  • I came out of the course with something new and fresh

  • The trainer was a very good course leader.  He went step by step and helped us when we needed it along the way

  • Fantastic course - very well delivered, excellent, knowledgeable speaker and just the right level and speed.  Was very impressed.

  • Really good presenter, flexible and added much extra knowledge when asked questions.

  • Excellent trainer with knowledge of databases and SQL to relate to how Excel handles similar functions.

  • Learnt how to automate spreadsheets and the facilitator explained with unparalleled clarity

  • I have definitely learnt a lot from this course.  There wasnt anything that wasnt beneficial

  • Tailored course to specific work related projects to decide how best to approach them

  • The most beneficial aspect of the event was being shown efficiency methods to automate processes not necessarily using a macro

  • The Powerpivots and Macros we learnt could save a lot of time in the organisation, allowing us to spend less time doing spreadsheets and more time out in the business units where we can become more embedded with them

We got through a huge amount of content in one session, which was fantastic - Stephanie was clearly very conscious of the differing experience levels of everyone in the group and was very careful to pitch it at a level that catered for all attendees. She not only provided detailed explanations on how to get the best from Excel, but also some brilliant time saving shortcuts and workarounds that I never knew about and will definitely use in future! Brilliant day.

Testimonials received from the recent Excel Beyond the Basics course for the NHS in Derby
  • There were some simple things that I just didn't know about which I will use daily -
    for instance the array of options for inclusion on the quick access bar. I plan to use
    Macros to automate some of my reports. Nesting IFs - brilliant!

  • Learnt new skills but also quicker ways of completing things I
    already knew, very useful exercise book to take away too.

  • The most beneficial aspect of the event was learning simpler ways to be able to
    complete tasks, through the use of better methods of working.

  • What a great day! Steph delivered the course in a logical, easy to follow,
    unpressured way. I came away with lots of skills to practice and put into use in my
    day to day work. I have already requested a place on the next course to further
    improve my skills and confidence. An additional excellent point to note: Steph
    asked at the beginning what each of us wanted to get out of the course and she
    referred back to these requirements during the course of the day to make sure she
    was addressing them.

  • The tutor was really good and understanding that people were at different stages
    of excel but made it interesting for us all.

Testimonials received from the recentExcel PowerPivots course for the NHS in Crawley
  • The event gave a good introduction about the main aspects and requirements of the software. It has given me the confidence to go away and develop my own skills in using the program.

  • I learned how to upload data from different sources and also learned how to create tables and understand the connections between data tables which are extracted from different sources. Learning how to create a measure and KPI was very beneficial.

  • I found the entire session very useful, tailored well to our work and the way we work. The explaining slides at the beginning were great as an introduction rather than just jumping straight into the software. It was well structured and I felt welcomed to ask questions or make the scenarios more relatable.

  • Learning to work with DAX was very useful

  • I did think that the course was worthwhile and was a good topic - it is a component of Excel but not something that many of us use or are even aware of.

Testimonials received from the recent Excel Above and Beyond course for the NHS in Maidstone
  • I found the structure of the learning great for me. Rather than ploughing through a book and examples and then a fast finish cramming stuff in. This was well paced and included all the learnt items in one final scenario. Nobody was left behind. I feel this will be more memorable information and a benefit to me and will look for Alan as a future tutor

  • I am completing the HFMA post grad diploma in Healthcare Finance Management and have found the content really informative as to funding flows and structure of the NHS as a whole. This has bee enlightening to me and I think others would also benefit in a day of explanation if possible.

  • Excellent course, excellent trainer with outstanding knowledge.

  • The event was about power pivot and was good to see how we can link monthly/quarterly activity with news or events happened at the same period.

SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS) Part 1/2 - Crawley

It gave me the basic introduction to SSRS that I needed in order to get going with the report builder tool. Hopefully the second installment will build on this and start
using server functionality and use the visual studio tools rather than the report builder tool.
