Oh, hello! A little bird told me you're interested in learning more about Microsoft Excel. Then I told the little bird I'd love to teach you, and then the little bird said I should cut out the middle man/bird and tell you myself.
I have over ten years of experience using Excel professionally. My most recent formal job title was Vice President of Operations at a technology company, a role that was primarily analysis-based and kept me busy with project management and financial planning and analysis, both of which utilized Excel models I built myself. Excel, however, has at least as many simple uses as it does complex ones; that's why I am equally as passionate about building beautiful, functional spreadsheets for ordinary things as I am about writing formulas that take up multiple lines of the formula bar. I have lots of administrative experience with Excel—creating user-friendly forms, formatting table-heavy documents that work better in Excel than Word—as well as experience integrating Excel with other IT solutions, like a macro-enabled Excel spreadsheet that a sales department used to create custom PowerPoint presentations.
I also run an Excel workshop called "Excel After Dark: Cocktails & Spreadsheets." Students love the workshop environment, which is focused on learning new ways to solve ordinary and extraordinary Excel problems.
As an instructor and perpetual student of Excel myself, I feel that students often learn the best when they have a real-life problem or challenge in front of them. I've faced many over the years, and come to learning sessions armed with examples and solutions.
