Outside of a dog, a book is a man’s best friend. Inside of a dog it’s too dark to read. -Groucho Marx
We don’t have a dog (yet), but we have a lot of books. Anytime I am in a bookshop, I feel like a mosquito in fat-camp. So you can imagine me smacking my lips when I saw your suggestions for favorite Excel books recently. There were more than 50 different books recommended by our readers. Of course I cannot buy all the 50 in one go. That would make Jo (my wife) angry. So I bought one that most of you recommended.
It is a book about array formulas, advanced formulas and data analysis techniques. I am eagerly waiting for the delivery to devour it. Once I am done with it, I will post a review here.
What about you? What Excel book are you reading now? Please share in comments.Continue »

My travel to US was fantastic and fun. Many thanks to Jocelyn & Rob Collie, who found a nice apartment for us and made sure we are settled down in almost no time. Weather has been excellent so far too with lots of sunshine and blue skies. We went to a nearby park the other day and kids really loved walking on trials and exploring.

After a long time, I am writing one more Excel links post. First let me share a quick personal update.
I am invited to Lome, Togo to spend a day at Ecobank – CFO conference in 3rd week of September. I will be conducting a one day masterclass on Advanced Excel & Dashboard Reporting.

My flight to Sydney has been lengthy but fun. I have reached here on Sunday morning (8AM) and spent most of the day with Danielle’s family. (Danielle is the founder of Plum Solutions. She is the one who invited me to Australia and planned this whole experience for me).
On Monday (30th April), I went exploring the city on foot. I had coffee in the beautiful Queen Victoria Building, attended 1PM church service at the magnificent St. Mary’s cathedral, walked thru Hyde park, went to Sydney central station, took at sneak peek at the new Apple store in down town, got back to my hotel, walked to Opera house to meet up with our readers.

We had 6 people turn up for the meetup. It was fun talking about Excel & our journey with these wonderful folks. Here is a pic (you can see the harbor bridge in background & 8 awesome Excel users in foreground, Click on it to enlarge).

Wow, what a weekend it has been. Indian cricket team has won Cricket world cup 2011. It has been a highly entertaining tournament and the finals were just incredible.
Congratulations to Team India for winning Cricket World-cup 2011.

Stage is almost set for my first international Excel workshop. That is right. I am doing a physical excel workshop on Intermediate & Advanced Excel at Maldives between January 23 and 27, 2011. I feel quite excited to do this.
While I derive immense pleasure and learn lots of new things by running Excel School, there is one nagging problem. It is an online program, so the scope of physical interaction with students is limited.
Doing a physical class is a great way to meet new people, gather material for new content, get ideas, learn new things and get challenged. And that is why I am looking forward to do my workshop in Maldives next week.
If you would like to join this workshop: Please call Mr. Guru Raj, Training Manager at IIPD, Malè. His number is +960 7625338. (Workshop agenda)
Because I will be busy with the workshop next week, I will not be able to post much on the blog. I have requested Hui, our guest author to keep you all engaged. So expect some delicious stuff from him while I am away.Continue »
