As this workshop is now on-demand, we've watched it and have the following to say ...

It's a time honoured phrase that a picture speaks a thousand words but I've struggled in the past to get beyond excel charts and PowerPoint as my go to medium for creating a convincing argument.

My instinct is that if I can create something visual that instantly tells a story and double up with a compelling narrative, 9 times out of 10 my intended message will land more clearly and more people will understand the trend or message I want to talk about

Excel is awesome but in all honesty, I get to a point where combining multiple sources, being dynamic around what's shown and the sheer scale of the data makes me walk away.

Transforming and combining data is simple in Power BI. I found that out right away. Using matches within the data was far far easier than I thought and Nick took us through a range of techniques in this area. 

Then exploring how I could visualise the information in so many new forms was a great part of the workshop.

The best part? Definitely learning how to slice and dice data dynamically so that I could not only change the focus of my narrative with 1 click but also allow other people to do the same once I published.

Genuinely a game changer for me. Highly recommend this one if you are like me feeling capable but a bit limited in the tools on offer in Excel or PowerPoint.
