"I was pleasantly surprised with the virtual training as I have always preferred classroom teaching and also very happy with the course. It was very hands on, which I appreciated more that just being talked to. I was impressed with my instructor too. He was very engaging. I liked the course content."

Folakemi Ayoade

Bank of England

"A great trainer, his knowledge was amazing and he was really keen to help and make it relevant to us which was great! We were undecided between this and the three day intensive course but really happy we started on this course and can go away and do our own work on macros before moving on to the advance course!"

"A wonderful trainer. I would highly recommend this course to others. I had previously done an Intermediate and Advanced Excel course and I wanted to expand my knowledge by learning about business modelling in Excel."

Aji Njie

"Just like to say a big thanks to our trainer for delivering a good course. He kept things interesting during the two days and got through a lot of content."

Kevin McWhirter

The Phoenix Group

"The trainer was absolutely amazing! Clear, easy content to follow and understand. My line manager said she enjoyed her SQL course with Wise Owl and after attending, I can see why."

"I was a bit wary at first of doing this course online, but it was fantastic. Very well planned before the course date, a Wise Owl team member called via teams to make sure we were set up for online training, the excellent training material arrived in plenty of time (just like to add the best training material I've seen for Dax), on the day it was easy to connect to remote desktops for the practical work, and the trainer was able to see all of our screens and see what we were doing and could advise accordingly. We had a fantastic trainer and thoroughly enjoyed the 2 day Dax course, he is very funny and extremely knowledgeable and was able to explain some of the complexities of Dax in a very simple way. Online training also had the benefit of us having time to discuss our working power BI issues. Greatly recommend this course for anyone wanting to learn more about DAX. I was struggling a bit with DAX and had so far learnt what I knew from Google, so it was time to find a Dax course. My manager found this one and we both attended online together, and so glad we chose Wise Owl (as we went to another firm for our Power BI beginners course) and it was no way near the standard of Wise Owl."

"Our trainer modified the content slightly to cover VBA in pivot tables which was very applicable for us. He also provided great assistance straight after the course in helping me apply the techniques learnt to actual work problems. He exceeded my expectations and I am very grateful to him."

Greg Stevens

ICE Futures Europe

"I would like to thank the trainer for the way he ran the course and how he presented it, making plenty of time to ask questions and re-explain things if needed. Very good indeed doing the course online."

Craig Wyatt

"Our trainer was great! Kept the course entertaining while explaining everything as many times as needed!"

"Really loved the course and we learnt so much!! Very easy to follow."

"Excellent, crystal clear and logical. Really like the course manual."

Natalia Ortynskaya

Montagu Private Equity LLP

"The course content was interesting and covered all the key areas I was interested in learning about when signing up for the course. The course moved at a good pace and was well balanced between instructor-lead content and practical examples. The trainer even followed up after the course with further information on some technical questions, allowing me to comfortably and easily start using Python and VS Code. Was a good balance between course length (3 days) and coverage (basic to intermediary topics). I also prefer the fact that it's live and instructor-lead, rather than being a purely audio visual experience (i.e. not a YouTube video). Wise Owl also has a good track record with our company and other delegates on other course and clearly have expertise in the areas their courses cover."

Michael Thurlow

"We had a great trainer and extremely knowledgeable. He kept up a great energy throughout the 2 days and tailored the course to what we were most interested in."

Stefan Store

Moneybarn Limited

"Great course. Very knowledgeable trainer."

Harry Handley

Sainsburys Bank

"We had a very enthusiastic and knowledgeable trainer, he went into a good amount of detail and tailored the content to fit our group well."

Rosalind Futcher

Moneybarn Limited

"Great energy from our trainer and went out of his way to show us other things we asked for. Does show though how much easier it is to learn a technology via instruction than just to wing it by trial and error. Will definitely push for more of the same in the future."

Paul Ashley


"Great course, well worth the money and our trainer was great! Would definitely use Wise Owl again."

Stuart Allan

Lloyds Banking Group

"Very useful and interesting content."

Rebecca Salmon

The Cambridge Building Society

"We have used Wise Owl in the past and the fast track course was just what we needed to get everyone up to speed regardless of experience. Being the only company on the course allowed us to steer the content and questions towards our particularly business which was really useful. Overall very pleased with the training and excellent course manual provided."

Mark Webb

Sesame Bankhall Group

"Liked the flexibility of the trainer to vary and adapt the content of the course dependent on our needs. Prior knowledge of Wise Owl by one of the team members, lead to our choice."

Iain Stemp

The Cambridge Building Society

"This is my second training and as before, the trainer was knowledgeable and very clear with his explanations. He was able to tailor the course to match my experience and I am very satisfied overall. I wanted to improve my SSAS skills. Though the course was about a model we don't use at work right now, I am positive I will get the opportunity to put it to good use."

Folakemi Ayoade

Bank of England

"(SSIS) Enjoyed the training; examples clear and concise; thanks to the trainer for helping investigate particular issues that we had, in his own time, on top of the training. (SSRS) Very useful to be able to tailor the course to our requirements. Many thanks to the trainer for responding so quickly to our questions which went quite a long way off topic."

Lucy Gooda

The Cambridge Building Society

"The course was great and I like the set up - where we are taught an example and we practice, with the teacher guiding us and correcting us. We had a wonderful instructor!"

Bianca Delgado

"Our trainer was great, really knowledgeable and patient; couldn't fault him. Really enjoyed the course overall. Thanks. Wise Owl comes recommended through the company I work for, I'll certainly recommend you now."
