Adam Colquhoun ACCA FMAATOwner/Founder
An experienced analyst and qualified accountant. You guessed correctly I have spent most of my career working in Microsoft Excel but I have never tired of it. Every so often I still find something new that I want to tell all my colleagues about.

In my younger days I fell in love with technology and computing and it feels great to now be developing a website with online training to help others in their quest for greater Excel knowledge.
