Sydney Power BI Virtual Meetup – Feb 2021
February 17 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pmFree
Hello Power BI User Group Members – Happy New Year. Unfortunately we are still under Covid restrictions. Iman and I are keen to get back to our live User Group ASAP this year however it is not going to happen before March.
The February event will be an Introductory Power BI Overview session targeted at managers and anyone that wants to learn what Power BI can do. If you are already competent with Power BI, this session will not cover anything you don’t know. If however you are relatively new to Power BI and/or don’t have a complete understanding of the breadth of offer, this intro session may fill in some of the missing information. It is also a great opportunity for you to invite your colleagues and/or manager(s) to attend so they can get an overview.
