Jonathan Pearce

Sellafield Ltd.

"The course was brilliant and the trainer was a diamond. I have already written my first macro, it just needs finishing off; opens a couple of files and deletes out data that I normally delete manually. Didn't think I would be able to do that within days of the course. I was planning to start small, but once I got going I found my way around with some trial and error and checking google and the course manual. I am planning on going on the advanced course once I am ready. "

Daryl Cowley

AA Projects Ltd

"I was extremely happy with the course content (Excel 2007 Business Modelling) and learned a lot. I’m very happy with the course materials that I can take away (USB and course manual) and with the flexibility of the trainer. As I was the only person booked on to the course, I received 1:1 training at my speed and the trainer didn’t mind went I went off on a tangent! The facilities at the venue (Manchester) were great – the layout was good and tea, coffee and snacks were all readily available. The course was very well planned with lots of exercises and answers to hand – all of which I can take away and use again. All in all I’m very impressed!"

Nicola Valentine

AA Projects Ltd

"I really enjoyed the course and more importantly learned a lot but the presence of your manual and the USB to ensure I can practice and develop until it is embedded is very useful. The trainer was very friendly, helpful and despite some of my questions, at no point made me feel inadequate despite the other delegate needing very different levels of input. I would highly recommend Wise Owl after this experience."

Househam Henderson

"An excellent course (Excel Business Modelling) delivered at the right pace and which was made much better by the low number of participants."

Stuart Owens

Kingfisher Tmb Limited

"I liked all the exercises, the USB stick that contained all course material and exercise answers - allowing easy referal post-course , meals out, location and the detailed exercises and manuals. The exercises didn't just cover what we'd been taught and so we were able to refer to the manual for the extra information/instructions. I would really recommend this course."
