Jason was terrific, I have just attended the [live] business analyst course and his detailed explanations, preparation and presenting style truly hit the mark in terms of improving my skills and, more importantly, applying the course content to the workplace. Highly recommended to anyone on their Microsoft Power Query / Power BI journey, his explanation of the DAX foundations / formulas is worth the price alone.

Awesome work Jason! I’m from a data science background and typically perform data analysis in Python. I have a newfound respect for Power BI, its technical ability and I now understand its place in business. I thought the delivery was great. I found the pace easy to follow, Jason was very clear with his instructions, and additionally Jason was very approachable if there was an issue.
