2014 MVP Summit

In the first week of November I was privileged to attend the MVP Summit at Microsoft in Redmond. I think it was the best Summit I have been to, with much more open interchange with the Excel team about things that might or might not make it into Excel one day.

Anyway I can’t tell you anything more about that, but I can say that all the Excel MVPs are a really nice bunch of people, who like to sit around in Rock Bottom, drink beer and talk Excel geek stuff (which I also like to do to!). Here are some photos of my fellow MVP geeks (you will have met many of these on various Excel forums):

    Thanks for posting the photos Charles. It’s been a few years since I’ve been to the summit so it’s nice to see my old friends in pictures if not in person.
