This is a pilot of the new virtual course

The session will look at more advanced formulas and macros using the recorder and VBA tools.

The formulas covered in this course include SUMIF and COUNTIF which will allow the user to quickly summarise data.

Macros will enable the user to automate tasks within excel. During this session, we will use the example of needing to analyse, sort, split and send data to specific email contacts. Users will be introduced to a series of macros to reduce this process to a few simple steps.

The session will run on Teams and delegates must be able to access Excel during the session

ourcambridge Speed Mentoring event new Thu 10 Dec 2020   15:30   [More dates...] [Places]

Have you ever wished you could get 10 minutes with a senior colleague to ask their advice on how they would handle something? Have you ever wondered how others approach challenging problems? This is your opportunity to ask. We are bringing together a panel of senior managers and leaders from across the University for a special speed mentoring session so that they can offer you their support and advice.

Speed mentoring offers you the opportunity for a series of short, focused conversations about a specific question or issue you are struggling with. You will rotate around four different mentors, spending around 10 minutes with each, to gain different perspectives on an issue you are seeking to resolve or a project you are trying to progress.

‘ I liked that there were a diverse background of university staff involved in the session, and all of the mentors were really engaged and enthusiastic. I felt that I could be honest about some of my experiences in the University, good and bad. All the mentors I spoke to acted as a good sound board for the issues that I wanted to discuss and they have given me some excellent advice and ideas.’ ‘ I liked that there were a diverse background of university staff involved in the session, and all of the mentors were really engaged and enthusiastic.

ourcambridge Values Workshop new Wed 30 Sep 2020   13:00 [Places]

Calling all professional services colleagues: Do you feel passionately about making the University a positive and inclusive place to work? Come and share your ideas with other colleagues. Over the past year, ourcambridge has worked with professional services staff from across the University to develop a set of core values that underpin the way we work. Embedding them as part of our culture means truly living them in the way in the way we work, through our actions and behaviours. Our people determine our culture and how we treat each other impacts on our ability to achieve the University’s core mission “to contribute to society through the pursuit of education, learning and research at the highest international levels of excellence.”. Understanding our personal values and how they align to those of the institution where we work helps us to make informed choices about what we do in the workplace and how we do it. When we are able to articulate what is important to us and why, and also to understand what is important to our colleagues, it helps us to feel positive, engaged and motivated. This is particularly important within the context of the pressures we are all currently experiencing. The values that you chose together were: Trust, Respect, Integrity and Collaboration. We would now like to invite you to share your ideas for practical ideas on how we can bring to them to life in our daily work. We have already launched a number of ourcambridge initiatives to support our work in this area and are looking to build on these while also linking up with other existing University initiatives as well as supporting new ones. Your feedback is important to us so we are inviting professional services colleagues at all levels (including assistant or academic-related staff) to take part in a focus group to share ideas. We want to be as inclusive as possible and would love you to join us. Please sign up for a sessions using the link below. We look forward to seeing you.
