Brand New Excel Training Course: Excel Pivot Tables

In: BlogDate: May 19, 2017By: Claire Lickman

At Happy, we love Excel. No really, we do! It’s immensely powerful, full of fantastic features and can produce beautiful results. But we love it most when it’s easy – we don’t think anyone should have to spend days wrestling with Excel. So how is this new course going to change all that?

Hi, we are Happy

We are leading a movement to create happy, empowered and productive workplaces.

How can we help you and your people to find joy in at least 80% of your work?

We all have data, lots of data, but how much information does that result in? Probably very little.

To turn this data into information and display it in a meaningful way to others can seem daunting. We all know that Excel can do this for you, but how? We’ve heard that a Pivot Table will help, but how? You may have tried this and found that a day has gone past with little useful to show for it.

Introducing Excel Pivot Tables: From Data to Dashboard – a brand new one-day intensive course that’s designed to change all that.

If you have the stamina for a long day at high speed, we will share with you how Pivot Tables and Pivot Charts can help you to find the information in your data and share it. You’ll learn how to display data in clear tables and charts, and how to create interactive tools to help users find the information that’s important to them.

You will leave this course being able to take on enormous amounts of data and start turning it into manageable summaries with confidence and efficiency.
