For most professionals, the ability to organize information is quickly becoming a fundamental part of the job description. Whether you already consider yourself an expert or are just getting started with spreadsheets, this hands-on workshop will allow you to take your skills to the next level and become a “power” user.

We’ll start with the absolute basics, and quickly move on to lesser known shortcuts, functions, and features that you will be able to immediately put to use on the job. You will build confidence in your basic excel skills and gain knowledge of other useful/impressive Excel features.

  • Advanced Copy and Paste Options
  • Handling Text and Dates
  • Basic and Nested Formulas
  • Logical Functions
  • Lookup Functions (basic understanding)
