Microsoft Most Valuable Professional for Office System
Microsoft’s Most Valuable Professionals for Office 
Microsoft Regional Director (honorary title)
Written 2 books and 1000+ blog articles 
Coached 273,000+ professionals in 2100+ organizations across 18 countries
Covers the entire Office 365 platform including Excel, Power BI, Exchange, Skype for business, OneDrive, SharePoint, Yammer.
My sessions are often referred to as “Magic Show” or “Eye Openers”
CEOs, CFOs and other senior leaders love my sessions and the only question they ask is “Why did I know all this earlier”. They can see the loss of efficiency potential in their past lives after my session. 
Unfortunately, there is no UNDO button for past life. However, after attending my sessions, you are yourself the magician. Office is a catalyst to your growth. 
I am fully aware that nobody wants Office as their revenue mechanism. However, you must realize that irrespective of your area of specialization, most probably, you are using Office for 2 to 8 hours every day. If you do not know Office and especially Excel, your talent and expertise will not be able to express itself fully. It may even hinder your growth. 
There are thousands of experts. Most of them specialize in a particular area. In my case, I have taken a lot of effort (12 years of my life) to ensure that I understand all tools from the Office 365 platform. That knowledge coupled with hundreds of thousands of actual interactions with users gives me a unique insight into the minds of users and what technology has to offer. All this is not my achievement. It is a great platform made available to the world by Microsoft. 
Unfortunately, I don’t know of a single person who has attempted to understand and utilize this powerful platform to her advantage. 
It is my passion to share what I know with the world – in a simplistic yet powerful way so that you can grow in your career and business beyond your imagination.
