Overview of the webinar

"Every Picture Tells a Story" is a popular saying which is true not only in everyday life but in Excel too. Behind your set of numerical data is a story waiting to be told. The telling of this story needs to be to the point, easy to understand, and engaging.

Data visualization is the representation of numerical data in a visual format so that your audience can quickly and easily understand it and gain insight from it.

Until a few years ago it was enough to take a set of numbers and with a couple of mouse clicks, create a basic chart. But things have moved on and we're constantly hearing words like Data Visualization and Infographic. It's time to get your Excel-related business and communication skills up to date and learn how to use them to present data in the modern world.

This training covers how to visually represent your data using traditional charts (bar charts, line charts, etc.)
