Meet Your Facilitator


Hi, I’m Michael Scholtz the owner and founder of RonInsights and I love Power BI! This unique and robust product is my primary tool in bringing data driven professionals closer to their data; in turn helping them make better data driven decisions. With over a decade of analytical experience, I have created reports across multiple industries spanning from USA, Europe and APAC and now I want to share these skills and Power BI knowledge with you.

I realised that data driven insights might not always apparent to the business, that stakeholders who have the most to gain are not always capable or willing to do the analysis themselves and that those who have the most to gain, might be resistant to changing the status quo.

Turning data into meaningful and impactful insights, enabled me to improve customer experience, grow revenue channels, reduce waste, save time, improve staff/customer retention rates and change the mindset of an entire organisation.
