ModelOff 2014 – Here I Come


Quick question…

What self-described introvert is headed to #Modeloff, gets upgraded to first class, and is ecstatic to find the seat next to him is broken.

Landed in NYC Today for Modeloff

And I’m very anxious to get started.  Jordan and I are holed up in a basement in Brooklyn.  When I got here, I wasn’t sure I was in the right place.  Jordan wasn’t here.

But then I found several copies of Advanced Excel Essentials book strewn about the place.  Like Hansel and Gretel leaving breadcrumbs for the path back home.

So I guess I’m in the right place.

I’ve Had Some Time to Ponder

Or think…  or recalculate…  or whatever it is analyst do.

These Modeloff finalists are coming from all over the globe.  Some of them may take an entire day to get here.  From Kiwis, to Indians, to Russians, to Chinese.  They are from all parts of the globe.  Oh yeah…  Clark Kent is also coming here all the way from the Fortress of Solitude.

So… tomorrow I meet up with Jordan and Oz and the Modeloff organizers Johann, John and Matthew.  We will go over logistics and structure out what the weekend will look like and the best times to capture video content.

Friday Night

Then tomorrow night there is a “Finance and Financial Modeling Innovation Evening presented by ModelOff and NYSSA”(New York Society of Securities Analysts) event — how cool is that?

Anything in particular you would like for us to capture or any burning questions you would like for us to ask?  Leave a comment below.
