Excel, create by Doing! Are you looking for a useful Excel course where you truly learn something practical and create a valuable tool? This course is for you!




Dashboard is the new "hot topic".

Many people are thinking about dashboards and stop using charts for reports! Excel dashboards are really core essential graphs displaying key information.

A dashboard is nothing more than getting the right data displayed for the right person! What important is for you does not have to be important for me! In this course you learn how you can make an Advanced Dashboard in Excel




This course is designed to show you how easy it really is. You will notice that the WAY A CHART presents data determines the value of your dashboard.

Understanding the fundamentals is important, but I truly belief you have to take action! This course is based on full action. Once you do that you will notice quickly how easy it is.

Excel is powerful but if you do not understand how to use it, your knowledge remains powerless. This course will show you how to use just a few functions and create in the meanwhile a very useful tool. This learning method is named CREATE BY DOING!

You will learn that Excel can save you a ton of time! All you have to do is take the information in this course and practice!




I understand your point, but do you know the difference between having a toolbox and understanding to use just only 2 tools. I can teach you every tool you want that you can add all the tools in your toolbox. But would you be able to see the practical value out of it? I do not think so.

What if I give you just 2 tools, a screwdriver and a saw and teach you how to create a great piece of furniture? That would be 100% more valuable and that is what I do! I teach you to make useful tools that you can use for your personal life. By doing you create your furniture! That has a lifelong value!

There is a real difference between knowledge and power. Knowledge is only potential power, without the practical use of it, it becomes powerless. Power is the knowledge that you apply in your daily life! This course is powerful because you use the tools and put it into great use.

Just check it and test it out for a month!

To make it even better, I offer this course as 30 day money back. This basically means that if this course is not right for you, you can get your money back in a blink of an eye. There is truly no reason not to do it and it has no risk at all.

Start taking actions right now and take this course. In life you have winners and losers. The winners take action at once and the losers keep on looking and waiting for the right time. In life there is never a right time except NOW! I truly belief you are winner because you are looking and reading this course.

Alright winner, it is time to take action! Click on “Take this course" and start making great pieces of Excel Furniture!

My vision of Data and the future


Why Data visualization matters!

I truly belief that Big Data is giving us all a new obstacle to overcome! Information overload is a serious challenge and with Big Data it only multiplies the issue. If you are a data miner you will know that much data has no meaning if you cannot connect any meaningful dots.

Large chunks of data, reports and tables are not effective. It is impressive to get a huge database but it is demotivating for others to read data. The biggest data trend is increasing this issue! Big Data = Information Overload x 10.

From (Digital) Information Age to the (Digital) Understanding Age

A data analyst can analyze data but the most important skill is Data Visualization! These so called "data visualizers" will develop a new skill gathering meaningful information and present it in a very understandable and effective way.

The issue is not anymore the data but the way to give meaning and communicating meaning to others. The person who can do that will have a huge advantage in the so ever growing Big Data world.

Big Data is here! Data Visualizer is on it`s way! In all of my courses I use techniques to create understandable data and present it in an impactful manner.
