Excel with Business was created in 2009 when founders Marc, Vin and Chris decided there was a more effective way to teach Excel in business. Training at the time was generally taught from the point of view of software functionality rather than from what staff need to solve their problems at work. Marc, Vin and Chris decided they could solve this problem by creating an online course that: 1. Only taught the Excel functions that people really use in business. 2. Asked a set of questions at the outset to determine exactly what each individual needs to learn – we call this the course diagnostic. The Excel course took off and since then EwB has created 20 courses covering essential business disciplines such as Web Design, Accounting and Business Analysis, as well as leisure and hobby courses such as Photography, Chess and DIY. Every EwB course is written by a subject matter expert and follows the same principle of just teaching what you really need to know.
