Make working late a thing of the past

Online Excel training for professionals who want to save time with Excel.


Are you spending too long at work?

(...and missing out on life!)


Does this sound like you?

  • You spend too much time copying and pasting data between workbooks, and then spending more time performing the same time-consuming actions to turn that data into something useful?
  • You work through your lunch break and take work home so you can catch up during the evening and weekends?
  • You're bored at work because you’re doing the same repetitive reporting tasks every day, week, or month?
  • Whenever you complete one task, there is always another forecast, period-end, or deadline to move straight onto.
  • You never quite catch up and feel like you’re constantly running just to stand still?
  • You would love to automate your tasks, but you feel overwhelmed by the number of features, and not sure where to start?
  • You feel like you're destined to keep working late and missing out on what is important to you?

Others might choose to do this, but you can choose a different way!

Imagine a world where you could complete your Excel work quickly with no stress; saving time and getting to spend more doing thing things you love.

Actually, you don’t need to imagine, this world already exists. You just don’t know how to do it yet.

Excel is the most powerful, most flexible, and most used software on the planet. Used correctly, it can automate your tasks. But often, it gets too complex.

Our academy is different, it is based around a key question:

“What would Excel automation look like if it were easy?”

In solving this question, we created a repeatable process for automation. No matter your start point, no matter your endpoint, the steps are the same.

Once you know the steps, you can apply them over and over again in different areas of your work. Achieving greater and greater time saving each time.

This is what we teach in our Excel Academy.

Built by somebody who has been there

About 10 years ago, I set out on a mission…

“Something’s got to change…” they were the words spinning around my mind as I sat in my car. I had just arrived home from work, it was 11pm.

It had become a common routine. Sometimes it was 9:30pm, sometimes it was 11:30pm. The exact time was largely irrelevant. What mattered was that I had missed seeing my children…again.

The people at the company I had only recently started working for were amazing; but the hours were killing me.

I had a young family, and wanted to be around and see them grow up. But because of this job, I never saw my children, I hardly saw my wife, and most days I didn’t even see daylight.

No matter how fast I worked, it made no difference. There was a solution, I decided that if I could learn how to automate my tasks, I could make it work.

Through this journey, I discovered something surprisingly simple, yet unbelievably powerful.

Here is the secret… all reporting and analysis can be achieved with a 7-stage blueprint. If we can identify the Excel tools for each section of that blueprint, and ensure they pass information from one stage to the next, then we can automate all sections of our work.

Automating Excel is a bit like the 4 x 100m relay at the Olympics. It's not just about running fast, it’s also about passing the baton. If a team drops the baton, they’re disqualified.

The individual features in Excel are like the runners. They each do their job to get further along the track. But automation is our ability to pass information (i.e. the baton) from one tool to the next. If the information gets dropped at any point, we must step in and handle it manually.

Over the last 10 years, I’ve discovered the best ways to combine these tools, so that we can automate Excel.

Each year, through Excel Off The Grid, I help millions of people through the blog, YouTube channel, books, and courses. Because of this commitment to helping others, I was recognized as a Microsoft MVP in 2021.

I now teach others how to use Excel to pass information along every stage of the journey; creating automations that are repeatable and save huge amounts of time every month.

What do people say about our content and training?


"Mark, you're an absolute legend! 🏆

You've just guided me through the final steps I needed in order to finish building a tool I've been working on most of the day.

The tool is to be used to work through over 100 separate cases, with more likely to come, which each take 15 minutes to complete, at best.

This has changed my individual case time down to a little under two minutes. That's a massive saving of over 22 hours on just this current batch!!! 😲"


"Mark, you are one of the best mentors I have ever had the privilege of learning from. Your down to earth and easy explained examples are tremendous. You stand apart by your endless willingness to help where you can. Thank you sir. I will forever be in your debt and will endeavour to share what knowledge I have as you have demonstrated so skillfully.
