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.


This government tailored training taking place over three consecutive business days is designed to help you develop the intermediate skills in bit size chunks; skills that will be directly applicable to your day-to-day business activities. The staggered approach enables you time to digest the information, put it into practice and return the following morning to pick up where you left off, with your new information still fresh in the memory. The final day will culminate in a personal project where you will demonstrate your newly acquired skills and develop your own stunning Power BI report. You can then share these dashboards with teams, business partners and publish them to the web.

The Course will be run on:

Tuesday 23/5/2023 – 1:00 – 3:30pm (AEST)
