Boost your Excel knowledge in one day!

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 3 320 enthusiastic Dutch and French-speaking Excel users have boosted their Excel knowledge during the Excel Experience Days organised by Kluwer Training.

This autumn on 22th November 2018, for the first time, we are launching an English-language version. 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 spare you a lot of frustration.


For enthusiastic and frequent Excel users

Penetrate further into the Excel maze. During the various workshops, you will explore the vast scope of this popular software 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.


A few enthusiastic participants at the Dutch-language congress shared their opinions

  • “It was a fantastically well organised event. The system of switching trainer and location maintains the dynamism. Overall bravo!”
    Karolien Vloeberghs, Team Coordinator, Beneo-Orafti

  •  “A varied range from basics to expert level and a clearly structured day’s training. All the trainers are experts and they have the necessary teaching skills to make this ‘technical’ subject matter enjoyable.”
    Hilde Van Nuffel, Account Manager, BSN Medical-Essity
  • “An extremely fascinating and instructive day with a wide selection to choose from. For new and experienced users.”
    Niek Van den Hende, staff member, personnel, Sint-Niklaas municipal authority

  • “The great variety of sessions means that everyone can take sessions that are useful for them in their working environment. The trainers are experts. They give clear explanations and are happy to answer questions and provide extra information during the breaks or afterwards by email. Having everything on a USB stick is very handy so that you can do some of the exercises at home with the help of the slides and practise a bit. The tips and tricks, shortcuts were very useful too.”
    Jonathan Jacobs, Trainee, Greenyard Fresh Belgium

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, medium, advanced, advanced+. 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!

There you will find all the presentations and cases. Ideal to relive the Excel Experience Day at home or at the office. And to practise to your heart’s content.
