Book Launch: Financial Modeling in Excel for Dummies

Take a quick glance at many of the accounting and finance roles and you’ll see that financial modelling is now one of the most sought-after skills on the job market.  Sydney-based financial modelling specialist, Danielle Stein Fairhurst has written Financial Modeling in Excel For Dummies to try and dispel some of the mystique around financial modelling and show how building and using financial models is just part of many professionals’ every roles.  “Financial Modelling is often seen as a mysterious or complicated process that only very few people can master, but it’s simply not the case,” she says,“Many of the principles of best practice for Excel modelling are just common sense, not rocket science.”

“Many books only teach you how to use Excel when everything goes right but drawing on her decades of modeling experience, Danielle has included a tonne of battle-tested techniques for validating, testing and auditing inherited financial modeling projects that don’t necessarily always go to plan.” George J Mount, Excel blogger.

Financial Modeling in Excel For Dummies is available from 8th May, and the official book launch party will be held at Dymocks in George st, Sydney on 25th May.
