I have done a free workshop with Mico before and was blown away by her presence and all around knowledge of the subject. Then I did this course, and it has completely challenged and redefined my mindset. Suddenly, everything is now making sense. Having clear and proven steps and methods to engage users to properly define the what, how and why's is key to successfully delivering the highest value and effective data stories. Not only will this stimulate your creativity and spark deeper understanding among your users but also define a new way of thinking and analyzing problems to drive far better business decisions and risk management. Also Mico is just awesome, super smart, engaging and fun. Never a dull moment. Hands down the most engaging and valuable online course I have done so far.

This course was awesome! The methodology bibrainz developed for building executive dashboards not only covered the dashboard building process, but also touched on the psychology for decision making/getting buy-in, collecting requirements, and design choices. As an analyst, having data and evidence is extremely important and I'm glad to have gained a high level understanding of the reasons *why* you chose the methods that you did. A fun and enjoyable class - never a dull moment. Thank you for all the insights.
