Dashboard seminar – mark your calendars

I’m sure most readers of my blog will know Jon Peltier’s business,  and his excellent Excel/charting blog: Peltier Technical Services. Jon and I are teaming up to present a day-long training session on Excel Charting and Dashboarding. This training will take place on Wednesday, June 2, 2010, at the DoubleTree Hotel in Westborough, MA, in the Route 495 corridor near the Mass Pike.
The training balances Jon’s highly technical expertise in Excel charting and deep understanding of VBA, with my detailed understanding of dashboard design and the business decisions that drive these projects.
Tuition for the all-day, hands-on program is $300, with discounts for early registration. This fee includes meals and breaks during the day plus all course materials. Participants need to bring their own laptops.
For more details, or to register for the class, visit the Excel Charting and Dashboarding home page.
