ModelOff 2015 will be expanding significantly. The ModelOff mission has always been to create the international platform to celebrate education and excellence in financial analysis and modeling. We hope the introduction of a new international conference, great networking events, careers & talent listings and more technical education content will help you seize the day. Here’s a few highlights:
1. ModelOff Finals Moves to London
The annual Finals of ModelOff is headed to London, United Kingdom in 2015. London will benefit from the opportunity to showcase the best and brightest financial analysts and modelers in the world. New York has been awesome for many years and now ModelOff London promises to be equally spectacular, polished and prestigious. Here is the original blog post with the announcement.
2. Attend the 2-Day “ModelOff Summit” in London
The inaugural ModelOff Summit is a two-day industry conference for anyone who is serious about Microsoft Excel, Financial Analysis, Financial Modeling, Investment and Risk Intelligence. This event brings together industry professionals, C-Level thought-leaders and leading researchers all in one place to discuss, network and learn from the best and brightest worldwide. Explore the newest financial analysis innovations and hottest analytical trends in visualisation, mobile, collaboration security and social that you won’t find anywhere else. We will host technical education workshops, classes and training with tips, technologies and tools to build exceptional skills in financial, investment and risk analysis. Participants earn up to 15 CPD/CPE points when attending both days in London towards continuous technical education for professionals with continuous learning requirements as part of the Chartered Accounting, Chartered Financial Analyst, Actuarial, Investment Banking, Risk and Investment Management qualifications. The conference will conclude with the LIVE Finals of the 2015 ModelOff World Championships which is broadcast online. A must-attend event open to anyone that loves analysis.
2. “THE TECHNICIANS” – A New Series of Articles from Industry Leaders
ModelOff will soon launch an ongoing series of articles titled “The Technicians”. This series will feature technical tips, Advanced Excel, thought-leadership and best-practice tips from some of the best minds in Microsoft Excel, VBA, Financial Modeling and Financial Analysis. If you are an elite financial modeller and Excel-lover, interested in having your work featured on THE TECHNICIANS in areas from industries Actuarial, Investment Banking, Infrastructure, Investment Management and more, please contact us at email@example.com.
4. Join Global Networking Meetups
We will expand to twelve networking meetup events in major cities – including London, New York, Hong Kong, Sydney, Sao Paolo, Toronto, Mumbai, Melbourne, Singapore, Moscow, Dublin and Johannesburg and more. Each is a unique opportunity to meet local leaders, build business networks and seek advice from some past and future ModelOff Champions. We’ll target 50-300 attendees at each, depending on the city. Find out more here and if you’d like to organize a local ModelOff meetup, email firstname.lastname@example.org for a confidential discussion.
5. “Careers and Talent”
Companies always approach the ModelOff organizers to hire talented professionals and students that perform well at ModelOff. Recruitment is pretty boring to us, although we do seek to facilitate “Talent Acquisition” for the global ModelOff Community. In 2015, we’ll be releasing a new “Careers & Talent” section of our website to support companies with ongoing “evergreen” needs for top financial analysis and modeling professionals in their workplaces (especially for the Top 20% of ModelOff performers). We’ll additionally launch a new “2016 Global ModelOff University Careers Guide” for University Graduates Jobs and Internships.
6. “Create Your Competition” – PSCL Provides Competitions & Hackathons
The ModelOff Championship is organized and governed as part of the Professional Services Champions League, along with several other leading world championship events for professionals and students. Due to strong interest, PSCL has recently launched a “Private Competition and Hackathon” service for major companies looking at product marketing, talent acquisition and ideas generation.
Essentially any major company can now run a “Private-ModelOff” in their city or region to assess or celebrate hundreds or thousands of people with the high standards of organizational management as the PSCL World Championship League. The PSCL team continues to writes the full set of advanced technical questions, testing and case studies for clients to ensure Question Excellence. You can find out more at www.psclglobal.com.
