Seminar Co-ordinator Comment

"St. Louis IMA was looking for the perfect guest speaker/trainer who would fill our seats and make a lasting impression on our members. Bill Jelen was our man! 97% of those in attendance ranked Mr. Excel "Excellent" in all categories. Not only is Bill extremely knowledgeable, he has a special talent for making people laugh! His four hour seminars feel like 30 minutes. Bill has conducted three seminars for our group and we look forward to inviting him back. I HIGHLY recommend Bill Jelen for both "Power Tips & Tricks" as well as "Advanced Excel."

Testimonials for MrExcel from past IMA events

I love excel and have attended many seminars on the topic. I usually walk away with 2-3 good tips. This seminar was filled with useful tricks. One of the best ever.

Fort Myers, October 2015

Mr. Jelen had the most entertaining, educational seminar I've ever attended. Usually, seminars tend to make folks nod off. This seminar, with its smaller class size and the dynamic Bill Jelen kept folks fully engaged. What a great value, too...CPEs, lunch and a great book(s)! Thank you, Mr. Jelen and IMA!
