My name’s Rick de Groot and I’m an independent consultant specialising in Power BI, Power Query and Excel. I have worked with business intelligence tools for over 12 years. I really enjoy picking up new programming concepts and techniques and love sharing my knowledge with you. Besides some online-courses, my journey has mostly been about self study to teach me the necessary Power BI and Excel tricks.

On my blog I share shortcuts, automation tricks, and techniques to analyse data. Through these, I hope you are better able to optimize and automate your BI reporting. And let’s be honest, who wouldn’t want to save loads of time? The topics on this blog range from core Excel, to Power Query (M), Power Pivot (DAX) and Power BI.

The most rewarding moments for me are when I learn new ways to work with Power BI that completely change my approach to dealing with data. It would be amazing if I could pass these enlightening moments along to others.

I encourage you to pose your questions and comments underneath the blog posts, so we can all learn from each other.

Thanks for visiting my website and I look forward to hearing from you. My email is rick(at)gorilla.bi.

Cheers ✌️
Rick
