So How Did It All Begin?


My name is Reggie Holm
Chief Excel Officer

After 15 years working in the Financial Institution and Telecommunications sectors in various Finance, Project Management, Operations Management and Consulting roles, I founded the ExcelForBankers & Business Professionals workshops.

The inspiration behind ExcelForBankers was observing the struggle that users faced when manipulating numbers, creating graphs and summarising large amounts of data.

What Is ExcelForBankers?


ExcelForBankers & Business Professionals is a series of Microsoft Excel workshops aimed at improving the spreadsheet abilities of individuals in:

  • Financial Institutions: Excel is the most widely used software application in financial institutions thanks to it's capabilities for crunching numbers and its intuitive mode of operation.
    Our workshops for Bankers use real life banking examples based on what you do as a Financial Analyst, Accountant, HR Manager etc.

  • Other Industries: For our participants in non-banking industries we tailor our sessions to the functions they perform in their sector. This enables them to acquire techniques for working with formulas, pivot tables, graphs and the wealth of facilities offered by the Excel application.

  • University or College: Ideal for the soon-to-graduate student who is looking to gain knowledge of spreadsheets or improve his/her reporting abilities.
