Boost your Excel knowledge in one day!

  • Are you novice, ad hoc or frequent Excel user?
  • Do you sometimes loose valuable time searching for the optimal solution for your Excel problem or question?
  • Do you often ask for a colleague to help you out?
  • Or do finally you look for the solution at the 'Help' button after yet another 'trial and error' message?

The Excel Experience Day is the annual place-to-be for the ad hoc, frequent and experienced Excel users and beginners alike. This congress has become a real byword in Belgium. In recent years, no fewer than 3 590 enthusiastic Excel users have boosted their Excel knowledge during the Excel Experience Days organised by Kluwer Training.

Be sure not to miss this unique opportunity!



Excelling in Excel

If you work daily with Excel, you know that this tool offers an infinite range of possibilities and applications. Often you use these possibilities inefficiently or only to a limited degree. Not because of unwillingness, but because of ignorance. And yet using Excel efficiently and intelligently can save you an enormous amount of valuable time and reduces your frustration.


For enthusiastic and frequent Excel users

Penetrate further into the Excel labyrinth. During the various workshops, you will explore the vast scope of this popular spreadsheet tool.


No fewer than 12 parallel sessions at every level

Thanks to the wide range of parallel sessions, there is something for everyone (beginner or experienced user). You put together the ideal training mix for you.

Tips, tricks and unprecedented applications to make a world of difference

Carrying out everyday operations faster in Excel often comes down to trifles. For instance, a macro or a shortcut can seriously save you valuable time.

Learning by doing

During the Excel Experience Day, you don’t just look on from the sidelines. The message is: learning by doing

Interactive sessions on the computer

As a participant in the Excel Experience Day, you can use a laptop with MS Excel 2016 (English language version). You don’t have to bring your own material. We provide a laptop for every participant. During all the workshops, you resolve concrete cases with expert assistance and you have the chance to practise in ‘real time’.

Which Excel version?

All sessions are given exclusively in Excel 2016, English-language version. Do you work with an older version of Excel? If so, contact us first and we will be happy to advise you.

No fewer than 12 parallel sessions at every level

You have the choice between three possible workshops per session. To make it easier for you to make your choice, we use the following classification for the workshop levels: basic, intermediate and expert. The Excel Experience Day can therefore provide the ultimate training mix. Ensuring the best possible learning outcome.

Plug in your USB stick at home or at work!
