Do you spend hours collecting data, wrestling it into the format you need and then updating the same report that no one ever reads?
Or maybe you're neck deep in data but don't know how to use it to make sound business and marketing decisions?
Dashboards give you a high-level overview of your business, showing KPIs, trends and data comparisons... so you can use that insight to grow in smart ways.
By learning some relatively simple techniques, you can create dashboards that are automated, interactive and visually appealing.
This course will set you up to:
Each lesson is taught through bite-sized, action-oriented 5 - 10 minute-long videos, covering practical techniques you can apply to your own business.
I'll be with you every step of the way, showing you the sheet setup, the formulas and the charts we use.
For each example you'll have all the necessary raw data and formulas, as well as a final, finished template!
Everyone talks about data culture in companies, but only a few know how to do it. Good dashboards are a great first step to democratize access to data in a simple way, and this course will definitely change the way you see your data today.

I’ll tell you more about the course in a moment...
...but first let me reassure you:
Prior to consulting and creating courses, I worked as a forensic accountant, doing investigations into sanctions violations at large financial organizations.
I remember the first time I built a dashboard in Excel at work.
After a lot of headaches and frustration, I had created a presentable dashboard that gave our team oversight of whole dataset.
The dashboard wasn’t pretty, and it probably violated dashboard best principles, but it worked. It was dynamic and I clearly remember how cool that was.
However, I had no idea what I was doing. I barely even knew what dashboards were, and I certainly didn’t know there were courses and books out there that could have saved me hours and hours (and resulted in a better end product!).
Seeing the team interact with the dashboard, I realized how valuable solid data and spreadsheet skills were -- something we address throughout this course.
Today I create online courses and write about working with data, with a particular focus on how-to articles for learning data analytics and building dashboards, using Google Sheets, Apps Script and Data Studio.
Since mid-2015, I’ve been working as a freelance spreadsheet developer, data consultant and instructor.
I’ve taught data analysis and visualization courses and workshops at General Assembly’s Washington, D.C., campus and privately for clients.
Dashboards are high-level summaries of your organization's data, displayed side-by-side in a single page to highlight the key metrics and trends at a glance. They'll help you:
Earlier this year I ran a couple of webinars, and here’s what some folks were saying about this Google Sheets dashboard training course:

✅ Access to the private course Facebook group for Q&A
✅ Certificate upon completion
At the beginning of each module are templates with the raw datasets and solution files, available for your use, saving you hours of time.
Here’s a sample of what you can expect with the templates:
Each chapter includes:
These resources alone will save you hours and hours of valuable time.
Your enrollment is backed up with support.
There’s a private Facebook group for students, where you can ask questions, share your insights and knowledge, share your wins, and connect with other students.
I’ll be hanging out there to answer your questions.
Your enrollment in Build Dashboards with Google Sheets comes with lifetime access to the course material.
That way you can take a break from the material if you’re out of town, on vacation, or just swamped for a few days.
Interruptions happen, and your course videos will ALWAYS be here for you when you’re ready. This lifetime access also includes all future updates and upgrades at no extra charge.
This is my way of ensuring that Build Dashboards with Google Sheets remains an excellent long-term investment for you and your business.
