  • Unemployed individuals
  • People with disabilities

Capital City Partnership - Introduction to Power BI

Delivered over 2 x 2.5 hour afternoon sessions. Online Delivery

“The content and presenter were really effective and it was a good mix of practical delivery and presentation. I could happily have continued this as a 6 week course to learn more tips”….”Rik was great. Very enthusiastic in general and about the data itself which trickled down I think. 6 hours on Teams isn’t everyone’s idea of heaven but the time passed quickly and that has a lot to do with how the workshop is delivered. I enjoyed the two sessions”…”The content and presenter were really effective and it was a good mix of practical delivery and presentation.
