Don’t get left behind! There’s no denying that dashboard and data visualization skills are already in demand for Excel users everywhere.
That’s why last week I told you about the fantastic dashboard course that Microsoft Excel MVP, Mynda Treacy has put together over at My Online Training Hub.
I just wanted to remind you that the 20% early bird discount ends Thursday, Aug 16, at 8pm in Los Angeles to be exact.
Dashboard skills can be very good for your career. Just read what one of Mynda’s students had to say:
„After taking your current dashboard course I designed a couple of dashboards / functioning prototypes and sent them to the Executive Group by way of shameless self promotion.
Long story short, I got a new position out of it! – Fraser McKay“
Mynda’s course will have you standing out from the crowd in no time, just like Fraser, with the skills to build interactive reports like this amazing Sales and Marketing dashboard:
Free Excel Dashboard Webinars
If you’re not sure what a dashboard is or how these skills might be relevant to you, then you can attend Mynda’s FREE Excel Dashboard Webinars.
Here’s what Ted said about Mynda’s 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.““
Webinar 1 – Excel Dashboard for Excel 2007/2010/2013/2016

Mynda shared this email with me from Kerry (with her permission), a member from a previous class:
„I have to tell you that I just downloaded the Session 4 workbooks. They are fantastic. I thought I would have to take notes in order to recall your instruction. Not at all – it is all in the spreadsheet. Your online tutorials and download material are extraordinary. I am so impressed.
I will be recommending your online training to my colleagues. Your workbooks are easy on the eye and very easy to understand.
I am terrified by the thought of writing formulas. You explain them and make it look so easy.“
