Course description

Escape the hell of bad spreadsheets....

Data literacy is an essential skill in today's economy. Analysts commonly spend the majority of their day cleaning data.

No matter your company or industry, you probably use Excel.

Many of the greatest pains in sharing spreadsheets can be fixed with a few pointers.

In this course I walk through my 10 Commandments of Spreadsheet Collaboration -- what not to do with spreadsheets, and what to do when you see problems.

I like helping people manage their data so they can think more creatively.

Armed with a liberal arts degree and a master’s from a leading business school, I set out into the world to become an amazing analyst.

Over the past few years I have worked on projects ranging from Canadian retailing to neurosurgeon compensation.

While I had big ideas about making an impact to the business, I felt drowned and overwhelmed in the data. There was no way to see the forest, because I was stuck in the trees of confusing spreadsheets.

Since starting my blog, I’ve written hundreds of posts. I’ve launched courses, written ebooks and developed a great network of Excel and analytics enthusiasts.

Through this experience, I’ve noticed patterns of what makes a good analyst. Specifically, I’ve seen the best and worst in Microsoft Excel and data analysis.

RankedBlogs.com and Feedspot.com have both recognized me as a top online authority on Excel. This mastery forms the basis for posts on business analytics, career management and innovation which have been featured on leading sites like Excel.TV and Brazen.
