Allison was great to work with. She was very accommodating to the time zone difference. I am new to DAX and Power BI, and wanted to learn versus just handing the project over. She was very patient and quizzed me on what steps and code should be used and why. We spent 8 hours on my project, and moved it along light years ahead of the pace i was going at it alone. I would highly recommend her and will probably go back to her again for additional tuning of my project.

Allison promptly replied to my initial inquiry and within minutes we were online diving thru my Power Bi business challenge with her expert guidance. A great consultant and one I'll certainly engage with again.

Software perfectly enabled the course to be a success, great how Allison could see all of our screens without having to share them. Great examples, workbook was really easy to follow. Allison is a great tutor, very patient and friendly, and very knowledgeable and clearly passionate. Made for a great learning environment. Really really enjoyed the course :) Thank you

Power BI & Excel Consults

If you have Excel or Power BI requirements and are lacking the resource within your team to tackle them, I can help out. I am a Microsoft Certified Professional in BI Reporting. I offer remote consulting in data analysis and reporting using Microsoft Excel and/or Power BI. I work with clients to:

* optimize existing Excel workbooks

* build or update reports and dashboards in Excel or Power BI to gain insights from single or multiple data sources

* leverage the Office 365 suite of apps to streamline business intelligence and reporting

I can complete all the work myself, freeing you up for other projects, or I can work with you to tackle the project hands on, teaching you the skills you'll need to replicate similar reports or documents.

Get in touch with any inquiries or potential projects.

Allison explained the DAX formula I needed in relation to my situation so that I could wrap my head around the context vs. generic formulas that others had given. Very helpful!

Allison is not only very knowledgeable but also very patient and persistent. She was a life saver when I posted a question in the Power Bi community, for a problem I have been trying to resolve for months. I had already given up but she was there, motivating me and reassuring that I could do it. And I did! With the help of her detailed explanation (including screen shots) I finally got to my desired solution. Considering I am a newbie with zero experience and knowledge in programming, she did an amazing job in guiding me through the solution. Thank you so much, Allison. The advice and help you provide in the Power BI group is unvaluable.

Thanks Allison – really appreciate your patient expertise and ability to relate to what we were trying to achieve. The time spent was extremely valuable for us and I am sure we will be repeatedly praising the quality of the “new look” file for some time to come.

Great course and worked really well especially as we were all remote. I think having a small amount of people on the course was key.

Hi Allison, I just wanted to thank you for the training yesterday. Our team are all very positive about the change to Windows 10 and 365 and enjoyed the session when some were reluctant to attend. I think your approachable relaxed style of training is perfect for a team of people at a variety of level of understanding.

- Sam, July 2019

A good introductory course to PowerBI conducted at a good learning pace. Allison was comfortable in diverting slightly away from the course into real world applications which aided understanding and potential application of the training/learnings.

Great balance between learning and also realising I was not as novice as I thought- I was not made to feel like I didn't know anything and that helped to make the experience much better. Allison is a breath of fresh air. She's very informative and easy to understand. Thank you :)
