Excel and Power BI Dashboard


Time remaining until 20% discount ends.


Mynda’s Excel dashboard and Power BI courses are open again!

Mynda only opens her courses a few times each year. Missing these classes will make those end of year dashboards and analytics a lot more work for you.

Take a 20% discount from September 26, 2017 until October 5, 2017 at 20:00 Pacific time on either (or both) of Mynda’s courses. I think so much of her courses I will also send you a print copy of my book (if you are in the USA) or $20 toward an Excel book on Amazon. Now, that’s a deal!

Registration closes October 12, 2017 at 20:00 Pacific time. Miss this registration and you will probably have to wait until January or later, after the new year’s dashboard crunch.

Here’s what Ted said about Mynda’s Excel Dashboard webinar,

Wow, Wow and more Wows. I have been using spreadsheets since 1982 starting with VisiCalc. Since 2002, I have taught 7 Excel one day classes that I developed myself. I call myself an Excel junkie. If I don’t get 4 to 5 hours of Excel a day, I get the shakes. Well, you have really shaken my tree.

Here’s what Gord said about Mynda’s Power BI webinar,

“Holy (insert expletive)! Relational data handling of MS Access plus graphing capabilities of Excel plus much, much more. That was amazing. Thank you Mynda for yet another informative eye-opener. Truly appreciative of your efforts.”

Excel vs Power BI Dashboards

Most of us are very familiar with Microsoft Excel, Pivot Tables, Power Pivot, and dynamic dashboards. But, you really should check out Power BI if you need,

  • more analytic power (the speed blew me away the first time I used Power BI – I could not believe it!)
  • greater variety of charts and mapping
  • ease of publishing to users nationwide or globally
  • device independence (view it on any device)

Mynda put this list of Pros and Cons together to help you decide whether Excel or Power BI is the right tool for your needs,

If you use Excel Dashboards…

Excel and Excel dashboard skills are in demand. Almost every job position requires Excel knowledge. And having advanced skills is great for career advancement.

Here’s what one of Mynda’s students had to say,

After taking your current dashboard course I designed a couple of dashboards/functioning prototypes and sent them to the Executive Group by way of shameless self-promotion.  Long story short, I got a new position out of it! Fraser McKay

Mynda’s Excel Dashboard course will have you standing out from the crowd in no time, just like Fraser, with the skills to build interactive reports like this amazing Sales and Marketing dashboard. 

If you need more than Excel, check out what you can do in Power BI…

Need more power! Need more charts! Need publishing to anywhere on any device! Checkout Power BI.

Power BI is for the Excel user who is ready for more analytic and charting power with larger data sources.

Amazingly it is easier than in Excel. Power BI Dashboards can do things you simply can’t do in Excel, and it gives you more skills to add to your resume. Thousands of people attended Mynda’s Power BI webinars where she built these two fully interactive dashboards in just one hour. 


Many have already taken her Power BI course and are enjoying the increased power as well as recognition from their boss and co-workers.

Disclosure: I make a small commission for each student who joins one of Mynda’s courses. But, I’ve been publishing Critical to Success for four years to high-performance professionals and Mynda’s courses are THE ONLY COURSES I HAVE EVER RECOMMENDED! If what I recommend doesn’t live up to what I’ve promised, you’ll think poorly of me, and that just doesn’t work for me or you.
