Looking for a Power BI Educational Session Presenter for GPUG Jax, FL Chapter Meeting

  • 1.  Looking for a Power BI Educational Session Presenter for GPUG Jax, FL Chapter Meeting

    Hello Everyone. My name is Tasha Orange and I am one of the chapter leaders for the GPUG North Florida Chapter located here in Jacksonville. Sorry to just drop in so randomly but I am hoping to find some help for an idea I have for our chapter meeting next month.

    I would like to set up a Power BI educational session that our members can actually follow along with on their own computers. Maybe a "hands on" educational session where they can download the free version of Power BI and maybe utilize some test spreadsheets or other test data so that they can actually build a report or dashboard as the presenter walks us through how it all works.

    I, and many of our chapter members, love the thought of Power BI... but we have little or no experience with it. My thought is that if we can get someone who knows what they are doing to educate us via a tutorial that we can follow along with, then many of us may actually utilize this free tool and/or go with a more robust paid version if it fits our organizational needs.

    I thought that this would be the best place to look for help in this endeavor since we're all family here. :)

    I apologize if my inquiry here is naive or my intent is completely off the grid in what is doable or available, but any advice or direction you guys can give is completely and genuinely appreciated.

    Thanks!
    Tasha Orange

    Hi Tasha,
    I'd be happy to present, although it would have to be remotely.  Let me know if that works.  I'm on vacation that week.  If a remote session doesn't work, let me know and I'll find you a local person, although they would not be able to present with GP data, they are super great!

    Funny, if it were 1 week earlier, I'd come in person as I'll be at my parents, who live near Tallahassee.
