Do you, or your team, find you spend way too much time reformatting data before it can be useful?


Ever had someone tell you, "you should be using VLOOKUP to do that"?

If you have answered "yes" to any of these questions...this course is perfect for you!

Onsite. We come to you!

  • That’s right … no travel or parking hassles because we come onsite to you on a day that works for you and your team. We travel all over the greater part of Auckland, from Orewa down to Pukekohe delivering group sessions. Need training laptops? Not a problem. We can bring laptops for you to use, no charge. We have 6 to share.

Here’s What You'll Discover in this Workshop:

Expert Guidance

Guided learning, covering only what you need to become a proficient in the topics in this course. Learners will also learn how to avoid those scary 'gotcha' moments so that they are fully supported after the training!  And if they need assistance after the learning, all they need to do is email and we'll be right there to help.

Content that works!

The questions, feedback and suggestions from the many, many people who have completed this workshop have helped hone this learning so that it really works. We know just what learners need to know to have them working confidently in Excel. No waffle and no 'technical-speak'. No wasting your time!

Support resources

Learners are fully supported during and after the workshop with a comprehensive workbook. A print copy of the learning, along with file downloads for every exercise we cover together. We use these to practice during the workshop, and they are super popular as a reference to support the learners after the training.

Certificate of Attendance

Need proof of your Continuing Professional Development (CPD)? On completion of the workshop, by request, we will send learners a “Certificate of Attendance” confirming their participation and the duration of the training session.

"This was a great course"

I will save 1 to 2 hours a day and additional time for my team as I will be running them through some of the content. Thank you!! This was a great course.

"I learnt lots!" 

The accessible language used and explanations was what I liked most about the course. I spend most of my day in Excel so the quick tips will save me hours of time a week. So impressed with how the whole group went at a steady pace despite different levels. Sharyn, you're a star! Very enjoyable and I learnt lots!

Content that works...

The questions, feedback and suggestions from the many, many people who have completed this workshop have helped hone this learning so that it really works 


Module 1: VLOOKUP to cross-reference data


In this module, not only will you learn how to create VLOOKUP functions, you will learn how to identify common problems that prevent VLOOKUPS from working.

Data can be quirky! You'll learn how to fix problems by preparing your data so that it will work with a VLOOKUP function. AND you'll learn the tips, tricks, hacks and complementary functions that will have you creating VLOOKUPS that rock!


Module 2: Using Tables

The Table feature in Excel offers so many time-saving benefits.

Create dynamic, multi-functional lists so that you never have to reset your ranges again.

Learn how to use Tables to name these dynamic ranges and insert them into your formulas. AND how to use Tables and Pivot Tables together to save time resetting ranges. So great!


Module 3: Pivot Tables

You may have heard about them...seen them...even attempted to create one .

Pivot Tables aren't that scary when you are shown the best way to create them.

Learn how to consolidate your data quickly into POWERFUL reports.  

It changes your life!

AND, learn how to avoid the 'gotchas' that Pivot Tables can offer up (yikes!)
