Overview of the webinar

"Every Picture Tells a Story" is a popular saying which is true not only in everyday life but in Excel too. Behind your set of numerical data is a story waiting to be told. The telling of this story needs to be to-the-point, easy to understand and engaging. Data visualization is the representation of numerical data in a visual format so that your audience can quickly and easily understand it and gain insight from it. This training will cover one area of data visualization in Excel - Charts.

You will learn how to create, enhance and customize charts from your Excel data. We will start with traditional charts such as bar charts and line charts, before moving on to more complex and modern charts such as combo charts, Sparkline charts and The People Graph.

Who should attend?

This training is categorized as basic-to-intermediate. It is aimed at users who have little or no knowledge of how to produce visuals in Excel. Attendees should be familiar with how to navigate around an Excel workbook and how to enter and edit data. Although the training will be delivered using the latest version of Excel, this training is relevant for users of Excel 2010 and above. 

Why should you attend?

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. This session will get you started.
