How we help Snow Business International Ltd
John spent 3 days at Snow Business in Ebley near Stroud delivering Intermediate Excel training for 20 staff. John was able to share through his course the benefits and efficiency in using Excel properly that will help the staff in their job roles. By using a whole host of simple and effective shortcuts John made the courses fun, realistic and personable. In the future, John will be working alongside Snow Business for future training and surgery sessions on their own data.
Quote from Kate, Senior Operations Support
“It has been my responsibility to make arrangements for Excel training to be provided for several departments across the business from Sales, Purchasing to Operational & Engineering staff. John provided a well-paced and knowledgeable course. We ran 3 courses over 3 days and the feedback has been consistent high praise for John and the content of the course. A week later there is still a buzz around the business about the training and lots of people talking and implementing many of the skills and new knowledge in Excel in their day-to-day work. John is a gem of a trainer and to keep all participants engaged all day long in a very detailed and complex agenda is a triumph!”
Quotes from attendees of the Excel courses run for Snow Business at their premises:
“Excellent interactive training, engaging and informative. A thoroughly enjoyable day.”
– Andrew, Distribution Network Manager
“The session was very well structured with a good combination of theory and practical work. It was very useful to do individual examples of each task and the course notes are thorough without being confusing. John was a great teacher and catered for all knowledge levels. The pace of the day was great, at no point did we feel John was moving on too quickly but the sessions didn’t ‘drag’.”
– Lucinda, Sales Support
“I was very impressed with the Excel training we had last week. John was very informative and kept us all on the edges of our seats with the quick fixes from the Excel programme that many of us didn’t know existed. I picked up many tips which I am already using in the day to day work.”
– PA, Operations Support
“I found the Excel training provided by John last week to be very informative and interesting. He covered parts of Excel that were of interest to our business and would be of use to us. It was an excellent refresher for me as I had not used Excel to this degree in a long time and this course reminded me of what I had learnt previously. John himself was very informative, helpful and a brilliant trainer. He made the course interesting and took the day at a pace to suit every ability in the group. I would not hesitate to attend another course being run by John in the future.”
