(Read reviews)

Price: $199


Using Excel™ and PowerPoint™ to Tell the Story of Your Data

We have all sat through boring presentations where every slide is a table of numbers. You might even be guilty of sharing your data in this way.

To present your data in a format that is compelling and memorable requires creating understandable slides that illustrate the message you are trying to convey.

The good news is that putting together a presentation that tells the story of your data is much easier than you think.

This webinar focuses on the efficient presentation of your Excel data in a PowerPoint presentation. You’ll discover how to format and extract key insights from your Excel data and then design effective charts and graphs to help you tell a great story.

Your instructor will demonstrate exactly what steps to take, and you’ll have access to a recorded version of the program to refer back to as you develop future presentations and further refine your skills.


We have 1 webinar(s) available starting between 1/31/2019 - 1/31/2019
