My passion is empowering organizations to make sense of their own data. A few years ago, I realized there are a ton of data analysis tutorials on the internet — great! — but they were aimed at accountants and economists. There weren’t enough tutorials for statistical analyses, so I set out to design my own training materials. Today, I offer a range of consulting services designed to meet your organization’s needs. For organizations wishing to build their capacity, I half-day and full-day workshops, hands-on webinars, and one-on-one coaching services (a great option for getting staff up to speed instantly). For organizations that need quick solutions, or heavy lifting, I offer analytic consulting services. You send me your spreadsheets and desired analyses, and I’ll crunch the numbers for you. I’ve partnered with for-profits, non-profits, foundations, government agencies, banks, law firms, and professional societies. Contact me to discuss your organization’s needs.
Statistical techniques, data analysis strategies, and spreadsheet shortcuts.
Ever feel like you’re swimming upstream in data? Need to make sense of spreadsheets, but not sure where to start? Have a gut feeling that you’re not getting the most out of common software programs like Microsoft Excel? In these workshops, we cover beginner, intermediate, and advanced data analysis skills from vlookup to pivot tables. We utilize sample spreadsheets that are commonly encountered by researchers, such as survey data, outcome data, demographic data, and more. Contact me to discuss your desired customizations and my rates and availability.
Each section begins with a demonstration followed by hands-on practice.
“Thanks to you, I am feeling more and more confident about my developing Excel skills!”
“Very helpful. Learned about quite a few options within Excel that, honestly, I had no idea about prior to the training.”
“Thank you very much for the great Excel training. I have received overwhelmingly positive feedback and the staff seems very excited to start applying what they learned to their work. We also appreciate your ability to fit so much material into a few hours.”
“I thought you did a really good job handling… the multiple audiences and the range in skill level of the participants. The datasets were also appropriate examples and we could easily understand the data we were working with so that we could focus on the Excel skills… Great job!”
“This was really a great training. I really appreciated being able to work in the data as you were explaining. I hope we can schedule more time with you in the future.”
Pivot tables are the fastest, easiest way to make sense of spreadsheets. Whether you spend 10% or 100% of your day working with data, pivot tables are a must-have spreadsheet skill. Inthis90-minutewebinar, you’ll learn how to:
We’ll look at several different types of datasets together, like demographic data on people from your organization’s member database and survey responses similar to your organization’s latest consumer satisfaction survey.
These tutorials will guide you through the data analysis process. My videos are typically 2 to 5 minutes long, so people tell me they often watch a few videos while they eat lunch. I break everything into small steps. I want you to learn slowly and steadily so that you remember the new strategies forever.
