‘Find out how our students are gaining an unfair advantage at work with our custom online Excel Courses and Training

If you consider yourself a beginner or intermediate user of Excel this course will cut through the Excel overwhelm and confusion and have you producing work in Excel that will get you noticed by your line manager, colleagues and the executives in your company.

This is the only Excel course on the market purpose-built to transform the Excel skills of corporate professionals or aspiring professionals including analysts, accountants, controllers, PMO’s, project managers, management consultants and other corporate professionals.

If that includes you then read on to find out how this course will transform your Excel skills. How will you get an unrivaled Excel Training Experience? Our goal is simple, we want to transform your Excel skills. So far, we have done this for over 1000 professionals in two ways:

1. You will learn our proprietary 4:3 Excel framework

We don’t teach you Excel the way other courses do. Our course has been created by professionals who have spent decades solving hundreds of Excel related problems in dozens of global companies. From solving hundreds of Excel problems, we have seen that every business scenario needing Excel can be boiled down to three types of problems and there are four possible ways to solve them, aka the 4:3 Excel framework.

The three types of Excel problems are:

Storing or tracking data: Such as financial data like journal entries, accounting data like accruals, project data such as milestones or status updates, employee data, timesheets, holiday tracking, etc

Data Analysis: whether ad-hoc analysis or building models for ongoing analysis. Think profit and loss analysis, project timeline analysis, variance analysis, resource forecasting, staff rotas, etc.

Providing data insights: Building tables, reports and dashboards are the biggest opportunities. you must make your mark with various audiences and there is no room for error.

There are four approaches that will solve these problems!

Finding specific information: We want to extract and pinpoint the exact information we need from lists of data

Using logic to manipulate information: The foundation of analysis is the ability to put rules around data and make sure it does what we need it to do

Manipulate text data: With so much data at work being text-based such as product codes, employee data, project information, the importance of handling text data cannot be stated enough

Effective data summary: Many people think summary simply means charts and tables, it’s so much more than that. Data summary begins as analysis ends and knowing when to use the right technique at the right time is crucial to producing effective outputs

It’s within this framework that we will teach you the best way to use formulas, charts, conditional formatting, pivot tables, shortcuts and other functions. No longer will you be scrambling for random tips, ninja tricks, and shortcuts. You can say goodbye to googling for answers to Excel questions after everyone else has gone home because your report is due in the morning. This framework is a strategic Excel system that will guide you in your work and will have you producing outstanding quality analysis and reporting in a quick time frame.

2. You will get unrivalled levels of support and guidance throughout this Excel Training course

Where most courses let you down is precisely where we shine. Our support is truly world class because all of our support staff have all previously worked in global companies, they are not trainers by profession so the guidance and advice is the most highly qualified professional advice. This is very important because Excel can be quite daunting and poor teaching and advice can make things worse.

Discussions, emails and video responses to your Excel Course questions! We support you with written and video responses. Yes. If we feel a written response doesn’t do you justice, we will create a video just for you!

But regardless of the format you can be rest assured knowing that the advice will not be fluffy or vague, it will always be in the context of solving business problems with Excel. So not only will your Excel skills improve but you will become a more effective professional in the process.

Skype guidance

Beyond what we teach, if you want hands-on guidance on Excel related work problems like a challenging report, troublesome analysis or anything else then we offer all our students lots of Skype time.

Some of the companies our students have worked at

Here’s what some of our students have to say about our Excel Training course

Here are some of the success stories our students share with us

“The course is excellent. The skills I have developed during the 6 weeks have given me the confidence to tackle advanced problems in an Investment Banking environment. Unlike other courses, the tutorials are practical, to the point and are relevant to professionals. I would highly recommend this course.”
A. Saleem, PMO Manager, London.

“If you saw the type of excel work being produced in my workplace you would be floored – or I’m sure you have seen through your career. I’m one of those that knew the underlying power of excel but had thought the time and energy to fully learn was lost at this point in my career (I’m not so early in my career), and I could just get by as a lot of PMs are doing/have been doing with various excel hacks and weird workflow tricks (as I believe you mentioned, many consider it just a “spreadsheet”). You would laugh at a recent pivot table work-flow that was handed to me for a simple excel task – I changed that immediately after your training.” – Brian, Project Manager, USA

“Sohail’s courses have provided me with the guidance and traction to hugely grow my earnings – in fact, trebled my income over the past few weeks upon completion. This was due to the fact there’s a formula that for me clarified core missing pieces. Most importantly, Sohail’s courses helped me revise and reassess how I presented myself to my intended audience (the selling course) and gave me the tools I needed to make the difference (the excel course). For me, this has been a real game changer and a catalyst. Don’t hesitate to do both parts of the course”. – James Barton-Ginger, Project Manager, New Zealand
