Formed in 2009, Excel with Business was created by founders Marc, Vin and Chris to solve a problem close to their hearts – ineffective Microsoft Excel training. As three Strategy and Management Consultants they understood the importance of being able to apply MS Excel skills in a business context.

The main issue was that too many Excel courses were focussing on the software functionality rather than how that was applicable in business. They taught everything, creating long and laborious courses – rather than focusing on the most business-relevant parts of Excel… so an idea was born:

A business relevant Excel training course that was affordable and personalised to each person taking it.

The first Excel course quickly attracted over 100,000  users. Fast forward a few years and we have expanded our focus on improving personal productivity and helping people achieve their career ambitions through a comprehensive library of 50+ Microsoft and Business training courses. The principles of getting the right training to the right user remain and has become more sophisticated through the introduction of the filter on many courses.

We take learning seriously but have a lot of fun creating it and attracting new people to learn with us.

We have in-house Microsoft experts that write our courses and run live classes and all of our courses are written by subject matter experts, many of which are published and have years of industry and academic experience.
