Excel Workshop 

This will walk you through the principles of building a financial model, and help you understand key drivers of revenue, how to model them, the true costs of people and key expense areas to consider. And of course, the cash forecast so you know how long your runway is.

Excel remains a tool of choice for many businesses, often to take data from different systems to produce regular reports.

This workshop will take you through worked examples of how to manipulate raw data so that you can analyse and present it easily and effectively.

We’ll cover text functions, IF THEN ELSE logic, Pivot tables, SUMIFS and VLOOKUP. We’ll also put together some graphs for simple data visualisation and show you how to use conditional formatting to highlight key information.

It’s a long 5 hour day (that’s why we call it a bootcamp), but by learning how to use the power of Excel functions (and with tips and tricks throughout) you’ll be able to produce timely and accurate reports more efficiently than ever before. And yes, we’ll touch on Google Sheets too.
