This bootcamp is an excel class that is designed to provide beginner participants with a general overview of Excel topics and specifically a good understanding of several different functions. It combines most of the material and key topics from the two workshops into an intense one-day class. Given the short timeframe and large amount of topics covered, beginner participants are expected to be able to learn quickly. The bootcamp is designed for participants who can pick up material quickly and are looking to go from relatively little knowledge of Excel to being able to achieve complex tasks and complex problems in just one day.

Toby Sullivan is a theatrical producer who has produced and consulted for some of Australia’s largest live production houses and highest profile Festivals, in which roles he has frequently smashed Excel and SQL together to develop sophisticated sales tracking and forecasting models, as well as gain valuable insights into audience profiles and behaviour.
The arts can’t afford expensive software or training so Toby has learnt how to make his way through the analytics process using basic, freely available tools. If you’re at the start of a journey bringing analytics to your role or your organisation, or are trying to demonstrate their value to justify further investment, Toby may help you overcome inertia and scepticism and get some quick, free, wins.
Toby originally trained in econometrics, holds a Masters in IT and will remain three quarters through a Masters of Analytics for the foreseeable future. During a midlife career spasm he also worked as a Pricing Analyst for a travel company, and an Insights Analyst for a corporate fitness provider.
