We wanted to share a quick note and let you know that you did a really good job on giving us the training that we need for Excel and PowerPoint.

As we all know these both are big topics which suit every company differently. We cannot thank you enough for taking the time to tailor this course to our needs.

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.
