Excel for FMCG
About the course

Need a few hours back in the day? Excel is one of those tools that, until you really understand it, you've got no idea what you're missing! Advancing your excel skills can drastically speed up your day-to-day tasks and, for a small business, is vital if you’re to get on top of that to-do list.

This five-week course will take you through to an intermediate level of excel.

In particular, you will come away with knowledge on:

The foundations of excel (best practices for look and feel)
Building complex functions (the IF family, VLOOKUPs and more)
Managing data effectively (cleaning data, rearranging large amounts of data)
Analysing data effectively (pivot tables, graphs, dashboards)

You always spend the last lesson building your own excel with peers from other businesses.
