"Danielle is an excellent presenter bringing her real world, hands on experience into the training room with a great enthusiasm for and master of the material."
Art Feinman - Commercial Business Analytics, TIC Group Pty Ltd
Hi, I'm Danielle and I’ve been a financial modelling for my whole career. I live and breathe Excel – in fact, I even wrote a book about it! The second edition of "Using Excel for Business Analysis: a Guide to Financial Modelling Fundamentals" was published in April 2015.
Although I’m based in Sydney, I run regular training seminars around Australia and internationally (mostly Asia and the Middle East) for conference organisers or company in-house training. I founded the LinkedIn Financial Modelling in Excel Group which now has around 40,000 members, as well as its global networking Modellers’ Meetup groups.
Wherever you are in the world, I want to help you to learn the fundamentals of financial modelling. I hope to see you either face to face or on my online training soon!
