I really do not recommend too many Excel products or courses (as you can probably see from my site), and I have a few rules that I apply when paying for either an Excel product or a Course for myself.
That is why I am going to take the unusual step and recommend this Dashboard Course by Mynda Treacy at My Online Training Hub.Com
A few rules I go by (just to let you know) before would recommend any online products to anyone.
1. I always read the reviews first, as many as I can find, I ‘m spending my hard earned money, I want to know what I am getting.
2. Emailing the provider and asking some questions is always good. Did they respond and is there support during and after the course?. This is really important for any questions and clarification points.
3. Is there course materials you can take away?, an option for downloadable files to keep?, and what about any online training videos, can I have them too to keep too please??
4. This is last but maybe the most important. I ALWAYS complete the course myself.
As I said, I really have a few products I would recommend, but I have completed the course myself, and it really is awesome. I am really impressed at the quality of videos and great content for the price it is offered at. There are some really solid design principles and then display principles discussed before you get into how to make your dashboard interactive and automated. Good Stuff. I have learned so much, and have already implemented some changes into my work dashboards.
So, I am really excited that My Online Training Hub.Com has offered a 20% discount on their Excel Dashboard Training Course. They have extended this special price until May 16, 2019, and registration is open until August 15, 2019.
I suggest you have a read more about it right here. Here you will find some FREE WEBINARS. I suggest you attend. Even if you do not take the course. you WILL learn something new.
So Have You Ever Had An Excel Moment Like this?
“My Excel reports take way too long to update each month/week”
“I spend hours collating and cleaning data, updating formulas and charts and then no one reads my reports anyway, what’s the point?”
“If I could just impress the boss I’d get that pay rise/promotion I deserve”
“I need to get my Excel skills up to date so I can stand out from the crowd of other job applicants”
“I’m not sure how to approach setting up my Excel workbook the right way, so it’s easy to build and maintain”
Free Excel Dashboard Webinars
If you’re not sure what a dashboard is, or how these skills might be relevant to you and help you overcome the challenges above, then you can attend one or both of Mynda’s FREE Excel Dashboard Webinars.
Webinar 1 – Excel Dashboard for Excel 2007/2010/2013/2016/2019/Office 365
The first webinar will teach you how to use Excel to build this interactive dashboard below, no additional software or add-ins required, just plain old Excel and some data.
Webinar 2 – Excel Dashboard for Excel 2010/2013/2016/2019/Office 365 using Power Query and Power Pivot
Excel is evolving; in the last couple of years, Microsoft has added new tools like Power Query and Power Pivot, to name a couple.
Embracing these new tools will not only enable you to get your work done more quickly but also since less than 1% of Excel users know these tools you’re going to have a huge competitive edge in the workplace.
It’s easy to ignore these developments and continue doing things the way you always have, but that won’t get you ahead in your career, but you know that right?
If you have Excel 2010, 2013, 2016, 2019 or Office 365* then this webinar will showcase how you can use Excel’s Power Query tool to get data from multiple sources, mash it up with Power Pivot, analyze it in PivotTables to create this interactive Excel Dashboard.
*Power Query is available with all versions of Excel 2010, 2013, 2016, 2019 and Office 365. Power Pivot is available with the desktop version of Excel 2010 and Excel 2013/2016 Office Professional, Office 2019, Office 365, or in the standalone versions of Excel 2013/2016. Power Query and Power Pivot are not available for Mac.
What people are saying about the webinars
Over 35,000 people have attended Mynda’s Excel Dashboard webinars and this is what some of them had to say:
“Thank you! This webinar has already saved tremendous time and effort. I tried some of the techniques you illustrated for a cumbersome report update that I can see will cut our preparation time by 2/3’s or more. ….awesome! Many thanks!!!!”
“WOW, just WOW
Can’t type more now – am trying to create a dashboard. Thank you Mynda!”
“The webinar was fantastic! I really enjoyed every moment. As you said, it was fast paced, but I am so excited to go back and review the presentation. We have been trying to get a dashboard started for my department and this really motivated me to take the lead. Thank you so much!”
“Oh. My. God. I know nothing! My jaw dropped a couple of times as you casually mentioned a way to manipulate PivotTable data. That’s the problem with being largely self-taught – there are huge gaps in my knowledge.”
“I presented my first dashboard to the CEO yesterday and he was ecstatic. Since we are downsizing I was very worried about my job, but after seeing his reaction…I understand that my job is secure (for now). Thanks!”

Dashboard Course Format
If you’ve seen Mynda’s free Dashboard Webinars and you’re ready to take your dashboard skills to the next level then check out Mynda’s Online Excel Dashboard course.
It will teach you how to build amazing interactive dashboards that impress your boss, get you noticed and help you stand out from the crowd, like this incredible le Tour de France dashboard she made, which is also included in the course:
The best part, aside from the praise from your boss and colleagues ;-), is you’ll also learn loads of tips you can use in your everyday Excel work to get things done more efficiently.
What to Expect in the course:
- The course is video based and available online 24/7
- It comes with comprehensive Excel workbooks complete with notes
- 5 example Excel dashboards to keep
- There’s also an option to download the videos,
- Plus Mynda personally provides support for the first 6 weeks of the 12-month membership.
By the way, the 6 weeks of personal support is the reason the course is only open for a limited time (registration closes May 23). Mynda limits the number of classes to allow time for other projects and a break every now and again. That’s not to say she won’t support you after the first 6 weeks, it’s just that it might take her a few days or a week to reply to you if she’s out of town or busy working on another course etc.
Dashboards are an incredibly valuable tool in today’s market for consultants, analysts and managers. And when you know the tricks it can be straightforward to build highly professional and interactive Excel dashboards. That’s why this type of training is so worthwhile.
What members are saying about the course:
The previous classes have been a huge hit with many people saying how they love the cool techniques and how they’ve been able to impress their colleagues and clients by using them in all sorts of reports, not just dashboards.
“An excellent course, Mynda. You have the gift of making the complex simple to understand.
I thoroughly enjoyed your teaching. I have applied nearly everything taught.
“This was my first online training course and I was a bit dubious about how much I was going to learn. I have to say, minute for minute I have learnt more on this course than any other course I have been on. The way the course is delivered is exceptional and the learning material and exercises really cement the learning.
This course has without a doubt furthered my career and has allowed me to secure a permanent job based on the skills I have acquired from this course. I have already signed up to another course!
I highly recommend the course, but don’t take my word for it. You can read further comments from past students and find out more here.
Good luck and enjoy becoming awesome at Dashboards! Click below to claim your 20% discount.
Disclosure: I make a small commission for students who join Mynda’s course, but as you know I don’t just recommend anything and everything. It has to be of outstanding quality and value, and something I can genuinely recommend. After all, if it doesn’t live up to what I’ve promised you’ll think poorly of me too and I don’t want that. Oh, and just watching the course videos won’t transform your career, you have to actually put it into practice, but then you know that.
