Types of Excel Charts & Excel Graphs Covered

The content and type of Excel charts presented are those that are typical for corporate reporting.

Given my background in controlling, finance and project management, I designed the training with this audience in mind and the typical methods used to report, communicate, analyze, check and plan quantitative information.

If you are a student taking this course, rest assured that you are well equipped with advanced Excel visualization & chart design techniques to impress any employer who requires you to create graphs & reports in Excel.

Demonstration will be done using Excel 2010, but all methods will be compatible with older as well as future versions of Excel unless otherwise stated in the video. My main focus is to introduce you to new “methods” of doing things which you can do no matter which Excel version you have.

I gained lot new knowledge especially with charts. Knowledge I never new was there. This increased my confidence and would help me in my work and be more professional. The instructor was experienced with in depth knowledge and her way of explaining and getting things done made it easy to grasp the knowledge. Moreover her after course material especially her website and youtube tutorials are also source of great knowledge and interaction. Thanks

I will not only demonstrate to you, but you will be able to follow each demonstration in your own Excel workbook. To make sure you have understood the techniques, you will complete an exercise at the end of each section (answers are included but you have to try on your own first).

I have also been told by many students that I have the ability to explain complex topics in an easy to understand manner. I think you will benefit from that.
