EXCEL REFRESHER COURSE MEETUP – Monday, February 26th, 2018

Excel is a critical job tool and as a career relauncher, you’ll need a foundational level of proficiency to get hired and perform on the job.

This hands-on workshop will include discussing the general purpose of Excel, learning how to navigate and covering basic functions and formatting. It’s an excellent course for those who haven’t used Excel extensively and would like to start getting their feet wet as well as for those who simply need a refresher.

95% of “normal” Excel skills boil down to a few basic tools and we will be learning and practicing those skills. Course content will go as in-depth as time permits. Please bring your device to work on as well as any questions you may have and we’ll do our best to answer them!

While this is a free MeetUp, Whole Foods will be supplying lunch so there is a $10 lunch fee. 

 

Christopher Danz –  Whole Foods

Many of you already know Christopher since he has been supportive of Back to Business since the beginning!  You may have met him during our Networking Sessions at the Conference and when he represented Microsoft addressing technology (Excel!) during the 2015 Conference.  Christopher is now with Whole Foods, our Conference Lunch Sponsor, and is looking forward to working to get you up to speed on Excel.
