Here’s what some of our students have to say about our Excel Training course
“I applied many of the skills I learnt through your excel course to automate many aspects of my work and it has been a huge help. My next step is to improve my VBA skills!”
“This course is excellent. The Skills I have developed have given me the confidence to tackle advanced problems in an Investment Banking environment. Unlike other courses, the tutorials are practical, to the point and are relevant to professionals. I would highly recommend this course.”
“Sohail’s courses have provided me with the guidance and traction to hugely grow my earnings – in fact trebled my income over the past few weeks upon completion. This was due to the fact there’s a formula that for me Save clarified core missing pieces. For me this has been a real game changer and a catalyst.”
“I can honestly say that your Excel course was the best investment I have made in my career. From learning a few advanced techniques and applying them where needed I have added a great weapon to my arsenal with regards to getting new contracts. In the 2 years since I purchased your course my income has increased 92% and with more experience it is only going to jump up even higher! Thanks for the help and support and I wish you well!”
“Even in the preliminary module, I still found little tips that I didn’t know about – I knew this was the right course for me, and settled in for the ride.100% recommended – as your promotional material says, this is a no-brainer for every PMO (but don’t tell too many people, or I’ll lose my advantage!!)”
“Courses like this should be required by all as most people have no excel or Microsoft based training. This course is at a level that provokes or inspires. You can take something you have learned and apply to real life accounting or business scenarios based on the fact that your examples are real life and not 3 sales people selling apples and oranges (Such as the use of text functions, the & formula for a unique reference – invaluable in my new business)”

“I did get promoted to Data Analyst just recently and once I get myself settled will be using a lot of what I learned in your course. I found the VBA especially useful; well really, all of it was very useful. It has gotten me thinking about better ways to manage the data and reports that I am building… now I just need the time to actually build the reports in a way that will save me time. 🙂 I would recommend the course to anyone that wants to really learn what Excel can do. It was worth every penny.”
“The VBA course has been a game changer as the ability to automate was something I longed for in order to be more efficient and more effective as a professional. I also really liked the PowerPoint lesson and the Marketing Your Skills lesson. This course is the complete package, I would recommend this course 100% because it goes above and beyond the call of developing a skillset that can be taken anywhere but also a mindset and direction as well”
“As an accountant, I worked with excel all day and have always been interested in getting more out of it. Having become involved with a new start-up business and sold my practice, I decided to do a detailed course in Excel in Dublin – It was very good with good insight into dashboards, index and match use and an intro to VBA. Having been aware of basic macro’s I was not happy with the VBA side of the course as it was left hanging and was of no use to me as the examples were not business related and did not inspire. It was this frustration that lead me to your course – I cannot remember how I found it but I took a free trial and thought that you examples were enough to invest given the price-point. I am yet to complete the course but would highly recommend it and have done so already. I have used the material in real life, especially the use of text functions. I have also used code having got some familiarity with”
“Sorry I didn’t get back to you earlier but I needed to collect all data before collating and I managed to do this only this week. It worked! Thank you once again, I think I still need more practice but your coding has made life much more simple”
“Completed up to the PowerPoint chapters on the VBA course – I wanted to fully get my head around VBA in Excel before I move onto PowerPoint (hopefully soon). Again, really good stuff, it’s so great having a tangible tool like VBA to open doors for me. Once again, thanks so much mate.”
“First of all just to let you know that you are a genius!! Thanks for teaching me all this stuff and sharing all your years of professional experience. I´m really learning!! (* Laura is an Excel & VBA Student)”

Yes, we do, we will dust it off if you need it because it rarely happens! You have 30 days to let us know that the training isn’t right for you and we will happily refund. Note, as per the above once you download the material, refunding is invalidated thereafter.

Being professionals ourselves, we are watching a major shift right now, work will require you to handle higher and higher volumes of data. In fact corporate jobs are rapidly evolving, and those with good data and automation skills will stand out and have their pick of the best jobs.
For the right people Pivot Tables should not be ignored
From my 15+ years of using Excel in major organisations, my rule of thumb is that if you are regularly working with mid-sized data sets (more than 5000 rows x 15-20 columns) then you should strongly consider Pivot Tables to summarise your data.
If you are a casual user of Excel then no. But if you are a more serious data user or aspire to be such as an analyst (Data Analyst, MI Analyst), a Business Intelligence Developer/Analyst/Consultant, data science professional or any other professional like an Accountant, PMO, Marketer who deals with lots of messy data then Power Query can be a game changer and can achieve a lot without resorting to VBA. It can save you so much time and make the process of analysis and reporting seamless.
If you are getting data from various sources such as databases, Azure, SharePoint, the web, Facebook, Sales force etc, then Power Query makes this incredibly easy!
No! In fact the opposite is true. If you have significant experience and knowledge in your field and you can combine that with a stronger data / automation skill set, well then you are going to become invaluable to your company. Your experience plus your newfound data / automation skills will have you creating analysis and building insights that colleagues with less experience may pick up on. I work with many colleagues in their 60’s and they are invaluable folks.
