About this Talk

In one corner, we have the sceptics who believe that Excel is becoming obsolete in today's data-driven world. They argue that relying on legacy technology and data silos is hindering businesses from obtaining critical insights. Instead, they propose using sophisticated Power BI tools and modern data-driven organisational practices. But does this mean Excel is truly dead?

In the other corner, we have the supporters who argue that Excel still holds a pervasive position in the business world, especially among finance professionals. They wonder if Excel can adapt to the modern times and what's next for this long-standing tool. Is it time for an upgrade or can the old dog still learn new tricks?
