    Question I'm not an expert or no expert

    Greetings everybody,

    I'm not an expert in the subject but we might share some reflections on the thought (of organizing a conference on the subject).

    Which one is better? (I'm not an expert) or (I'm no expert)? What's the difference between them?

    Thank you in advance.

    There is no real difference.

    Possibly 'no' is slightly more formal than 'not a(n)'
