Join Oz du Soleil for an in-depth discussion in this video Sharpen your Excel skills with hands-on practice, part of Excel Weekly Challenge.
- [Oz] Hello, I'm Oz. And in nearly 20 years of working with data, Excel clients, and students from all over the world, I've noticed that there are endless resources that cover Excel tips and tricks, books, webinars, videos. But there are few resources and opportunities that exist to actually practice. But your control and confidence with Excel can only come through practice and being exposed to lots of situations. In my weekly series, I'm gonna offer challenges based on real-life situations and real-life data from my personal experiences, everything from investigating payroll mishaps to segmenting a list for buying a home.
Yes, you'll be asked to dig into problems, not just change font sizes and write formulas. Here's how the challenges work. I'll present a challenge and objectives. You can pause the video and work out a solution using the same data set. When you're ready, you can follow along as I walk through one solution. These challenges will focus on core Excel that'll come in handy whatever your role or purpose or whatever your industry is.
Beyond this, what has me excited about this series is a mission that's larger than the plumbing of Excel. There are people who have to live with the consequences of what we do with data. With practice, we get better with Excel. We get better at improving the lives of the people who count on us.
