ONLINE AND IN-PERSON (SOCIALLY
DISTANCED) EXCEL TRAINING

H

ow do you help participants feel confident online with Microsoft Excel?
You host a Zoom training first! That is exactly what the BSIA did.
Learning how to be comfortable with having both the Zoom screen and
the Excel spreadsheet on the monitor at the same time as well as moving in
and out of breakout rooms for additional instruction made all the difference.
On Aug. 18, the BSIA hosted Excel Level 1 and 2 and on Aug. 25, most of
the participants returned for Excel Level 2 and 3 with our superb instructor,
Edward Baraghoush. Who knew that pivot tables could be so exciting? We look
forward to Edward's in-person instruction on Oct. 14 for Level 1 and 2 and Oct. 21
for Level 2 and 3 with social distancing, small class sizes, participants bringing
their own lunches and additional sanitation and hygiene procedures.

Meetings between retailers and suppliers? Ask yourself: What speakers would I enjoy
