Sharyn Baines

Hi, I'm Sharyn Baines,

Certified Microsoft® Office Specialist 

for Excel at Work

This course does a deep-dive into some powerful, time-saving Excel features, covering topics that my clients continuously ask me to cover when I'm delivering workshops.

If you are serious about wanting to improve your skills in Excel you will benefit hugely from knowing how to...

  • confidently import and export data
  • master using Lookup functions to combine and cross-reference data
  • prepare data so that it can easily be used in formulas and reports
  • use Tables to reference dynamic ranges - no more having to reset your ranges
  • quickly consolidate and analyse data into meaningful PivotTable reports and PivotCharts
  • confidently work in existing files that include all the above

These fantastic features are a MUST to have in your Excel 'tool-box'. 

Gaining confidence in how to use these features AND understanding how others have used them to create powerful formulas and reports moves your skills up more than a couple of notches!

If you're already knowledgeable in the topics covered in our Excel Essential Skills course and our Excel Organising and Analysing Data course, and you're ready to fast-track your skills to the NEXT LEVEL, I'd love to help.

Let me guide you through each topic, showing you how to get the best out of each feature AND how to avoid the many 'gotcha' situations that I have seen so many people fall into.

Your Excel Combine, Analyse and Report Workbook

It's no secret that we often need to refer back to our notes when steps are a little more complex, right?

When I'm learning something new I'm a prolific note-taker! 

That's why I've created a step-by-step workbook for you. It's a copy of the online learning in print form, with comprehensive notes, screen-shots, shortcuts and tips already created for you.

Just download and use it to cross-reference as you follow along with the training. Excellent for offline reference too. Keep a copy in your laptop bag or drawer at work. I had one lady tell me she kept a copy in her car, just so that she knew it was always handy!

Bite-sized sessions that fit into your schedule

No having to drive to a course, find parking and then sit in a room for 6 hours (or more). Make this learning fit into your schedule. No having to worry about being late to pick up the kids, sitting in traffic, or losing a full day at work.

Perfect if you're...

  • super busy
  • live out of town and can't get to workshops
