2015 Amsterdam Excel Summit

How it all Started

For the 2013 MVP Summit, many of the European Excel MVPs did not travel to Redmond. So, several of the decided to get together in Amsterdam, the home of Ron de Bruin http://www.rondebruin.nl/  In truth, it was in Amsterdam as a ploy to get Ron de Bruin to an Excel Meeting 🙂

Enter Tony DeJonker who suggested that the 20 or so Excel MVPs that will be at the meeting should deliver content to the public.  This was in 2014… and the Summit was born.
