17th May Update – We only have 2 places left on this course

Imagine the time you could save if you knew just two shortcuts to reduce cut and paste fatigue, or a simple way to use Excel’s® features to eliminate the need for the majority of summing equations!

Since we announced that this course we would not be repeated last summer we have had requests for a rerun almost every month.

We have finally given in to the requests

and will be running it one more time on the 29th May.

The course is restricted to 8 delegates to ensure that we can maximise your use of the trainers – places are allocated on a first come first served basis so register today to avoid disappointment.

At one of our last Excel Masterclass, we chalked up 23 ‘Eureka’ moments – where delegates discovered a technique that would save them significant time in their day to day work.

Microsoft Excel has so many features it can be difficult to know which ones to master.  The majority of courses available are either aimed at beginners or contain advanced options that are rarely used in our industry.  That is why here at Keynetix, we have developed this industry specific course for intermediate & advanced users (users with more than 4 months experience using Excel).

The course objectives are simple:
1. Maximise your use of Excel within your company and produce high quality spreadsheets for your company.
2. Act as an internal advisor to Excel users within your organisation
3. Use techniques learnt to set up HoleBASE Report, KeyAGS and KeyLAB templates.

Don’t take our word for it – over the last 4 years we have had nearly 100 delegates attend the course – here is what they thought of the course in their own words.

“The course was a real eye-opener and I am sure that even the simplest techniques that were covered will result in significant time savings in future. The material was presented in clear and understandable way with plenty of relevant examples and the presenter made the day enjoyable and fun. Probably the most useful training I have attended for a long time!” – Tim Clifford – Geotechnical Engineer – while at Capita

“Every junior consultant should attend this course.  I dread to think how many weeks or even months I have wasted formatting data over my 10+ years as a consultant.  This time could have been saved with many of the tools and shortcuts shown today”  Jo Tidmarsh – Technical support – Earthsoft

“The lecturer was informative and showed great patience in showing the key functions in the use of Excel.  Some of the needed speedy techniques that I will be taking back to Chemtest with me.  All in all, presentation, information and layout was pleasantly surprising – certainly worth travelling 120 miles for.  Thank you. ” – Andrew Davis – Customer Service – Chemtest.

“Excellent Course with a good pace and well explained.  The hands on approach to this course makes it very user friendly” – Keith Spires –  The Drilling Academy

“The course has shown me many useful features of Excel which will translate into significant time savings when processing large and small data sets.  Well worth it.’ Judith Nathanail –  Land Quality Management

The course is restricted to 8 delegates to ensure that we can maximise your use of the trainers – places are allocated on a first come first served basis so register today to avoid disappointment.
