MPUG’s newest course, Data Visualization with Excel

“Every Picture Tells a Story” is a popular saying which is true not only in everyday life, but in Excel, too. Behind every set of numerical data is a story waiting to be told. The telling of this story needs to be succinct, easy to understand, and engaging. For most people it’s much easier to understand data, uncover important insights, and make better decisions if that data is displayed in a visual way. Data visualization is the representation of numerical data in a visual format, so that your audience can quickly and easily understand it and gain insight from it. 

I hope you’ll join me for my upcoming three-part course, Data Visualization with Excel. This training covers how to visually represent your data using both traditional charts (bar charts, line charts, etc.) as well as how to do the same using some of Excel’s non-charting tools. Learn how to select the most appropriate chart to convey your message, how to create that chart from a set of data and change its appearance, create infographic-style charts, and integrate Excel charts with other applications such as Word and PowerPoint. We’ll also cover how to how to create Sparkline charts (mini-charts embedded in a cell) and how to use shapes, symbols, and icons to create infographic-style charts.
