What people think about the workshop and our content

IT WAS ABSOLUTLY INCREDIBLE! Actually I know already a lot about Power Query, but your examples and cases were absolutely great

Stefan, June 2015

this was one of the absolutely most wonderful excel training classes I’ve ever attended! The assignment guide was awesome! Whoever created that did an absolutely thorough job!

Elizabeth, June 2015

I really enjoyed the class and found it very useful. The content was very strong.

Alex, June 2015

Excellent content and I loved the way the instructor conducted the workshop

Martin, June 2015

I’ve loved this course!! I think it perfectly complements Power Pivot

Juan, June 2015

I really enjoyed it

Samira, June 2015

Since the course] I did one complex project using my PowerQuery and PowerPivot – Instead of opening 8 reports, I use one single report! Love your energy and passion to help the students… Just stunned by your humbleness… Thank you!

Krishna P.

My most favorite story: just last week, one of my co-workers had a huge chunk of sales data… they were complaining how long it would take them to get it to a format where they could use pivot tables. And when I told them I could do it in less than 30 seconds — of course, they didn’t believe! Insert table, grab data, unpivot, voila!!! New office hero! Power Query actually makes cleaning data fun!”


The training examples helped me gain the confidence to tackle what seemed like a really huge impossible task.


Your content, blogs, (M) is for Data Monkey, have all been reliable and practical resources for our employee’s development. PowerQuery has become the cornerstone in our business workflow, and has allowed us to achieve incredible productivity and quality improvements in handling our customer’s information.

Justin M.

Enjoyed the book and work through examples as well as the format and working exercises and the Q&A… The timeline was perfect and the follow-up session very helpful. Ken and Miguel did an excellent job overall… Have recommended book and workshop to co-workers


I really enjoyed the workshop. It was one of the best training I had! I was amazed of all the material you covered and how smooth it went and on time. I look forward to leaning more about Power Query.

Mike R.

I love the video format because when I come across a new problem, I can reference the video to review a pattern that was taught in the course to handle that exact issue. The class was very reasonably priced and one of the most useful classes I have ever taken.”


The training and your written resources are excellent. It was really understanding the ‘group by’ function that finally turned the light bulb on how to re-create a lot of my previous work… Thank you for both of your passion and love of the tool to share and educate others… Keep doing what you are doing.

Carla M. , June, 2017

My [BI] solution would not be possible without Power Query! Both Ken and Miguel are great and know their stuff. They posted all sessions online for us so I can always look back… All in all, very happy!
