Creating Charts in Excel and PowerPoint

Friday, March 15, 2019:  11:00 AM - 12:30 PM


The registration period has closed for this event.

 

Charts and graphs help people make sense of data and understand it quickly. Charts can be used to summarize, to make a comparison, show a relationship, highlight a trend, and more. They help your audience 'see' what you are talking about. In Excel and PowerPoint, it is easy to transform figures and labels into a picture that makes a clear, simple statement. This introductory workshop will show you how to convert your data into an easy-to-understand chart. We will discuss chart best practices and how to link to your data so the chart automatically updates when your data changes. This session will incorporate instructor-led demonstration and hands-on guided practice.
