The Workshop for Better BI Design

Learn best practices for beautiful dashboards and reports in this fast-paced, hands-on PowerBI workshop designed for teams.

Here’s what we teach in this Power BI workshop

Dashboard Audiences

Use of Color

Using case study examples, we’ll go through alert colors (reds, greens), brand colours & themes.

Grid Systems

Designing without a grid system in Power BI is a bad idea. We’ll show off over 70 modern grids.

What is an Insight?

Stop confusing a metric for an insight. Aim for true insights before you start visualizing.

Charts & Graphs

Which charts answer which business questions? Let’s review the best of charts and graphs.

Storytelling with Dashboards

We want to foster the creativity in everyone we teach. Everyone can tell a story with data.

Dashboard Objectives

This is so important. What is the point of your dashboard? We’ll discuss the array of possibilities.

Sequencing your Power BI Report

Which insight goes first? Which one goes last? Let’s see an array of options for a Power BI story.
