    Microsoft MVP
    Data Platform (2017)
    Excel (2006-2016)

    One of the biggest honours I've received is to be awarded the Microsoft MVP award for Excel

    The following quote best explains the MVP award:

    MVPs are credible, technology experts from around the world who inspire others to learn and grow through active technical community participation. While MVPs come from many backgrounds and a wide range of technical communities, they share a passion for technology and a demonstrated willingness to help others. MVPs do this through the books and articles they author; the Web sites they manage; the blogs they maintain; the user groups they participate in; the chats they host or contribute to; the events and training sessions where they present, as well as through the questions they answer in technical newsgroups or message boards.

    Microsoft MVPs are simply an amazing group of individuals. We are excited to recognize and award MVPs as our way of saying "thank you" for their demonstrated commitment to helping others in technical communities around the globe.
    The Microsoft MVP distinction is awarded annually, and must be re-earned every year. I was first awarded on October 1st, 2006, and an proud to say that I have be re-awarded every year since then.

    This award also spawned a Kudos section on June 25, 2007.

    Cell Master
    I have also been flattered to receive the 30th Cell Master award at Colo's Excel site. For those not in the know, Colo is a very gifted Excel MVP from Japan, and this was a very select list of extremely talented individuals. (Honestly, I'm not quite sure I deserved to be on there!) Unfortunately Colo's site is no longer running, so the interview that Colo and I did can no longer be accessed. (Even the Internet Archive Wayback Machine can't get at it any more due to a config issue in the robots.txt file of the site.)
