  • Master Excel & Data Visualisation with Microsoft 365 *Combo 2-In-1 workshop !*

Overview

MS Excel is a powerful data visualisation and analysis tool. With the latest Microsoft 365, MS Excel allows you to organise your data in familiar spreadsheets and easy workbooks, with all changes saved automatically. You can also create modern visuals that turn numbers into valuable insights for your audience.

Data Visualisation is the representation of data through use of charts, plots, tables etc. These visual displays of information communicate complex data relationships and data driven insights useful for management to make sensible business decisions. Data Analysts and Scientists often use data visualisation to explain and uncover patterns, trends, concepts and outcomes, formulate new ideas and understand relationships.

This is a 2-day MS Excel mastery workshop. Participants can look forward to interactive discussions with the trainer on some interesting examples, relevant insights and practical hands-on session.
