Two Days in Indy to Make You a (Happy) Data Rockstar
Hey folks, I will be teaching our first-ever Indianapolis class in August. (Yes, we are relocating our secret rebel base, aka PowerPivotPro HQ, from Cleveland to Indy in July).
I LOVE teaching these classes. There’s a certain vibe to them – of optimism, improvement, and friendly unity. It’s FUN to meet other people similar to yourself, and to see that you are FAR from alone in the world.
But make no mistake – the name of the game is professional development, and dramatic expansion of your data superpowers. The fact that it’s fun is merely an enhancer, a multiplier. It helps hold your attention, and inspire/encourage you to greater achievement.
***Only 10 Spots Available, So Reserve Yours Quickly!***
Since this is a new town, we decided to start kinda small, and only booked a 10-student classroom.
But in the past, Indiana students outnumbered Ohio students even when we held the class in Cleveland (!), so we might fill up quickly. We’ll find out soon enough.

Optional Gathering/Dinner on “Middle” Night

(Can You Spot MrExcel Himself, Bill Jelen?)
On the night of the first classroom day, we’ve been running an informal gathering at a local restaurant, and many people reported that it was one of their favorite social outings ever. Just being surrounded by people with similar backgrounds, mindsets, and problems is a unique experience, especially for the Excel crowd.
Totally optional, but we usually end up with about 75% attendance, and attendees often describe it as one of their favorite all-time experiences. Because, you know, how often do you get to go out socially with other data geeks?
Included: Thumb Drive, Lunch Both Days, and 50% Off Online University
All Students Receive a PowerPivotPro thumbdrive containing the materials from the course:
And also a 50% off discount code to the online video course. Past students have found it to be a helpful “reinforcement” to the live class (as well as covering topics that we don’t have time for in two days), so we have decided to offer it as a bundle.
