Using Big Data To Gain Insights With Power BI
by Danielle Papillon

We have been collecting data for thousands of years. The arrival of computers in the mid-20th century greatly expanded the capacity for data collection and processing and today data is collected on a vast range of topics, from social and economic trends to consumer behaviour and scientific research. The scale and scope of data collection continue to expand rapidly, driven by technological advances and the increasing importance of data in many aspects of society, leading to massive data sets we now refer to as "Big Data". Big Data empowers organizations to obtain meaningful insights from the vast amounts of data that are being generated every day. These insights can lead to better decision-making, improved operational efficiency, and the creation of new business opportunities and social value. Data analytics is the practice of developing insights from data sets. In this recorded webinar, Procept instructor Danielle Papillon examines how data analytics tools such as PowerBI can be used to create insights.

Getting Back to Work in a COVID World
by Ori Schibi

COVID has created significant disruptions in our lives: businesses shut down, people working from home, supply chain issues, and more. Many of us have felt disconnected from our peers and are looking forward to getting back to work at the offices; however, what is that going to look like? Will everyone be back or will we go back in a phased approach? Will we be working in some type of hybrid approach where some people are in the office while others are still working from home? What about those who may not have been fully vaccinated? And what if things keep changing -- how are we to adapt? All of these questions -- and more -- are in our minds as we look ahead to the near future.

Join Procept's Ori Schibi as he shares tips for dealing with the return to work in a COVID world.

Entrepreneurial Skills: ALIGNED - Creating Worthy Goals
by Amber Howard

The classic S.M.A.R.T. criteria are great for defining objectives and requirements. It's important to be specific, measure what matters, and ensure we have clearly-defined, actionable steps to take. Having said that, a S.M.A.R.T. goal does not necessarily inspire us to leap out of bed each day. We define goals to drive us to expand so goals must be big enough to cause us to grow beyond what we know how to do in order to accomplish them. The results we desire come when we are pursuing goals worthy of our lives.

In this powerful video, join Amber Howard as she describes how to create A.L.I.G.N.E.D. goals. Discover what becomes possible when we have goals that really challenge us to go beyond what we know, and discover the truth of Thomas A. Edison's famous quote: "If we did all the things we are capable of, we would literally astound ourselves." Come discover how you can astound yourself!
