Power BI has grown to be a very comprehensive tool and thus we cannot focus on all aspects in a course. The Microsoft official documentation for Power BI is very comprehensive and covers many east to learn functions. Our courses focus on understanding key concepts around how best to use the tool to solve business problems. This is a total different way of thinking and thus requires a different approach. The success of our courses are grounded in our passion to focus on best practice concepts that empower a solid foundation to build upon.

Johann is brilliant. The Data Bear solutions are just fantastic. The quantifiable improvement to any business using their Power BI Dashboards are worth 100 times more than the investment. Great stuff.
We have been working with Johann and Dmitri for almost a year now. From concept to design and implementation, they have been nothing but professional and timely. They leveraged Azure and Power BI to sort and report our point of sales data. We have no reservation when it comes to recommending Data Bear and look forward to our continued partnership.
The DataBear team has been great to work with! They take the time to understand the problem and then put together a real-time solution. It's also great when they responds so quickly! We will continue to work with them!
Fantastic training delivered clearly and effectively. Training was delivered at a pace that reflected our individual abilities and Johan ensured everything was clearly understood before moving on. Would happily recommend!
We had the pleasure of attending the 2 day BI Course. Not was not only very informative, it was made extremely enjoyable by the very knowledgeable Johann who presented in a way we all understood. Highly Recommend anyone looking for some BI training to contact Data Bear
Great Power Bi training in London. A very comprehensive overview of this platform with a thorough agenda, good training materials and a friendly group; Johann is an excellent trainer with a great depth of knowledge and experience in Power Bi. Highly recommended.
DataBear were a pleasure to deal with. We had a 2-day training workshop at our own location, Johann was very knowledgeable, not only delivering a well structured and organised piece of training, but also able to answer questions quickly. Thank you for a superb experience.
Super clear instruction and tutoring by Johann. Great size of group (6) - meant that no-one in the class was left behind, and it seemed those ahead - were not too held back. It is a lot of info to take in for the 2 day course. Would highly recommend the 3 day course where possible! Jon Brown
I recently attended the 2-day Power BI Course run by Johann. This was an intensive and extremely valuable course. Johann is a great instructor, he knows the subject well, and his pace is spot-on. There were many clear and easy-to-follow examples, and the emphasis on practical learning makes this a very worthwhile two days. I would recommend doing the three day course however, as there is so much content and I left wanting just a little more exposure to the final module. Many thanks Johann!
Being new to Power BI I was keen to organise some training for our UK data team. After some Googling I decided on Databear and gave them a call. Johann promptly called me back and we discussed the various training options and we arranged some onsite training to be held at our own offices. Johann provided two excellent days of training, full of knowledge, insight and explanations. With Johann you get right in to using the tool and apply what you are learning as you go. I would highly recommend Johann to anyone interested in learning how to use Power BI correctly and effectively.
I attended the three day PowerBI training course with Johann and found it extremely valuable and insightful. Johann has an excellent knowledge of the subject and the lessons are well structured. I would recommend people take the opportunity to learn and grow their skills through Data Bear .
