Below is a sample of the benefits of working with one of our experts:

Excel Training Benefits

Quicker processes - Knowing the best ways to use Excel can speed up your processes – previous coaching clients have transformed their processes from taking whole days to a couple of hours.

Consistent Formulas - Complex data and reporting require a wide variety of solutions, if there are lots of exceptions then people often overwrite their formulas with hard coded numbers – causing multiple issues in future reporting. We will work with you to remove hardcoding and inconsistent formulas and improve your spreadsheets.

Avoid outdated workbooks - Often spreadsheets were set up for a specific reason but now used for more than originally intended, the spreadsheets are no longer fit for purpose and are often outdated using old methodology, which was correct at the time but no longer suitable. We will work with you to review the methodology applied in the files and ensure they are correct for the current process and easily adaptable for the future.

Remove over reliance on key team members - In some organisations there is an over-reliance on key team members who are the ‘Spreadsheet Experts’ of the team as they are the only ones who understand how the spreadsheets work. We will work together to ensure spreadsheets are easier to understand across the organisation.

Confidence to make critical improvements - Sometimes spreadsheets are working, so people are afraid to make changes even though those changes will have efficiency and accuracy improvements. We will work to make your spreadsheets more efficient and accurate without “breaking them”.

Suggested Topics - These are suggested spreadsheet topics, but each course is tailored to the people attending the training. Everyone will fill in a training needs form, and only the topics that you need training on will be covered during the training.

There are lots of different training courses available, 1-2-1, onsite/remote, small group sessions, large group courses or drop-in sesssions. Excel training can take place in London, or the rest of the UK or remotely via Skype.
