analyse and forecast trends, and make decisions like no other BI self-service software can. The point of business intelligence is to make better business decisions.

Learning Power BI gives you an edge over people who are trying to analyse data using tools that are harder to use, less powerful and less collaborative.
