I’d like to show you how we run our Excel Charting courses in Aeternus. I promise that after attending our Excel Charting course, your Excel charting skills will definately go up by several notches. As an example, I plucked out a pretty line chart from the Economist Magazine August 2009 issue.

Imagine you can create such magazine quality charts directly in Excel!

The benefits:

  • Refreshing way to present charts.
  • You do not need expensive charting software.
  • Explain your charts to management with your commentary.
  • Carry this skill everywhere you go.

The process:

Step 1: I started with data in a typical worksheet.

Step 2: Using the above figures, I insert a typical Excel line chart.

Step 3: We will coach you through detail steps to produce this Excel chart. Clearly, the results speak for themselves.

Once this chart is created, you simply need to update those numbers and new charts are redrawn. You can also update your expert comments right inside the chart!
