Course Description

Looking for creative ways to present your data story?

If you’re willing to think beyond and explore more than the pie charts, then you can use Excel to achieve impressive visualizations (charts & tables) that will add credibility to your reports and presentations.

Through interactive and hands-on demos and exercises you’ll learn modern data visualization techniques that have close resemblance to creating infographics!

Fairly all the charts presented in this course can be created in both Excel and PowerPoint.


I’ll also show you how to create themes (a colour palette and fonts) that you can access across Excel, PowerPoint and Word …to save you having to look for your corporate colour codes.

We’ll dive into both simple and advanced, but creative techniques that allow you to create your own Excel charts and visually-rich tables from scratch …with confidence.
