Content Description


Develop your analytics skills by learning how to use Power BI to collect and organise your data and gather insights. Power BI is a business intelligence suite of integrated applications that makes dashboard development and distribution as easy as typing in the question you want to ask.

In this webinar you will learn a number of practical and useful shortcuts that can reduce the amount of time you spend moving back and forth between the keyboard and mouse, as well as useful features such as Conditional Formatting, Named Ranges, Styles and Tables that help you quickly update calculations and formatting.


Learn how to use Power BI to export and manipulate data from a range of financial and non-financial, internal and external data sources. Easily transform data to generate powerful dashboards with just a few clicks of the mouse. Work through a case study as you find out about a range of different tools and visualisations that you can use in Power BI Desktop. Build charts by simply typing in questions, or use the insights tools to determine the reason for movements from one period to another.
