This is a training course developed from the most popular and up-to-date content of our training on Power BI and AI from Rookie to Rock Star. The content is short but explained clearly to get to the point. Many live demos will be presented by Leila and Reza in-person. Although this is a training, we expect many people to attend at this session, so you can consider this training like a mini-conference as well, where you have the opportunity to meet your peers in other companies, have networking and fun in addition to the all invaluable learnings.

We still offer our Detailed training sessions to organizations, but for many people, dedicating 10+ days of their time for Power BI training at once is not possible, so we have created this Summit, to help you learn the best of the best with pointers to study and read more. This is not a lecture-only presentation, you will experience live demos for every subject. With spending only a few days of your time, you get to learn the best of the best, and also connect with others.

What others said about presenters and their training content

The workshop run by Reza and Leila was amongst the best I’ve ever done. The pace was just right. Their prepared materials were superb.  I really enjoyed the hands-on nature of their training. I learned so much in a short time. I came back to my desk and felt confident enough to start building my own reports.

I would definitely sign up for their training again!

I have been using Power BI for around 1 year and I was in love with it the very first day. It was very easy to visualize and bring our data stories to the client’s presentations. During my initial days, I had to use web search or use the Microsoft Power BI forums to find answers to my questions and to explore the tool. On many such occasions, I found Reza’s blog and articles to my rescue. I finally decided to attend the 5 day Power BI: Rookie to Rockstar Course.

Right from Day 1 through Day 5, Reza was a professional and a pleasant instructor. He is very approachable and very much flexible even though I was attending the Online Course from the United States. The classroom was LIVE from New Zealand. Very thorough in covering all the details mentioned in the curriculum and there was no question that he could not answer. His expertise and knowledge are second to none. I have learned a lot with the sessions especially data modeling and DAX functions which I would definitely put to use in the near future at my current job. I would like to thank Reza and his team for the flawless and wonderful sessions. It was very informative.

Abhi Guruprasad


I attended RADACADs “Power BI from Rookie to Rock – Star” course in Auckland from 19-12 Nov 2018. I had a beginner’s knowledge of Power BI and found the course extremely helpful in understanding what could be done within Power BI. Reza was an excellent instructor and explained concepts and methods in a clear and concise manner. There were lots of practical examples and exercises provided as part of the course, and Reza was also very helpful and willing to answer any questions we had about improving our existing Power BI reports and dashboards. A very enjoyable course – I highly recommended it.

Jamie Yim – Senior Business Analyst Enterprise Process


Together with two colleagues of mine, I joined Module 2 & 3 of the “Power BI from Rookie to Rock – Star” Training in Duisburg, Germany. The in-person training hold by Reza was just fantastic. In a well-structured way, Reza not only gave a comprehensive overview but also deep-dived into the functionalities of PowerBI and showed us the great value this software could bring to enterprises. I can strongly recommend the sessions and hope to get the chance to attend other courses as well. Thanks a lot to Reza and team!

Stefan Küppers Business Process Owner BI / SCI, Logistics – HAVI Logistics Business Services GmbH


We organized a 4-day training event with Reza and Leila from Radacad.

From the outset, they provided great advice on what they could cover and provided a very comprehensive overview for the 25 trainees attending the training. For anyone who is considering PowerBI specifically and want clarity on the best architecture and how to effectively use PowerBI, I strongly recommend contacting Radacad. They gave us a real head start.

Thanks, Reza and Leila.

Brent Gamble Team leader BI Training and Support – Massey University


I attended RADACADs “Advanced Analytics” course recently in Frankfurt in May 2017. Being a regular user of Power BI (with a science background ) the course was extremely helpful in showing me how to incorporate R data visualizations into Power BI dashboards and for introducing me to machine learning using the Microsoft ML Studio. Leila is an excellent and extremely knowledgeable instructor and explained complex data analytical concepts and methodologies in an easy-to-understand manner. I thoroughly recommend this course to anyone who wants to expand their data analytical skills and knowledge.

Kenny McMillan, Sports Physiologist / Data Analyst, Frankfurt, Germany


As part of SQL Saturday Auckland 2016 I attended an “Analytics with Power BI and R.” pre-con with Leila. Leila took the class’s knowledge from rudimentary to competent in a day. We first looked at R, the language and the software. Once these skills were obtained we started to look at Power BI and the integration that it has with R. We worked through a few examples and Leila answered all of the class’s questions and offered to provide supplementary material for some of the more advanced questions. I left the class feeling that my R and Power BI knowledge was at a competent level and ready to dive into some of the more advanced material that Leila provided.
