Excel spreadsheets can be an incredibly powerful tool. Many office-based roles provide dozens of opportunities to employ Excel, whether to manage simple lists or to create complex models.

For the many people who get thrown into the deep end by using Excel before properly learning the basics, this practical webinar aims to improve their knowledge of the fundamentals.

This is the second part of 5 popular webinars in 2018 covering smart ways to efficiently use Microsoft Excel. This webinar will cover a wide variety of the most useful tips and tricks which come into use every day.

If you would like to view a recording from last year, before the 2018 live sessions run, you can find them in our On Demand section.

It is not required that attendees have attended webinar 1 before joining this webinar, however, basic familiarity with Excel will be assumed. 

Please note that the demonstration will be given using Excel 2013. However, the version of Excel used in the webinar itself is of very limited importance as the points made extend to all versions.


Attendees will gain knowledge of many key fundamentals that underpin all Excel spreadsheets and will be taught to use several incisive tools and functions. Once the content of this webinar is understood, attendees will be equipped to write spreadsheets more quickly and more robustly.


Anyone who uses Excel and wants to improve their skills. Attendees should have some familiarity with excel prior to the session, but this session is not targeted at highly advanced users.
