Cohort-based Course

Create Excel-based automation processes using Power Query and Dynamic Arrays to revolutionise your month end.

Course overview

Are you stuck running soul-destroying, manual month end processes in Excel?

If the answer to that question is "Yes!" then this bootcamp is for you.

I'll introduce you to Power Query, an Excel feature that will change your world.

Then I'll introduce you to Dynamic Arrays, and show you how they can add value to real-world month end challenges.

This is a hands-on course, with plenty of practical experience offered throughout. Your class mates and I will be there every step of the way to support you.

You didn't train all those years as a finance professional to just copy & paste numbers all day. Let me give you your time back, so you can do the real value-adding work you are capable of.

* Please note, you must have an Office 365 subscription or Excel 2021, and be working on a Windows computer (not a Mac) to get the best experience from this bootcamp.

** This bootcamp includes one month of full access to the Full Stack Modeller training platform and community, giving students the opportunity to take advantage of ALL of our additional training content.
