Why Choose Us?

Sample customer feedback

Our thanks to everyone who agreed to share their thoughts (note that some of these reviews may be for our online courses).

"I found everything relevant and useful. Some bits I already knew but it was good to get a refresher. Our trainer was extremely patient and had a way of explaining things that made sense to all on the course. I was always fearful of having to use excel but this course has made it much less scary. Thanks again."

Maxwell Brown (Greater Manchester Combined Authority (GMCA))

"I found the course very informative, really useful and overall excellent. I was looking for a course that covered the areas that I need to create charts etc and this was the best one for my ability at the moment. Once I get more confident using PBI I will be looking at the other courses."

Shirley Grayson (Salvation Army Housing Association)

"Really appreciate the accompanying manual for future reference."

Callum Walker (Cheshire East Council)

"Really engaging session with a brilliant trainer who helped throughout."

Kate Lawler (Greater Manchester Combined Authority (GMCA))
