About SumProduct

Formed in late 2009, SumProduct is a boutique modelling firm that specialises in Excel, VBA, financial modelling, and all things Power BI. We target finance professionals, given that’s who we are too. We know the problems you face.

For all who work in finance, we have many free tips and tricks available throughout our website; the Excel tip of the day (available on the home page), and in our Blog and Thought articles. These include many files which are downloadable for free. As well as this array of free content, we also offer paid for content through our face-to-face training (through our Courses page), and online training modules (on our Subscriptions page). Courses include PivotTables, Excel Tips and Tricks, Financial Modelling, Power Pivot, Power Query and Power BI.

With four offices (London, Melbourne, New York and Sydney), the team is highly experienced in consulting, model development, model auditing and training. And there are two Excel Most Valuable Professionals (MVPs, as accredited by Microsoft) in the team - Liam Bastick and Tim Heng. There are only 64 MVPs bestowed with this title around the world. We also have another MVP-elect, Kathryn Newitt, who specialises in Power Query and Power BI. Our wealth of experience is reflected in our resources.
