Data Fundamentals - Excel

Jan 15, 2019 · Toronto, Canada

Please note, signing up on Meetup does not mean successful registration. We will contact you through email regarding the registration procedure.

The Excel course is designed for students or professionals who want a better understanding of what is likely the most widely used software in business today. It is truly an indispensable tool for anyone seeking a career in Data Analytics. While many people claim to “know” Excel, our experience has shown that most are barely scraping the surface of Excel’s capabilities as a true business intelligence tool. We will show you why Excel is so much more than just a simple spreadsheet program and teach you how to use it more effectively.

Our goal is to teach you the 20% essential skills that you’ll need to solve 80% of the business scenarios you’ll likely face in an analytics-based role.

Whether you’re just starting your career or trying to advance in your career, you will finish this course with a solid understanding of Excel and its true capabilities.


After completing this course, you will be able to:

• Cleanse and prepare your data more effectively

• Utilize the most commonly used formulas and lookup functions

• Use pivot tables, pivot charts, and slicers

• Create executive-level reporting and dashboards

• Automate repeatable tasks to minimize redundancy and improve productivity

• Apply all of your skills and knowledge by completing a hands-on real-world project

After graduating with a BBA from the University of Toronto, I began my career at Scotiabank. I worked my way up from a client-facing sales role to various analytics and reporting oriented roles. After spending about 5 . years at Scotiabank, I moved to Canaccede Financial Group where I manage an offshore data science team as well as all of the analytics and reporting capabilities across the company.
