Eleanor Durrant

Consultant Business Analyst — Business Intelligence Specialist

Bright people have better ideas when they explain them to me. If you want to make some documented sense of your strategy, project or business, or you've got a spreadsheet that needs to talk, drop me a line.

For example, I'll spend some time with a programme manager or business owner and a lot of sticky notes to get the strategy, the plan, and the thinking behind it all out of their head and into a form they can use to make better decisions, and other people can read and evaluate.

I work most of my time for a boutique management consultancy that specialises in solving difficult problems in the finance function. I do business intelligence, Excel automation for interim solutions, data quality, data architecture, and other analysis and documentation work. For the smaller company or non-profit who are not likely to have the budget for that sort of thing, I am very happy to help as an individual and refer you if necessary.

I'm working a lot with "Modern Excel", which means Microsoft Power Pivot, DAX, Power Query, the M query language, and data visualisation with Microsoft Power BI. I also help spreadsheets and databases that really need to talk.

I am fully insured for professional indemnity and public liability.
