Power BI Best Practices: A Lunch and Learn Recap

Providing ongoing professional development and educational opportunities for our team members is something we’re passionate about and committed to at RedCloud. A big part of this includes learning best practices and lessons learned from each other.  Recently our team gathered for the next session in our ongoing series of “Lunch and Learn” forums, led by Associate Consultant Benny Swedberg. Benny’s presentation aimed at helping our team improve our collective knowledge base and skills around the increasingly popular data analytics platform Power BI, and specifically around the tool’s report and dashboard functions.

Benny’s unique background as a world-class, competitive cyclist, along with his educational background from the renowned University of Washington Foster School of Business has served him well to challenge himself in his young career. He’s now been with RedCloud for more than a year and has rapidly developed into a Power BI expert – so we were eager to sit down with him and learn more.

Power BI has become a crucial tool in many of our projects, providing visual representations for key data points of our clients’ businesses. The tool is so robust with a potentially dizzying number of reporting and view options, it’s important for our team to understand how to best present results in an easily digestible way. With such a powerful tool at hand, the more we learn from Benny’s experience, and collaborate with each other on best practices, the better off our clients are.

“The PowerBI Lunch and Learn with Benny was really insightful! I learned a few handy tips on how to better navigate PowerBi and unearth data that can be hidden inside reports. It was also great to see so many RedCloud employees and enjoy a meal with them. Win-win!” – Megan Mossman

As we’ve grown so significantly in recent years, these Lunch and Learns continue to prove themselves as an important part of our culture here at RedCloud. Taking a lunch break to share collective wisdom from employees both veterans and those new to the team is a priority in setting the bar for how we operate and open our lines of communication. These professional development opportunities keep RedCloud pushing forward, continually challenging ourselves and ready to learn from one another regardless of years spent in the industry.

We thank Benny for his time and look forward to the next topic on the docket.
