How did you hear about the ModelOff competition? What made you want to get involved?

2 years ago from my Colleague. It sounds fun to me so I took part. This is my third attempt.

Tell us a bit about your experiences in Round 1 and 2. Did you think you would make it to the World Finals?

Normally I do well in round 1 but were stuck in early questions of round 2 twice due to unfamiliarity. This year luckily I was not stuck in any round 2 questions. I thought I could stand a chance of heading to final as long as I understand the questions well enough.

What’s the best piece of advice you’ve ever received at work?

Don’t overlook formatting and presentation. Best skill is not to model the most accurate answers, but to get the message across succinctly as quickly as possible, even to your granny.

What is/are your greatest achievement(s) – either personally or professionally?

Personally – trained as a scientist, think as a scientist, although not working as one at the moment.
Professionally – nothing worth mentioning yet.

Favorite Excel Shortcut(s):

What do you hope comes out of being a ModelOff Finalist?

I am happy enough to join the Final and will accept any outcomes. Would love to make some friends in the forum.
