Please register at https://ga.co/2k2JzXV About This Workshop: We’ve all heard of Microsoft Excel, and yet a surprising number of people have little to no experience using it.

You’ll learn various functions to help you organize and analyze data and go through situational overviews of time-saving shortcuts to improve your efficiency dramatically.
