Excel for all


Many people are using Excel – a much lesser number are using it to its full potential – in fact a large number of people do not even know what that potential actually is.  

  • Badly designed models
  • Time wasted in duplicating entry
  • Incorrect reporting
  • Unnecessary Repetition of routine tasks
  • Others regularly download data from other systems such as databases to Excel files after which they then rework time and time again. 

So what is the solution?

The first step would be to ensure that management are fully aware of the potential of the software and the benefits it can have in their industry.

The next step is training staff to the required level ….

The third is having used a professional company who not only provide a first class service, but also give users unlimited after training support (via Help Desk) to ensure that the training results in true super users and value for money.

We have several options available to maximise skills sets of users :


Users who are new to the software, those who are self-taught but now wish to know the intricacies of spreadsheet design, short cut and best practice.   This course is also useful for eradicating bad habits and demonstrating the potential of the software.


For the person who has an existing knowledge of the software who now need to take their skills to the next level.   Also includes shortcuts etc   Data Handling


Those who need to maximise the potential of the software, including creating interactive dashboards, live linking to external data sources and automating processes.

Full specifications are available for all courses and can supply pre training assessment as well as if necessary an in-depth analysis of current level of use.

The sessions above can be run onsite at your premises, for which we can supply training machine, cables, or alternatively at our open venue as also detailed.


Our open courses take place at the Travelodge Conference Centre just outside Cumbernauld.  As with all training each person attending will be given full course documentation and unlimited access to our after training Help Desk.   Those attending are invited to bring examples of problematic files, or projects with which they would like some help or advice and our trainer will be happy to oblige.

Refreshments are provided with Lunch in the nearby Milano Italian Restaurant.
