About Gašper Kamenšek

Gašper Kamenšek lives in Ljubljana, Slovenia where I head my consulting firm called Excel Olympics. That being said, Gašper gives sessions at many international conferences in Europe and all around the World. He’s a Microsoft MVP for Excel and MCSA for BI Reporting. Gašper is a lead author @ Excel Unplugged, where he tries to share my knowledge and enthusiasm about Excel with as many people as he can. When I’m not lecturing Excel, I’m thrown into various BI projects consisting either of Power Query and PowerPivot, VBA for Excel and more and more Power BI, which seem to be endless in it’s variations of applicability. The thing we find most fascinating about Excel is that although we use it every day, it still finds ways to surprise and amaze us. This blog is a testament to that amazement 🙂

Microsoft MVP award

With the 10/1/2016 Gašper Kamenšek became the first and only Microsoft MVP for Excel in Slovenia and would like to thank Microsoft publicly for acknowledgement of my work and this blog.

About Excel Unplugged

Gašper Kamenšek started Excel Unplugged with one reason only. To help people through the maze of Excel commands and functions and make them better at their every day tasks in Excel. It was going to start of as a depository for keyboard and mouse Shortcuts, various Tools in Excel with some useful functions and a little bit of VBA. That plan seriously sidetracked with the release of Power Pivot. It sidetracked even more with the release of Power Query. Then along came Power BI. I know Power BI is i’s own product and technology but I never saw it as anything else but an Excel extension. All this new technologies and tools became the topic of my writing. That being said the original idea of Excel Unplugged has transformed a bit since the early beginnings.

At this point it covers a very broad array of topics varying from Excel to Power BI. Lately I’ve been fiddling around with Power Apps, Microsoft Forms and Microsoft Flow. These are all powerful tools in the Office 365 suite and combined with Excel can make our work much much easier. I do believe all these will shape the future of the way we work.

Speaking at Conferences

I must admit that I (Gašper Kamenšek) would never survive in a repetitive nine to five job style. I think public speaking is my blood and I need to do it. It is for this reason that I travel the World speaking at various conferences and events. I love doing that! And it’s staggering to me, how I keep having the same conversations anywhere I go. How people love Excel everywhere I go and have the same kinds of issues everywhere I go. That’s why I love to spread the Excel love everywhere I can. My goal is to speak at conferences on all continents and I’m working towards it year by year… If you would want me to speak at your local conference just reach out to me. I will most certainly do everything I can to be there!
