Paula Guilfoyle


My Name is Paula, and I am a qualified CPA with over 15 years’ experience in Accounting and Business. I have worked across a broad range of industries and levels of seniority. During this time I used Excel as my spreadsheet tool of choice, attending many courses and regularly updating my skills. It was my love for Excel that started my journey as an e-learning educator. As a manager and an Accountant, I noticed a skills gap amount Accountants and finance staff in Excel. In 2010 I launched with 1 course aimed at this market. I am now author and presenter of many online courses and can boast that I have thought over 10,000 students!

In addition to being an Accountant and an Online Educators I am also a wife and a mother of two, my youngest is 2 and eldest is 7. I currently work as an Accountant for a global company, which makes family life very very busy. I am always stuck for time, and finding a balance is very difficult. I’m sure all working parents understand the pressures involved.
