The “Modern Excel” Vibe is Taking Over This Year’s Speaker Lineup.
Come Hang Out With Us… And Oh Yeah, Attend Our Sessions
Getting the Band
Holy cow folks, am I stoked! Look at that lineup! I’d go to this event (PASS Business Analytics Conference) just to HANG OUT with these people. Other than the Excel MVP Summit at Microsoft HQ, you don’t ever really find this many “EXCELebrities” in one place. (See what I did there? I made a new word! Let’s make it stick.)
But unlike the MVP Summit, this event is open to the public. Come hang out with us. And oh yeah, attend our sessions too!

Full Day Pre-Conference Sessions by Rob/Avi… and Chandoo!
Thanks to all those who attended our past Excel to Power Pivot webinar on January 20th. Some of the attendees also joined us later for our first ever online class. For those who missed out, keep reading to learn about our upcoming options.
First of all, it is a joy and a privilege to speak to all of you about my favorite topic – Power Pivot/Power BI. So thank you for giving me that opportunity. My favorite part was the Q&A session at the end where I got a chance to interact with all of you. At the bottom of this post you will see some of the key questions, that were asked and answers. I figured that might help all the readers of this blog.
We plan to be running these webinars every month; best way to stay informed of our upcoming events is to subscribe to our blog. We are locked onto the Citrix/GoToMeeting platform, which has performed flawlessly for our recent events. But we are looking to increase the maximum capacity, to accommodate more attendees.
There is a special opportunity, to attend our webinar on February 3, as part of the BA marathon, being conducted by the SQL PASS folks. Details as below:-

Yes, I am collaborating with the “awesome” Chandoo for this Webinar. Gosh!
…now as promised here are the popular questions from our past webinar.
Questions from past Webinar
Some questions were asked over audio and others via the chat window. Some of these topics are meaty enough that we will follow up with full blog post and/or YouTube Video.
By Avi Singh Few of you have inquired about the learning options now available. This may help you choose. Remember, that you can also mix-and-match. Many students attending Live classes also buy the Recorded course (available at a discount). Live…

We wish all the readers of PowerPivotPro a very happy new year. We wish that you get your
groove power on this year :-). I have never been big on New Year’s resolutions. For good reason; reportedly only 8% of people achieve their New Year’s resolution. Sharing your resolution socially and publicly, is one factor that could help you get there though (check out other factors).
So here I am, going out on a limb and saying:
I will help a thousand people to start using Power Pivot
That is my BHAG (Big Hairy Audacious Goal) for the year. I had a late start in 2014, but here is how many I helped last year (via training, webinar, workshops, consulting).
Here is a geographical representation. Yes that’s an embedded Power View (view full screen); more on that in a later post.
In order to get to this goal, we will continue existing offerings but also add some new ones:-
New! Live Online Class in January
I am excited to offer our first live online class. Click below for details and registration.
There are limited seats for first online class as we ramp this up.
