Complicated explanations cost time and knowledge!

This course explains technical concepts in SIMPLE terms. It's a course addressed to Excel users and not IT Developers.

I've designed your learning journey to make sure you get LOTS OF BENEFIT JUST FROM THE ESSENTIALS MODULE.

I've broken down the concepts in ways you can "visualize" what's going on behind-the-scenes in the ADVANCED & PRO sections of the course.

The Challenges, Follow-along activities, Key Takeaways and Course Notes will give you multiple opportunities to master the topics learnt.

Plus it’s 3 Courses in One:

We start with the Essentials. Then move on to master difficult DAX concepts (which you can apply to Power BI right away). Plus, we create Dashboards along the way.

This way you don’t just learn Power Pivot & DAX in isolation, but you will also learn how to combine your data model with "standard" Excel features to create dynamic dashboards that solve real-life challenges.

"Thank you, Leila, for a truly informative course. The individual modules were very understandable and 'digestible', with lots of useful examples. The overall course was really well structured and interlinked. Well worth every cent!"

"An awesome approach from Excel perspective for DAX users.

Leila really took her time to dissect and explain what was happening behind the scene with the DAX functions in Power Pivot where she uses slicers and other tools to clearly explain the behavior of the functions.

The Filter and Row context as well as Evaluation Context and Context Transition has been well explained with visuals that make you grasp this difficult DAX concept. A 5 Star Rated Course."

"Very thorough and paced well. I appreciate all the hard work that went into this resource."

Here's the problem...

DAX can get difficult. Most courses focus on the technical aspects only instead of real-life applications. Therefore, many people haven't explored what it has to offer!

They continue doing things the old "manual" way. Or the "complex" way with difficult formulas.

And that’s why I created this course!

I broke down the concepts in unique ways so you can visualize what’s happening at each stage. I made sure I bring the useful and easy features to the very beginning of the course. This way you don’t just learn DAX, data modelling and power pivot but you learn how you can combine these with standard Excel features to create impressive dashboards which look like it took you forever to make.

And something else you may not know ...

Data modelling and DAX is not just for Excel but it’s also a skill you need to have for Power BI. So, you learn 1 feature and you can apply it to 2 different apps. In fact, the 2 applications most used in companies today.

I'll give you the tools to really make a difference at your workplace. I’m going to take you from Power Pivot & DAX Beginner to Pro!

This is the only course for Power Pivot & DAX you will EVER need!
