John delivered the session in a relaxed manner. He ensured that all abilities were catered for and that people were learning at their own pace.
For the employees that needed a little more time, they did not feel pressured to move on and for the employees that were a little more advanced, John demonstrated some great tips and tricks!!
The day sessions were interesting, enjoyable and well planned. We can totally recommend this course and have booked for future intermediate training and an advanced bespoke course.

Move With Us testimonial – helping train staff in Excel

I had a workshop session with John on a survey report that was taking a considerable amount of time to complete. John explained to us that if we changed how we were initially setting out the data that the production of reports and pivot tables would be much quicker.

The Excel training we had over the course of the next two days was fantastic. John managed to keep us all focussed, he is a very engaging trainer. We were all eager to get back to our desks and start implementing what we’d learnt to make our report running much more efficient.
