Don’t get left behind! There’s no denying that dashboard and data visualization skills are already in demand for Excel users everywhere.

I just wanted to remind you that the 20% early bird discount ends Thursday, Aug 16, at 8pm in Los Angeles to be exact.
*Tip for aspiring Dashboard masters: you can get both the Excel Dashboard and Power BI courses in a discounted bundle from the Power BI course page.
Not sure which course? Well, if you’re quick you can still catch the free webinars and see both tools in action:
Here’s what Ted said about Mynda’s Excel Dashboard webinar:
„Wow, Wow and more Wows.
I have been using spreadsheets since 1982 starting with VisiCalc. Since 2002, I have taught 7 Excel one day classes that I developed myself. I call myself an Excel junkie. If I don’t get 4 to 5 hours of Excel a day, I get the shakes. Well, you have really shaken my tree.“
Here’s what Gord said about Mynda’s Power BI webinar:
„Holy (insert expletive)! Relational data handling of MS Access plus graphing capabilities of Excel plus much, much more. That was amazing. Thank you Mynda for yet another informative eye-opener. Truly appreciative of your efforts.“

Long story short, I got a new position out of it! – Fraser McKay“
Mynda’s Excel Dashboard course will have you standing out from the crowd in no time, just like Fraser, with the skills to build interactive reports like this sophisticated Sales and Marketing dashboard:
Power BI is for:
Power BI is for the Excel user who is ready for more. More features, because Power BI Dashboards can do things you simply can’t do in Excel, and more skills to add to your resume.
Thousands of people attended Mynda’s Power BI webinars where she built these two fully interactive dashboards in just one hour:
