    Re: Anyone here a Microsoft MVP?

    Thanks to all for the suggestions. Really, I am just thinking it would look good on my résumé (CV), and might open other doors for some part-time consulting work as I consider going into semi-retirement.

    Re: Anyone here a Microsoft MVP?

    Rory, please tell me likes of yourself, Colin & Richard are still MVPs?!

    It seemed to me, a few years back, that more and more emphasis was being placed on an individuals' own web presence (own sites, channels etc), or put another way - demonstrating the techniques of "others" to a mass audience was of significant importance to MS, and whilst that rationale is perfectly understandable from MS' perspective it meant that for me, at least, the Award didn't mean quite the same thing as say a decade ago.

    edit: never had it but would confess to at one point aspiring to it... in interests of self employment ;-)

    In which I would stand my earlier point that, for me at any rate, the MVP doesn't quite translate as it used to.

    others I referenced above are Richard Schollar and Colin Legg... the fact that they, along with Andy Pope, are no longer MVPs is "surprising"...

    Well, I can't speak for the others, but I had a surprisingly good run.

    I am surprised no one has mentioned Jindon. Given his contributions to the community for years, he must be either a MVP or ex-MVP.

    Re: Anyone here a Microsoft MVP?

    I'm still around here, even if only sporadically.

    And I'm still an MVP.

    There have been a lot of changes to the MVP programme recently. Information about the MVP programme can be found at the official Microsoft site at https://mvp.microsoft.com

    The different expertise areas like Excel, PowerPoint, Word, etc. have recently been pooled into "Office Apps & Services", which also includes SharePoint and the whole Office 365 bundle.

    It's now extremely difficult to find Excel MVPs on that site, because you can't select Excel as a filter anymore and searching for the word "excel" returns too much noise.

    It illustrates MS is still 'improving' things.
