Leveraging Excel for Financial Data
Financial information and Excel are a natural match, but most finance and accounting professionals aren't getting the most out of Excel. Most of us are self-taught, or took the few lessons we learned at the start of our Excel journey and didn't necessarily build from there. The end result is that we do things the long way, rather than the right way. Even if you are getting the end results that serve your analysis and reporting purposes, you could be getting more valuable information, in less time and presented more professionally. This session promises to change the way you think about working with financial data in Excel.

Working with Data Models in Excel 2013+
Many Excel data crunchers mourned the loss of easy access to PowerPivot as Excel 2013 was released. However, one of its most powerful features, the ability to analyze multiple related datasets, is now included in most versions of Excel as part of the data model. A data model lets you take two different datasets joined by at least one common element and analyze them in pivot tables and pivot charts. Even if you never used PowerPivot, but have employed various other complex, convoluted, and, ultimately unwieldy methods, you'll appreciate the simple elegance of this new feature. Certified Microsoft Excel expert, Melissa Esquibel, will take you through the fundamentals of this toolset, then show how to leverage it with some of Excel's newest BI (Business Intelligence) tools.
