In-depth Microsoft Excel, Dashboard and Business Data Analysis Training In Abuja

, , No Comments
Finally, next week, we'll be having for our Abuja peeps our unrivalled quality Excel training class designed for working busy professionals.

I've already booked my flight for the training class and we are at the last stage of planning. People have registered and many more have asked for a slot. But there are still some open slots; we operate on a first pay first given basis. So if you know anyone interested in the training, kindly forward this post to them.

The training is a very hands-on one and the participants will get business sample/practice data that will mirror the type of situations they will face at work. We cover all the deep and productivity boosting aspects of Excel. They will also get videos of the training we use for our online training students, with the practice and assessment files. 

The Lagos one is currently holding. In fact, I am making this post from the training room. We started yesterday. 12 people turned up, and the feedback has been great. Almost all the industries are represented: Oil and Gas, Maritime, Telecommunications, Banking. Pharmaceutical, Manufacturing and others. The knowledge share and network effect have added to the training value for the participants. And we have managers, business owners and mid-level to senior-level staff. All experienced busy professionals. The type we target with our training.

Date: 18th Friday and 19th Saturday, March 2016 (9:00am to 5:00pm daily)
