Description

There is a saying, “a picture is worth a thousand words”. In Excel that means finding ways to represent numerical data pictorially so that your audience can quickly and easily understand it. It's often easier to look at a chart, a graph or something visual than to just look at a set of figures.
In this session you’ll learn how to create and enhance the appearance of traditional charts such as bar charts. You’ll also learn how to create Sparkline Charts (really useful in dashboards), infographic-style charts and how to represent data in a visual way without using the charting features at all.
 

 

Why should you attend

Until a few years ago it was enough to take a set of numbers and create a bar chart or pie chart. Although in the right situation these traditional charts are still appropriate, things have moved on and we're constantly hearing words like Data Visualization and Infographic. It's time to get your Excel-related business and communication skills up to date and learn how to use it to present data in the modern world.
