Power BI Design 101:

Data is more than just numbers on a page. When combined with design, we suddenly have the power to connect and engage with our report users and ultimately transform our data into decisions. Come along for a demo-heavy session where Alice shares practical design tips to help you start shaping your data story in Power BI – quickly! Starting from a blank canvas, she will begin by asking questions of her data, and design a ‘5-minute mock-up’. She will then move onto transforming this into a ‘Proof of Concept’ report, refined with layouts, themes, corporate branding, which can be used to get early feedback and engagement from business users. She will then add the finishing touches like navigation bookmarks, buttons and tooltips and to create a seamless user experience.
