Nikhil Gupta wonderfully carried out working session on Tableau to showcase some great capabilities. His focus on operationalization was so insightful. I would like to specially thank Srishty Jain, CFA, CAIA for providing this opportunity. The overall co-ordination, communication and prompt responses are really appreciated. The training techniques in all the sessions ensured that we have live case studies and interactive assignments to see the practical application of the concepts. Thanks CoLLearn team once again!

Yesterday was the semi-final between England and Denmark in euro 2020. England won by hook or crook through an extra-time penalty by Harry Kane. So looking into that I did Visualisation for the home and away team and comparisons between 2 players. Can't thank Nikhil Gupta enough for providing me with enough knowledge to make my first step as a Football Analyst. Now looking forward to analyse the final between Italy and England with the former on a roll of 30 match unbeaten streak. Let's go !!
