Sample customer feedback

"Very useful course content and manuals as usual. Can't wait to get started in the 'real world.' Used Wise Owl before, so already converts."

Alison Phiri (NHS Leeds CCG)

"Very well delivered - the trainer is positive and enthusiastic with a well rounded knowledge of Excel. It is clear he enjoys VBA and this is reflected in the delivery of the course. Clear and concise website, good online reviews, I am looking to roll out a lot of VBA within my job. A+"

Jake Orr (MVF Global)

"Excellent trainer - very knowledgeable and welcoming. Useful to have examples to run through and exercises to put into practise. Handy manuals to take away and refer to. Recommended by colleagues who had already attended."

Eliza Hartley (Royal Bank of Scotland)

"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. "

Abdul Khan (Places for People Group)

"Brilliant course, well delivered. This is the 3rd Wise Owl course I have attended and I always leave with ideas on how I can use the course content within the business."

Paul Atterbury (Marley Eternit Ltd.)

There are lots more where these came from (or just refresh this page to change the quotes shown).

Delegates should be comfortable with using Excel (no advanced knowledge is needed). No experience of progamming is needed, although delegates should enjoy the logical challenge of learning new computer systems.
