In this 30 minute webinar, Gary Simon, CEO, FSN and Leader of the Modern Finance Forum interviews Henry Umney, the strategist and spreadsheet visionary behind ClusterSeven, with more than a decade of experience in the specialist field of managing spreadsheets in a wide range of industries. We are going to discuss how to reduce the impact of the spreadsheet-spiral, how to reduce spreadsheet clutter and offer tips on how to manage what’s left, including mission critical spreadsheets.
