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 Back Together!
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!

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:-
One of my Intro “Slides” for Next Week(“Slides” in quotes because the live version is animated) I’ve mentioned before that I am speaking at the 2nd annual PASS Business Analytics Conference, aka BACON, and I’ve also mentioned that I’m…

Year One Was Great, So I’m Speaking Again – San Jose CA, May 7-9
I really enjoyed the inaugural PASS Business Analytics Conference, aka PASS BACON, last year. Before that, I’d never been to a conference that was even remotely aimed at “my kind of people.” That all changed for me last year. I think we have found our home.
THIS is the kind of conference we need – one that’s accessible without heavy technology expertise. One where Business Impact take center stage, and the only pre-requisite is that you enjoy working with data. (And it helps if you don’t flinch at the word “Microsoft.”)
Which suits us Excel folks to a tee, doesn’t it? They might as well put us on the front page. But an explicit mention of Excel would scare off those other people – the non-Excel people (that we outnumber 100 to 1). Honestly I think we should just take this thing over. You know, like… Occupy BACON. (Brief pause while I replace the previously-bland title of this post with precisely that).
Putting my time where my mouth is, this year I am “doubling down” and presenting two sessions – a full-day “pre-con” and a “regular” session – see below for details. AND I’m in discussions about presenting a third session as well, stay tuned on that.
Last Year’s Referral Champion Wants to Repeat!
A little bird told us that last year, more people signed up for PASS BACON using the PowerPivotPro discount code than any other discount code.
Pretty cool, eh? Anyway, there’s a discount code again this year, but I’ve been slow to share it. Let’s pretend we did that to give all those “non-Excel” websites a head start, given that whole “100 to 1 outnumber” thing (in reality I have just been swamped).
