Impress your boss. Impress your colleagues. Turn drab into fab. Tell your story with awesome charts in Excel. This webinar will equip you with the knowledge you need to turn your numerical data into a set of engaging, attention-grabbing and easy-to-understand visuals!

Excel - A Beginner’s Guide to Effective Charts is your step-by-step guide to mastering one of Excel’s most powerful features. Whether you’re presenting data at work, managing personal projects, or simply love numbers, this training is designed to transform you from an Excel novice into a confident chart creator!

“Every Picture Tells a Story” is a popular saying which is true not only in everyday life but in Excel too. Behind every set of numerical data is a story waiting to be told. The telling of this story needs to be succinct, easy to understand and engaging. For most people it’s much easier to understand data, uncover important insights and make better decisions if that data is displayed in a visual way.

Drab-to-Fab. Engaging. Attention-grabbing you can create a basic chart in Excel with a couple of mouse clicks or even a single keypress but the result is very plain and not at all engaging.

This training will teach you how to make your charts more visually appealing so that they grab people’s attention. Infographics are a popular way of presenting data. After participating in this course, you’ll be able to convert a bland chart into an awesome infographic with just a few mouse clicks!

  • Learn how to select the most appropriate chart to convey your message
  • Learn how to create a chart from a set of data and change its appearance
  • Learn how to create infographic-style charts
