What was her experience?

“I attended a previous Power BI training from Techionista Academy. That was incredibly fun to attend. The group was diverse, so different perspectives were covered. The storytelling part had extra added value because you can apply that outside of Power BI. In the end, a good foundation was laid to build beautiful, clear reports and dashboards.”
