"Highly recommend. Really enjoyed, thank you! (SSIS) Very patient with us, not having been on the introduction course.(Adv Power BI) Feedback from colleagues was very positive."

Nichola Kelly (Manchester Metropolitan University)

"(Intro Power BI course) Excellent pace for 2 days. Plenty of interaction and humour. Great lunch breaks. (DAX course) Excellent course. Very well delivered on a "tricky" topic which could have sent me slightly mad. Great pace of delivery. This is the first time I felt I could do the same course again! (Advanced Power BI course) Excellent delivery of a new course. Quick measures were very useful after the DAX course (a good compliment)."
