Are you looking to improve your Excel skills? Perhaps you have been trying to understand which Excel formulas are worth learning? Maybe you have been searching for yet another PivotTable tutorial? Or tried to understand what the best Excel chart is to make your current report more effective? In fact, you may have tried books, search engines or even resorted to bribing Dave, the office ‘Techie’ with a coffee for some much-needed Excel guidance. And yet you are still only comfortable with the Excel basics or can randomly tackle something a bit more advanced. We want to help you change that with the help of our Excel classes. When we started Earn and Excel, we decided to set a lofty goal for ourselves: to create the best online Excel training for corporate professionals. We don’t just want to teach you random Excel tips and tricks, with our experience we want to show you how to truly leverage Microsoft Excel to become highly productive and insightful for your company.
We do things very differently because we tap into the vast experience of our course instructor’s career. Our instructor, Sohail Anwar has worked in the financial services as a consultant analyst and project manager in some of the biggest global businesses for the last 12+ years. He credits the improvement in his Excel and VBA skills as being the biggest factor in going from junior to senior roles in a short time frame. From tackling every kind of problem that all corporate professionals face, Sohail spotted a pattern in the way Excel needed to be used at work. This lead to Sohail’s 4:3 Excel problem-solving strategy. That is there are only 3 types of problems and to solve them we need to use Excel in a combination of 4 possible ways.
This forms the basis of our Excel lessons as well as that way we teach VBA lessons and macros. Because of this experience we are able to ignore so many unnecessary functions and formulas that Excel has to offer. In fact, Sohail has seen that 80% of Excel’s functions are unnecessary and in true 80:20 fashion we focus very deeply on the most useful 20%. Annoyingly Excel keeps adding more and more functions with every new version but most of them are pointless for professionals and it just adds to the overwhelm of learning Excel. We will eradicate that overwhelm and bring clarity to your Excel training.
We help professionals, with real projects, deadlines, social lives and family obligations and without the necessary support, we have found it’s just a matter of time before you run out of either the time or motivation to continue. This is a real shame as improved Excel skills will give you leaps in productivity and help you become indispensable to your company as you get a reputation for providing great analysis and reporting. So over the last few years, while we haven’t changed the structure and topics that we teach in our Excel lessons because they are tried, tested and proven, we have evolved the support that we give our students. By spending a lot of time with our students we have found that after the right topics delivered in a proven structure, it is strong support and guidance that truly transforms a student’s ability and motivation to go from Excel basics all the way to attaining advanced Excel skills. Our unique approach to support will feel like you are right there in the Excel school with us!
