Comments from participants

  • • “Jordan doesn’t just walk you through how to build various modular pieces you can combine to create a full-functioning dashboard. He also shows you ways to maintain your spreadsheets for future changes and how to format them in a way that makes your dashboard feel more like a standalone application as oppose to numbers filling up a spreadsheet. I thoroughly enjoyed taking this course and highly recommend it.” - Chris Newman, Sr. Financial Analyst

  • • “Excel Dashboard Pro helped reinforce that I was on the right path to mastery but in certain areas I was taking the long way around. After each lesson a lot of my work was reassessed in favor of the methods presented in the course. Not to give too much away but the section on BOOLEAN logic may change the way you use Excel – I know it did for me.” - Alex Powers, Bank Technical Analyst

  • • “This is not another brain dump of meaningless Excel tips and tricks. The course walks you through the theory of data visualization and dashboards with Excel applications. I have used Excel for thousands of hours and still found new, helpful tips in this series.” - George Mount, Economist

  • • “I love specific topics like Visual perception, Gestalt’s Law of Grouping, Data viz vs infographics, a primer on Data Visualization, array formulas, and Thinking like a Dashboard Pro.” - Rahim Zulfiqar Ali

  • • “It is amazing how this course shows you how to create stunning visualizations with simple Excel techniques, NO complex programming in VBA, just excel formulas. Don’t be fooled by the title and think this is just another Excel course with tricks. If you take it, you will learn how to think differently about Excel development and data visualization. It will show you how to display information appropriately to convey the right message.” - Orlando Mezquita

  • • “The course in general really touches upon the fundamentals and building blocks of how to build simple but yet complex Excel dashboards. You’ll learn how to build clean and non-bloated spreadsheets that are easy and effective at providing and displaying a visualization that truly captures and provides the information that the end user is looking for.” - Brad Edgar
