Introduction

Data is the new currency but analysing it in Excel has many challenges. In this intermediate course we look at a range of functions that can help us automate the process of cleaning and transforming the data, so it is ready for analysis. We will also look at using tables to automate processes and perform simple analysis. We will then link data sets using lookup functions and finally use pivot tables and pivot charts to perform a more detailed analysis which we will present in a dashboard.

-Wayne Lear, Familia Wealth - 06/02/2024

It’s always a pleasure to liaise with Priority Management. As a participant, I found the online workshop to be informative, educational, fun, and engaging.”

-Claire Diment, Australian Chamber Orchestra - 12/04/2023

“Thanks for putting on such amazing training sessions for our employees over the past 2 weeks, we have had incredible feedback about how valuable they found the Outlook training and how great a facilitator Dani is.

“A HUGE thank you for the OneNote training that I completed. Having completed courses previously, I was expecting similar basic content and a struggle to say engaged.

I learnt a lot and have already applied many of the skills that I learnt.”

-Danielle, Elserver

"Thank you Mario & Jackie so much again for putting together such an insightful presentation. As I mentioned, the feedback so far has been really positive and a few people I have spoken to in the office today have already made some tweaks to their default settings. Mario's presentation skills were some of the best I’ve seen, and I was impressed with how you were able to navigate between screens despite the technical challenges. Thank you again and I really hope you have a lovely holiday!"

-Henry Drummond, The Law Society of NSW - 28/07/2023
