About myself

My name is Bernd Held. I was born on 02.04.1969. I’am  married and the father of two children. During my studies and some time after that, I was an active sportsman.  Won the German championchip over 400 m hurdles twice and participated in European and World Championships.

My way to Excel: After having spent two years at a small software development company, I worked in controlling at T-Systems for eight years. There I was responsible for the reporting,  the preparation of business-plans and cost-effectiveness calculations as well as for the creation of new controlling tools based on Microsoft Office. In January 2002,  followed the step into self-employment. Since then, I’ve been concentrating on VBA programming, business consulting and writing computer books. Some of my books have also been translated into Russian, Czech and English.

Other fields of work include the technical revision of computer books and the implementation of VBA trainings.

For a period of 8 years, I was an MVP for Microsoft Excel.

Best regards
