Carl Nixon AKA The Excel ExpertAbout Carl Nixon The Excel Consultant

Hi, my name is Carl Nixon, I’m an Excel Consultant, and the author of the top selling Kindle book “Learn How to Use Pivot Tables in an Hour”.

In my 20 years as an Excel Consultant I have helped businesses from around the world get the most of Excel. Often saving them large amounts of time and money in the process.

Away from spreadsheets I'm a keen supporter of children's charities, a gamer, a tech-head and the grandparent to 5 boys.

Why I Became an Excel Consultant?

Excel-Expert.com was born out of the desire to help others make better use of Excel. The original plan for this site was to be a free source of information and a community for Excel users, that I could run in my spare time.

However it soon become clear that visitors wanted more 1-2-1 help than a simple community site could offer. And I certainly didn't have enough time in a day to offer 1-2-1 support.

I tried to find consultants to put my visitors in touch with but there weren't any. So I took the leap and became a freelance Excel consultant - I haven't looked back since.

The Non-Excel Part

I have 5 wonderful grandkids that eat up most of my spare time – If you call us you will often hear my eldest grandson in the background learning to code.

What remaining spare time I have is dedicated to raising money for children’s charities and campaigning for children’s rights around the world. As a result of this I have had several adventures. I was a part of the first aid convoy in to Kosovo after the NATO intervention and was banned from the Bulgaria for several years after campaigning against the way they treated mentally ill children (Search for the Forgotten Children of “Bulgaria on YouTube” for more information).

My fundraising work has included organizing the Welsh premieres of Casino Royale and the Harry Potter movies. I have also organised special screenings of The Rocky Horror Picture show and all night screenings of the Alien and Back to The Future films. Other fund raisers have included fashion shows and “ladies nights”.
