Pre-Conference Educational Session

Dr. Sharon Jones10 Functions Every Excel User Should Know
Wednesday, May 13, 2020 | 1:00 PM - 3:45 PM

By Sharon Jones, Ph.D., thedot. Consulting

During the past 10 years, we have seen a wave of innovative, big-data software designed to analyze, manipulate, and visualize data. Yet, the Microsoft Excel platform remains the go-to product for those looking to report and make sense of their data. However, Excel can be overwhelming and is often underutilized. There are so many functions and formulas available that learning them all sometimes seems like an impossible task. In this session, Dr. Jones will bring clarity around Microsoft Excel functions and highlight 10 functions every Excel user should know and master. Participants will leave with a succinct list of functions that will increase time and productivity.

Separate registration is require for this event.  The cost is $125 for members and $150 for non-members.  You can add this session to your conference registration using the online form at the link below.
