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).

"Very professional starting from the pre-course communication and pre-course materials received, to the course itself. The trainer was brilliant, nothing was too drawn out or overexplained but just enough to ensure it was understood, very methodical and professional. Thank you very much, I really enjoyed it and wouldn't hesitate to book on the next level course."

Trish Smee (Greater Manchester Combined Authority (GMCA))

"Good content delivered in an easy-to-understand manner, without over-complicating. Been on previous courses & good experience, so natural progression."

Daniel Gates (ICE Futures Europe)

"Very well paced, excellent delivery. Got a good sense of the scope and potential of Power BI as a reporting and communication tool."

Rashid Jussa (Waltham Forest Council)

"Trainer was great at delivering a complex course."

Sradha Shah (Hertfordshire Constabulary)

"Trainer was very approachable and willing to break the 'syllabus' flow to answer questions and still maintained completing the course work in the time allotted, without having to rush any portion. The workbook and exercises are laid out well and I will be revisiting them as a refresh."
