What can this blog do for you?

Hi, I’m Kevin Lehrbass, your Excel Coach. If you would like to learn more about Microsoft Excel then this blog is for you.  I create videos about key concepts in Excel. For example, I will show you how to find data using the vlookup function and how to quickly summarize data using pivot tables. As you improve your skills you can watch more advanced videos and start unlocking the secrets.

Why is Microsoft Excel important?

Here is one big reason: a properly designed spreadsheet can save thousands of hours of manual work.

I once created an audit tool in Excel enabling 11 people to save 45 minutes per day. They no longer had to print out 20 pages everyday and scribble notes in the margins. A relatively simple spreadsheet allowed them to structure each day and meet their monthly target.

About me

I have been working with Microsoft Excel and databases since 2001.  I have helped a lot of people in Excel over the years who are stuck and frustrated.  Like anything else, it’s important to understand and practice the key concepts.

Before becoming a Data Analyst I taught English as a foreign language which taught me to break things down into smaller concepts that people can understand.

When I’m not hovered over Excel files I enjoy listening to Spanish radio stations (‘Formato 21’, ‘Radio Red’ etc.), playing chess, and I recently discovered drawing cartoons.

I’m working towards becoming a Microsoft Excel MVP!
