Data Visualization in Excel

Duration: 90 minutes

Are you still relying on basic pie charts and bar graphs, confusing data structures, improperly placed labels and default colors? There’s a better way.

Whether you’re an HR professional, salesperson, safety leader, administrator or finance pro, you have a story to tell with numbers—and data visualization is the best way to do it.

This session will get you started. (more details below)


WHY ATTEND

Join us for Data Visualization in Excel, and learn from Excel expert Mike Thomas how to turn your spreadsheets into a story that changes minds.

In this fast-paced presentation, you’ll learn how to get the most out of Excel’s visualization tools. Along with customizing your graphs and charts, you’ll learn how to use Excel to create Sparkline Charts (infographic style charts) and how to represent data graphically.

It's time to get your Excel-related business and communication skills up to date and learn how to most effectively present data in the modern world.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

You'll learn how to:

  • Elevate your use of traditional charts using single keystrokes, annotations, labels and notes
  • Lay two sets of data on top of each other with line-bar combination charts
  • Use Sparkline Charts to create modern images of your data
  • Stay flexible when data changes with dynamic charges and conditional formatting
  • Look beyond charts and graphs to represent your data with Shapes and SmartArt

Prerequisite: Attendees should have an introductory knowledge of Excel and a desire to heighten their ability to present data visually.

The training will be delivered using Excel 2016 for Windows although much of the functionality is available in earlier versions of Excel on both Windows and Mac.
