Ask people what comes to mind when they think of Excel, and odds are they’ll say “spreadsheets“. The truth is, Excel is an incredibly powerful and dynamic data visualization platform for those willing to think beyond rows, columns, and primitive pie charts — and I’m here to prove it.

This course gives you a deep, 100% comprehensive understanding of Excel’s latest data visualization tools and techniques. I’ll show you whenwhy, and how to use each Excel chart type, introduce key data visualization best practices, and guide you through interactive, hands-on demos and Excel exercises every step of the way.


We’ll kick things off by exploring each of the 20+ charts & graphs introduced in Excel 2016, including:

These aren’t “textbook” demos that you can find on Excel YouTube channels; these are projects adapted from actual, award-winning work featured by Microsoft, MIT, and the New York Times. I’ve built my analytics career around data visualization, and I can help you do the same.

Excel Pivot Tables are an absolutely essential tool for anyone working with data in Excel.

Pivots allow you to quickly explore and analyze raw data in Excel, revealing powerful insights and trends otherwise buried in the noise. In other words, they give you answers.

From there we’ll introduce dashboard design principles, and share frameworks for defining clear objectives, identifying effective metrics and visual elements, and leveraging concepts like reading patterns and Gestalt principles to optimize layout and flow.
