YouTube Silver Award - 100K + subscribers!

At Wise Owl we don't often hoot our own horn but this time it is something rather special. We would like to share our achievement with all of you who made it happen:

Silver creator award

We received the Silver Creator Award from YouTube for our free training videos channel!

On the channel are currently 301 videos, covering topics from VBA macros to  Power BI reports, which have collectively received a total of 18, 862, 618 views!

YouTube Silver Award 100k members

We actually hit 100k on the 16th of March 2018, but today the plaque arrived!

This incredible achievement is mainly due to the hard work by two of the Wise Owls: Andrew and Andy.

YouTube 100k subscribers

This milestone will certainly be making them feel as big headed as their drawings!

Editor's note - the vast majority of the videos were created by left-hand Andrew above, who also initiated and managed the project - but thanks Sam.

At the time of hitting 100k subscribers the total watch time was an incredible 96 million minutes watched. Andrew's favourite statistic though was from North Korea:

One lone person watched just 42 seconds of "VBA - Creating word documents" before disconnecting. Sorry Andrew, but Kim Jong-un didn't like your accent!

Now for what you are all actually here for, the un-boxing video ...
