Have you ever had an Excel moment like this?
“My Excel reports take way too long to update each month/week”
“I spend hours collating and cleaning data, updating formulas and charts and then no one reads my reports anyway, what’s the point?”
“If I could just impress the boss I’d get that pay rise/promotion I deserve”
“I need to get my Excel skills up to date so I can stand out from the crowd of other job applicants”
“I’m not sure how to approach setting up my Excel workbook the right way, so it’s easy to build and maintain”
Then you should spend an hour, or even three hours, to watch the free Excel Dashboard Webinars by Microsoft Excel MVP, Mynda Treacy.
Webinar 1 – Excel Dashboard for Excel 2007/2010/2013/2016/2019/Office 365
The first webinar will teach you how to use Excel to build this interactive dashboard below, no additional software or add-ins required, just plain old Excel and some data.
Webinar 2 – Excel Dashboard for Excel 2010/2013/2016/2019/Office 365 using Power Query and Power Pivot
Excel is evolving; in the last couple of years Microsoft have added new tools like Power Query and Power Pivot, to name a couple.
Embracing these new tools will not only enable you to get your work done more quickly, but also since less than 1% of Excel users know these tools you’re going to have a huge competitive edge in the workplace.
It’s easy to ignore these developments and continue doing things the way you always have, but that won’t get you ahead in your career, but you know that right?
If you have Excel 2010, 2013, 2016, 2019 or Office 365* then this webinar will showcase how you can use Excel’s Power Query tool to get data from multiple sources, mash it up with Power Pivot, analyse it in PivotTables to create this interactive Excel Dashboard.
*Power Query is available with all versions of Excel 2010, 2013, 2016, 2019 and Office 365. Power Pivot is available with the desktop version of Excel 2010 and Excel 2013/2016 Office Professional, Office 2019, Office 365, or in the standalone versions of Excel 2013/2016. Power Query and Power Pivot are not available for Mac.
Excel Dashboard Course
After you’ve watched Mynda’s Dashboard Webinars and you wish to take your dashboard skills to the next level then check out Mynda’s Online Excel Dashboard course.
It will teach you how to build amazing interactive dashboards that impress your boss, get you noticed and help you stand out from the crowd. The best part, aside from the praise from your boss and colleagues ;-), is you’ll also learn loads of tips you can use in your everyday Excel work to get things done more efficiently.
What to Expect in the course:
- The course is video based and available online 24/7
- It comes with comprehensive Excel workbooks complete with notes
- 5 example Excel dashboards to keep
- There’s also an option to download the videos,
- Plus Mynda personally provides support for the first 6 weeks of the 12 month membership.
By the way, the 6 weeks of personal support is the reason the course is only open for a limited time (registration closes Aug 22). Mynda limits the number of classes to allow time for other projects and a break every now and again. That’s not to say she won’t support you after the first 6 weeks, it’s just that it might take her a few days or a week to reply to you if she’s out of town or busy working on another course etc.
I highly recommend the course, but don’t take my word for it. You can read further comments from past students and find out more here.
Early Bird Discount
If you register by Thursday, August 15 it’s 20% off.
So, do yourself a favour and check out the course.

Feel free to share this to your friends and colleagues and invite them to attend Mynda’s free Dashboard webinar too. They’ll thank you for it.
Disclosure: I make a small commission (at no additional costs to you) for students who join Mynda’s course via my site, but as you know I don’t just recommend anything and everything. It has to be of outstanding quality and value, and something I can genuinely recommend. After all, if it doesn’t live up to what I’ve promised you’ll think poorly of me too and I don’t want that. Oh, and just watching the course videos won’t transform your career, you have to actually put it into practice, as if reading a cookbook won’t make you a chef.
