What our clients say

Scott was very approachable, always willing to answer questions and assist where needed

Onsite, Scotland

Scott is clearly an expert with Power BI and associated areas, and was also able to integrate our specific requirements into the training material very well. I appreciated his desire to ensure we were getting what we needed from the 3 days. I came away from the course confident that we could make great improvements to how we deliver Power BI to our customers and excited about how we can benefit from the Power platform internally.
