The computer wizard who teaches not for a living

Edmundo “Ed” Cabading, Filipino volunteer trainer in Dubai


This Filipino achiever is a certified Microsoft Office User Specialist (MOUS) in MS Excel. 

As a certified MS Excel trainer, he is knowledgeable of Core, Expert, Superior, Master and VBA. Edmundo A. Cabading is just happy to share with what he has learned.

He loves the tricks and challenges that a five-day work can be done in minutes. Far from his work in the Philippines, he said “expat like me don’t choose work or what we do… we opt for a higher salary.”

Those who have learned from him have many good things to say about his character. Filipino couple Jerome and Lilibeth Eslabon stressed that Ed’s relentless efforts of patiently and diligently teaching them the capabilities of Excel “had brought our consciousness of this powerful tool to the next level.”

Rachell Hernandez, Project Manager of Axiom Telecom (Givori Department), was happy to note that she now teaches Basic Excel (Excel Core) at no cost to her subordinates.

Marvin A. Abregana, Product Support Marketing Analyst at the  General Office of the Mohamed Abdulrahman Al-Bahar and a Caterpillar Exclusive Dealer (UAE, Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar), is all praises of Ed.

Learning the program under Ed was a wonderful and fruitful experience, according to Regina Dolor of PICPA.

Meanwhile, Nesh Prieto of BPOME, said: “When I thought I was already good in excel, I still have so many dull moments. Techniques would really make an accountant’s life easier.”

Countless people have been moved by the generosity. Ed who was born in 1964 in Manila is indeed successful if the measure of success is the love and affection showered by his fellow expats in the United Arab Emirates.
