Comments and Testimonials

Snow Business testimonial – working alongside staff in Excel

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’.

Ashorne Hill – Training staff in Excel, Word and PowerPoint

Excellent training delivery, courses being small in numbers worked very well for our staff, giving them time for any additional questions/content.
Smooth process from start to finish and excellent that trainers could provide individual laptops for staff that didn’t have their own.
Very informative training – we like the fact we can keep notes to refer back to while at work
