A Note from the Author - I hope you enjoy "Using Excel for Business Analysis; a Guide to Financial Modelling Fundamentals". This book was written from my course materials compiled over many years of training in analytical courses in Australia and globally - most frequently courses such as Financial Modelling in Excel, Data Analysis & Reporting in Excel and Budgeting & Forecasting in Excel, both as face-to-face workshops and online courses. The common theme is the use of Microsoft Excel and I've developed the content to suit the hundreds of participants and their questions over the years. This content has been honed and refined by the many participants on these courses, who are my intended readers. This book is aimed at you, the many people who seek financial analysis training (either by attending a seminar or self-paced by reading this book) because you are seeking to improve your skills to perform better in your current role, or get a new and better job.
