Participants will create a data model with a range of data sources using Power Pivot and use Get and Transform to connect and manipulate a range of data sources including cloud databases, websites and Facebook. Learn how to fully utilise Excel to create interactive Dashboards, Charting tools and Visualisation techniques.

We complete the course by working through a Case Study pulling all the aspects we teach on the day together.

  • Business Case Study – We start with raw sales data for a Comedy Roadshow. We model the data using PowerPivot, creating relationships and the necessary calculations to build our interactive Dashboard for assessing Sales performance and profitability across various cities.
