Hi, I’m Mico, founder of the BI Brainz Academy. 


You are one step closer to making your BI project a success! 

I was once in your shoes. 

As a BI consultant, I saw many large BI projects fail, including my own. The ‘reported’ cause was always technology. 

For almost a year I suffered through endless scoping meetings where the users were not ready or aligned. 

Expectations were never set or met. Requirements changed by the hour and by the time the project was delivered, often late, the business had already moved on. 

By late 2008 I had decided something had to change.

Then one night, while expressing my frustrations to one of my mentors from MIT, he suggested a few books about human psychology and behavior. 

Halfway into the first book, a lightbulb 💡 went off!

THAT'S WHEN I realized that most BI projects were
failing for two main reasons...


Eight years, and 500+ enterprise BI projects later, the top mistake I saw, was a lack of process.

From requirement gathering, to design to the build, most BI folks were doing it ‘on the fly’ claiming that it was agile.

Worst, the users had no idea what to expect. 

The Result? A loss of user confidence in the delivery team and a search to find an alternative.  An exhausting and vicious cycle.


One thing I realized early is that users liked data, lots and lots of data.

It was fascinating to have decision makers convince me that their 30+ KPIs were tracked on regular basis by their team. 

The result? A data visualization that looked like a report with zero insight that served as an export data tool for the business!

let me help you avoid these mistakes!

I created a step-by-step course to teach you the same proven techniques we've used to build 500+ story driven dashboards for companies like Shell, Nestle and Coca Cola

Here’s what you get..

in the Master BI Data Storytelling in Just 30 days online course

Proven methodology used by over 100 of the largest brands across the world to deliver actionable dashboards

Unlimited access to 40 videos, taught across 4 steps, 5 quizzes and 4 exercises

Access to our exclusive support group and seasonal weekly Live Q&As

Instant access to our unique, BI Data Storytelling Toolkit with templates, checklists, workbooks and much more

…and how you can apply it immediately

You have a BI project, but your not sure how to start. The last project was a failure and your users are ready for something different. Hundreds of companies worldwide are using our proven methods and toolkit to create compelling data stories and data visualizations that business users ❤ ❤          — let’s see how you can too.

This course is for you if… 

You have NO process

No problem. Our proven methodology used by over 100 of the largest brands across the world to deliver actionable dashboards comes well equipped.

You don't know what to ask

You’ll get a list of key questions to ask your users to make sure they ‘stick’ to the story. We’ll also teach you what ‘NOT’ to ask to avoid extensive tool and color discussions.

You're not a designer

Don’t worry! You don’t have to be. Our wireframe to dashboard templates were designed specifically for non-designers. No more fiddling with colors, follow the process and you’ll get the same amazing looking dashboards each time.

You're tired of building
useless reports

The next time a user asks for a another report we’ll teach you exactly what to do to determine if there is a story, and what to do if there is no story.

Your users are obsessed
with 'tool talk'

Believe it or not, users only focus on tools because that is how they were trained to think by I.T. You’ll be surprised what happens when you change the discussion and focus on the true problems. We’ll show you how.

You've lost credibility
with the business

We can’t change the past, but we can change your future, future engagements that is. You wont go into another scoping meeting without a plan, process or something to show. Our unique storytelling toolkit has everything you need!

“Liked the practicality of the content.”

Through our online courses and in-person workshops we have trained 2,000+ people who are actively using our methodology and getting results. See what some of them have to say.

“The Visual Storytelling workshop opened my eyes to the fact that as an Information Management Professional I was approaching the business the worst way possible.

This was an on time investment and it was well worth the spend. “

Kadeon Grant – Digicel, Jamaica

This has been one of the best classes ever. If you have the privilege of partaking in one of Mico Yuk’s sessions do it. I learned a ton.

I’ve sat through countless presentations and given quite a few as well and I took more away from yours today in both presentation style, room control and good impactful, actionable content then any I have before. I really appreciate it and am thankful to have been a part of that class. Thanks so much. I think you are awesome.

Ryan Deeds – The Crichton Group, USA

Thanx Mico for the enlightening workshop. Gave a very handy perspective on dashboard building and designing, especially in the world full of pretty but useless ones. Can’t wait to implement on some real life dashboards and bring the change to the users and power to the people. Huge 👍🏻👍🏻

The techniques and templates have been tested and proven by some of the biggest companies in the world.

All lessons are delivered on a weekly basis, on demand and are accessible 24/7 by logging into your account.

You have my promise.

While this is an online class and we can ‘virtually’ hold an infinite amount of students, but we want to ensure that your overall experience with the course is amazing. So to ensure that we have an exclusive and quality event, we are going to limit the registration to 150 people.

This also ensures that being a part of this exclusive group you get to take full advantage of the Q&A and Bonus Sessions without being a heard in the pack.

Again, all my trainings are sold out so make sure to claim your spot NOW. Don’t wait and kick yourself reading online again how great it was!

There is no need to convince you anymore, just take a look at what some of our students had to say in a recent survey:

Actual Student Feedback #1: “This is so great because it provides best practice – not just for our customers but also to convince our company employees how important this is. It gives us a compass to guide us through. I like it also because it goes beyond just basic steps, it brings in important values such as making sure people are valued and thanking people. This is really a recipe for success! Thank you!”

Actual Student Feedback #2: “As a cognitive scientist, my opinion is that this is a great course on UI design. Also, the social aspects on tips for interfacing with business and end-users were essential. I would recommend BIDF to anyone interested in improving their BI skills.”

Actual Student Feedback #3: “The course provides a great overview of how to approach a dashboard project. Lots of “inside” tips on what to do and what to avoid. Great opportunity to interact with other people who share the same passion and with industry experts as well. As an experienced dashboard developer, I definitely picked up a long list of things that I can use on my next dashboard project.”

It’s a ‘No Brainer’. See you there!

While the BI Data Storytelling training is platform agnostic (can be built in any dashboarding tool), we will be using PowerBI and other tools for our examples and other BI tools for real-world demos.

This is however NOT a technical webinar series and more focused on the methodology itself.

Sure, the fastest way is to click the ‘chat now’ button at the bottom right of the page or to send an email to [email protected] and someone will get back to you within 48 hours. Be sure to include a phone number.
