Please just call me “Peter”.

Excel trainer and consultant to over 700 organisations on over 1,900 Excel projects.

Training you using your own files to customise the training to do exactly what you want and make it both reliable and sustainable.

I have been running my Excel consultancy, IT and training company for over 20 years and love to help people become more efficient so they spend more time using the outputs of Excel than using it. So I don’t want anyone to spend time using Excel when their time is best spent doing other things.
