Episode 8 - Brian Jones - Microsoft Excel - Part 1

The Forward Thinking CFO

Today’s guest is the first non-CFO to feature on the podcast, but it’s fair to say he has a profound impact on almost every Finance professional’s working life. We had the pleasure of sitting down with Microsoft’s Head of Product for Excel, Brian Jones and we had so much to talk about that we’ve decided to split this episode into a two-part special for you. Having started his career at Microsoft more than 20 years ago, Brian now leads all Excel development and is responsible for keeping Excel at the cutting edge of what’s possible. In today’s part one, we talk everything Excel, including:- How Microsoft’s commitment to nurturing creativity and collaboration are key to the success of Excel and the entire Office suite. - How customers are constantly pushing Excel’s boundaries to create their own ingenious solutions and applications. - And the increasing value of artificial intelligence in helping users get the most from Excel. It was fascinating to hear about Brian’s journey at Microsoft and get a behind-the-scenes peek into Excel’s development. This episode will give you a much deeper understanding of Excel’s growing capabilities and what it takes to keep a product like this at the top of its game for so many years.This is just part one, and if you enjoy this, you’ll definitely want to make a note to come back for part two next week.
