Excel Speakers are a BIG Presence at This Year's PASS Business Analytics Conference

The “Modern Excel” Vibe is Taking Over This Year’s Speaker Lineup.
Come Hang Out With Us…  And Oh Yeah, Attend Our Sessions Smile

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!

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.

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).
