Welcome to an exciting new FREE class on Power BI Custom Visuals! Over the next year (that’s right year), I will be releasing one module a week detailing how to work with all of the Power BI visuals available in the Custom Visuals Gallery. You might ask why am I doing this? Well The Microsoft Power BI team and the Power BI Community, through the Custom Visuals Gallery, have expanded the data visualization capabilities of Power BI drastically but have provided little direction on how to use these the new features.
Welcome to an exciting new FREE class that I am launching today! Over the next year (that’s right year!)

In my previous blog, we discussed some of the problems you may be facing that's causing your training efforts to fail. Now you're probably wondering what the solutions to those problems are. If society being easily distracted is the core problem for keeping people engaged, then what’s the solution? What is needed to have attendees leave a training class feeling excited about what they just learned? How can you make students leave feeling like they can actually use what they learned to solve real world problems?
Let's take a look at ways you can make sure your training endeavors are successful.
Attending a training class should be an exciting experience. You’re learning something new and hopefully something you can actually use. You’re sitting in a room full of people that likely are struggling with the same problems you are and have what should be an expert teaching you how to solve those problems. However, we often find ourselves distracted, bored or even put to sleep.
Does your organization have a training budget used to regularly invest in keeping your staff’s skills up-to-date? It’s very common at larger and some small companies for employees to be sent to training classes regularly. But is your organization getting the appropriate ROI for that investment? Do your employees see training as an investment or a burden?
Over the last five years, training and education have seen drastic changes in how course material is delivered. The reason is because many students simply cannot attend a training class that has a set start and end time and/or eats up twenty to thirty hours of their week. The reality for many of us is that work comes first, and it is impossible to be completely disconnected from our regular nine to five job to attend a training class.
In his first blog on creating a technical session, our Training Director Devin Knight discussed how to choose a topic. In this post, he'll give you tips on picking the perfect title for your session. The title of your session often dictates how successful your presentation will be, and Devin is sharing his tricks on creating the best presentation title.
So you’ve decided or perhaps were told to do a technical presentation. If this is something that’s new for you, then you may be going through a variety of emotions. You may start feeling excited in anticipation of the event, but often that quickly that changes to anxiety as you realize the amount ofwork ahead of you. As an experienced technical presenter, I understand what you're going through and the challenges you'll face throughout the process.
