Data Insight Training was born out of a desire to teach Excel users to work smarter instead of harder. We specialise in Excel Business Intelligence and Microsoft Power BI training.
Our training will show you how to put together sophisticated dashboards using simple Excel tools, instead of complex tools like macros, VLookUps or VBA. What makes our training unique is that, instead of focusing on the technical aspects (which require learning complex programming languages like SQL), we focus on the business user.
We enable business people to move far beyond spreadsheets, as well as teaching a variety of analysis techniques, making data easier to understand through easy to create dashboards and reports, empowering them to make better business decisions and putting them in the top 1% of Excel users worldwide. We guarantee that by learning these skills you will become 80% more productive in 20% of the time.
We have aligned our courses to give you the skills needed to write the two exams required for the MCSA: BI Reporting qualification, which is a big step towards achieving the MCSE: Data Management and Analytics qualification.
We offer on-site training, either at your offices or at a venue of your choice, anywhere in the UK or Europe. We can also offer customised training to suit your requirements.
"Learning to use these tools will make you 80% more productive in 20% of the time."
That simple discovery changed my life and I made it my life's mission to show other frustrated Excel users how to work smarter instead of harder by learning to use all of Microsoft's "Power" tools (Power Pivot, Power View, Power Query and Power BI) readily available to everyone.
There are over 800 million Excel users worldwide and less than 1% of them know how about these brilliant tools!
Over the past 10 years I have created training courses to show people how to use these incredible tools and have changed the lives of many of Excel users. I started with classroom training and then as technology progressed, I decided to take my courses to the world and now my courses are available online too.
"Working with data can be incredibly frustrating, learning to use these tools goes a long way to reducing the frustration."
Later I joined Barclays Africa as a data analyst and spent 5 years creating reports in Excel, SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS), Qlik Sense, QlikView and Power BI. This gave me exposure and insight into the kinds of frustrations that business users experience when trying to understand their data or streamline their work processes.
My affinity with working with data resulted in my colleagues looking to me for guidance and I began unofficially training them how to use a variety of data analysis tools. This was when I discovered a love for teaching and realised my two passions worked well together!
My deep knowledge of data analytics, combined with an ability to explain apparently complex issues in simple ways, is what I bring to my training.
