Roger John Govier

( Roger Govier )

United Kingdom
Cardiff, South Glamorgan


An independent IT consultant based in the UK, specialising in assisting all businesses with their Business Information requirements, making extensive use of Excel and Visual Basic.

Following my degree in Agricultural Economics and Business Management, I spent a number of years working for both small and large public businesses, as well as running my own business.
I became interested in programming in 1978 and from 1983 to 1997 was Commercial Director of a small software company in the UK..

Returned home to my native Wales in 1997, and I operate my consultancy business from our small family farm on the banks of the River Usk. We recently left the farm and now live in Cardiff, the capital city of Wales. My client base has expanded over recent years, and as well as UK clients, I also carry out work for clients in USA, Canada, Brazil, Portugal, Switzerland and Australia.

The use of Pivot Tables and Power Pivot has become an increasing need in providing BI solutions as well as Power Query, which is the new "hidden gem" within Excel along with the latest Dynamic Array functions and Lambda's

In addition to software and solution development, training large or small groups in the use of Excel forms part of my day to day operations.
