"This morning I set up a Macro (as per Thursday’s advanced course) and recorded the whole operation so I could apply to future reports downloads and ‘wow’ this has really saved so much time -thank you."

Iris Vicary, Telent

"After taking part in the intermediate and advanced excel courses I soon booked onto the word training. Nicola was both helpful and technical. The courses were just the right length and I would strongly recommend."

James Harris, Critchleys Chartered Accountants

Thank you for this and indeed the training today. Whilst I know there’s a wealth of material available on the internet it is often something that is better when you have a specific problem. I found this session much more beneficial having an expert walk us through the functions and manipulation of data, it had a logical flow, was presented in an accessible and interactive way and was one of the more enjoyable training sessions I’ve attended.

I can already see how this knowledge will be put to use over the coming weeks and I look forward to attending the advanced course soon.

Sharon/Christine - I’d also like to thank you for putting these sessions in place, it was something I would definitely recommend to colleagues.
