Don’t just take our word for it, here’s what our customers had to say!

"Brilliant introduction for me into Excel, and how this can be put into practice within my own work. I would tell people who are thinking about this course, if you want to improve your skills and want to learn new ways of working to become more efficient, then this course is recommended. I learnt about being able to link data between excel sheets, being more efficient using shortcuts and creating tables that allow me to create advanced filters to narrow down information."

Jennifer B – 2 Sister Food Group

"I enjoyed it, I really liked it. Everything was ok, for future I would prefer to be in the classroom and not online. Because it is difficult to catch the words and still I want to learn. I did learn about using functions, formulas and fundamentals which will cut the time. I will use KPI’s and graphs in my job."

Aelita C – 2 Sisters Food Group

"Excellent; the fact I missed the previous level of this course and I was still able to understand what was being delivered. I have learnt how to use Horizontal and vertical lookup tables, Validation / restriction rules and creating drop downs."

I Jewkes – 2SFG

"I have learnt some useful ways of building knowledge in excel, and ways to improve efficiency in everyday work activities, this includes: H lookup / v lookup Macros What if analysis and Data validation."

R Perry – 2SFG

"I think this course is very useful for anybody who works with more complicated spread sheets and who wants to use excel to analyse and manipulate their date
Found this the most interesting course of the three I have done – really enjoyed it and have already thought of changing some of the files I use regularly.

I have learnt about complicated formulas, analytical tools, macros.
I will use these tools to mainly lock the spread sheets I use for collecting data restricting certain area’s and provide clearer instructions"

J Fletcher – 2SFG

"The course taught me If formulas, I haven’t used these before, also V look up and H look ups and Macros. This will make me more efficient. It would be useful for learning formulas and look ups and this will help me build spreadsheets to use for my role."

S Kang- 2SFG

"Really positive experience. I feel that I have learned a lot today and look forward to putting the skills in to practice. It would have been beneficial to have done this course, and perhaps also Powerpoint course skills much earlier in my time at ABP (now ten months in – would have been fantastic to have learned some of these skills, especially where presentations are concerned, much earlier). Encouraged and more confident in my abilities going forward. Hope to come back to do higher levels. I am currently working on a project for which I am using Excel to keep track of progress. These skills will help me to better manage the data and utilise Excel better to its potential."

Kate A – ABP Beef

"Very well set out and felt engaged as the trainer involved us with testing games and reminding me what I had learnt which helped me to remember a lot more."

Emily P – Motorhomes

"Go ahead, this course is well worth while. I have learnt about Pivot Tables, Graphs and using functions."

Sean F – Arconic

"Excellent course, I learned a lot that will help in my daily work, including learning pivot, formula and graph details."

Martin P – Arconic

"The training has helped me to utilise the shortcuts in the software."

Martin P – Arconic

"The training was excellent and I would encourage my colleagues to attend this course.
The training will help to efficiently manage my time while doing reports in excel, and it will help with improvements in the reports."

Kamlesh P – Arconic

"I would encourage others to take the course as it is very helpful. I have learnt how Pivot Tables work to extract order details, sums I can work out, total figures clearly add off different sheets, and Shortcuts which won’t take me a long to find and do."

Chloe D – Arconic

"It was good, I would recommend to others. It cemented things in that I sort of already knew, but I am now a lot more confident."

Charlotte L – Arconic

"I feel like I really need to practice the techniques I learnt on the Secrets and Ninjas course before I can fully appreciate everything I learnt on the gurus. I am not at a Guru level, but going through the booklet helped me to appreciate where I can increase my use of Excel once I’ve put enough practice into the first two levels. As always, a very informative session with Karen who works at a steady pace allowing everyone in the class to learn, regardless of what level they may be at. It helped that there were only three of us in this session. The main things I came away with was Scenario Planning, Widgets, Buttons and some really good ways of building templates which will allow me to work more efficiently."

Sandeep K – 2 Sisters Food Group

"Course is aimed at experienced excel users that use excel daily. Really good to show people how to use data efficiently and effectively (pivot tables, vlookups, hlookups etc). Was really easy to ask questions and have examples relating to day to day work to show how each section was relevant."

Luke H – 2 Sisters Food Group

"Some very good techniques to save time and makes viewing work simpler. Showed me about Macros, Evaluating formulas and HLookup/Vlookup/Iferror"

Jai P – 2 Sisters Food Group

"This training will definitely make my life easier in my job on the day to day tasks. It’s going to be a lot quicker and more sufficient using the skills I have learned today. I will recommend the course to my colleagues. I learnt about the correct use of formulas, data translation in pie charts and how to save documents, access documents and how to use shortcuts."

Raisa P – 2 Sisters Food Group

"Excellent – Karen has a great knowledge and ran the session at a good pace. Learnt so much in 1 day – will definitely recommend colleagues to attend. The 3 main things I learnt about were
• Shortcuts – save me a lot of time and more efficient in my role.
• Conditional formatting for data.
• Sparklines – great way to show snapshots of data I will be using for sure."

Pavitar S – 2 Sisters Food Group

"Really enjoyed the day again, Karen is a lovely trainer and is very patient with my questions! Thanks again for a valuable day!
It was good to refresh some of the points from the Ninja day. The shortcut reminders are good,
Solver and the Goal seeker will be particularly useful."

Gill P – 2 Sisters Food Group

"Good training course, interactive with a good set of examples to help understand each part.
May be worth noting that if people have an understanding of formulas already they may need a higher level."

Thomas T – 2 Sisters Food Group

"I thought we could have used more actual practice instead of just looking at all the examples in theory, if we were given problems to solve it might be better to remember these, although I understand that there might not be enough time for that.

I suppose it depends on the relevance to audience but would like to see more complex formulas.

I’d still say the course was useful as you’ll always find something you didn’t know about. Solver was the most interesting tool which I still need to figure out but possibly might be able to use at work, other than that majority of the formulas were more of a recap to things I have already seen."

Jolanta S – 2 Sisters Food Group

"This course is very important for people to use Excel every day. Sometimes its important to save time. I learnt about IFOR, IFAND, IFNOT, IFERROR, VLOOKUP, HLOOKUP functions, data validation and PMT."

Dayanna B – 2 Sisters Food Group

"Unfortunately the course today was not really beneficial to my role, however the trainer was great and it was enjoyable."

Katrina W – Bradeney House

"Really good information at an intermediate level. Some of the information I already did day to day, so certain parts I did not learn something new, but at all times I learnt how to do things more efficiently. I am doing the Guru course in a few days so this should be a session where I learn a lot of new things.

Would recommend to other people in the business."

Luke H – 2 Sisters Food Group

"I simply cannot imagine being taught excel by anyone other than Karen now! Her knowledge, energy and teaching style are completely unrivalled!
I feel after completing the ‘ninja’ course that this is the level I need to be at currently in my job and am excited to build on it myself. I will of course always recommend this course and who knows maybe I’ll be ready for ‘Guru’ level one day!"

Kacie R – 2 Sisters Food Group

"I thought it was very useful for anyone that is using it on daily basis. Really enjoyed the course and ready for the next level. I learnt about several useful tools on formatting and recap of text functions, most of all a lot of useful shortcuts and gaps in formulas that I haven’t known before. This was a good preparation for the next course."

Jolanta S – 2 Sisters Food Group

"Some of it is basic- but then it builds up to the more advanced levels. It works at an excellent pace so that more complex tools/processes are made simple. I will use some of the tools to make my work more efficient. Mainly it helps with data manipulation and table forming, which is relevant in my job as I handle lots of data ‘dumps’. I look forward to the next session which I hope covers more formulas and advanced commands but this session definitely filled in my knowledge gaps on the latest excel program."

Jenna M – 2 Sisters Food Group

"Very explanatory and builds on some simple fundamentals of excel. Some very good time saving tips."

Jai P – 2 Sisters Food Group

"It was very informative and builds on the foundation course really well. Consolidated previous knowledge and skills and built on in terms of shortcuts and efficiency."

Rachel P – 2 Sisters Food Group

"The course was excellent, I really enjoyed it. I have learnt :-
How to create a chart easily…F11 Boom was a revelation!
Using the tick button to complete actions
Creating pivot tables and then manipulating them…much easier than expected!"

Gill P – 2 Sisters Food Group

"I 100% recommend this course!"

Brian K – Arconic

"Overall it was very informative and I learnt a lot. I learnt about charts, formulas and shortcuts."

Gary G – Arconic

"Good course, very useful and a great starting point to use Excel. It teaches you about formatting, shortcuts and using formulas."

Richard M – Arconic

"Very enjoyable and informative. I have found better ways to format data and to show information in graphic form and have learnt various shortcuts that will be useful."

Peter K – Arconic

"Very positive and would encourage others to do the course. I have learnt about quick keys, which I will use every day, conditional formatting, which I will use to modify my schedules and order-books, and formulas, which I will do more of."

Phil C – Arconic

"I started on the secrets, it is a continuous journey of learning. Building my knowledge of excel. I learnt how to change data to tables and how to use the camera to get a snapshot of information to watch the data change."

Saneeya K – 2 Sisters Food Group

"I would recommend this course to all of my colleagues. Really good and a positive step on from the Excel Secrets course I did a few weeks ago. Karen was also excellent, as usual.

I learnt about Pivot Tables; Creating tables and 3D formulas. All three were excellent and extremely relevant to my day job. I will definitely be more efficient as a result and already have my eye on a number of work documents I will be modifying."

Sandeep K – 2 Sisters Food Group

"Today has been a great learning experience, but I have reached my ceiling in regard to what I need to know and this level was just enough for me to move on and put what I learned into practice."

Mark D – 2 Sisters Food Group

"It is a fantastic course, if you are like me, a novice on excel, it is amazing what you can do on Excel. I learnt quicker ways of getting the same result, showing me how to work smarter and faster ways of checking the numbers are correct. I am just amazed at what you can do in Excel! If I can use 30% of what I have been shown, this will make a massive difference to my work.
Only down point there is so much information to take in, would love to cover the same information just a bit slower, but I am sure the more I use Excel, and play with the various things I have been shown, the better it will be.

Thank you."

Mark B – 2 Sisters Food Group

"For me it was excellent! I have learnt about advanced filters as well as some interesting things that I can do on pivot tables and all the controls tricks, that really save me time! It allowed me to catch up on some things and prepare me for the guru training."

Dayanna B – 2 Sisters Food Group

"The instructor and materials were excellent and the topics were well covered. Lots of valuable information and tips.
My feedback isn’t a negative reflection of the course, I just needed the next step up, but it was useful to formalise my self taught knowledge, and fill in some of the blanks,"

Alex S – 2 Sisters Food Group

"Good course, good teacher who explains things well. Afternoon session was a bit too fast paced.

Learned a lot – will probably not be hugely relevant in my role but still of some use and feel much more confident in excel."

Graham M – Carillion

"I felt it was very in depth but at the same time it felt really easy to take in. It wasn’t info overload and the refresh questions were a massive help."

Indy B – Carillion

"I felt the course was not as relevant to me as I thought it was going to be and also covered more complex parts of Excel than I thought it was going to. It teach me the massive capacity Excel has.
Karen was great and very helpful and patient and answered all my ‘daft’ questions.
For me the course was too heavy on formula and not on the basic setting up of a spreadsheet."

Jane S – Carillion

"Very thorough and easy to follow.
If you require basic knowledge of Excel, I’d recommend trying out this course!
I learnt :-
1. Understanding the options available to me in the software.
2. Ability to enter and format data in Excel.
3. How to use basic formulas"

Nitin S – Carillion

"If you have no knowledge understanding of how to use Excel this the course for you."

Paul C – Carillion

"The training course was very good and definitely helped me to be able to use Excel more efficiently and able to process my reports better. Specifically it helped me with shortcuts to help make work more efficient, sums and how to do them quicker and easier and reporting data. Definitely worth others doing the course but is not that relevant to what we are doing at the moment but if you have no knowledge of Excel then is worth it."

Nathan G – Carillion

"There a lots of good little ways of doing things which will save a lot of time. Definitely worth doing. Highly recommended. I learnt about PMT Function, Data Validation and Data Tables."

Emma M – Pamargan Products

"Very good I would recommend this course to others, I have found it to be extremely useful. I have gained more of an understanding of vlookups, and how formulas work, I have found very useful the naming ranges to understand formulas better when looking back."

Sarah D – Pamargan Products

"I really enjoyed the training given today. I would advise other employees to participate in this training as it is very useful. I learnt about Macros, V Lookup, IF Function and all of these will help me save time in my everyday work."

Chros W – Pamargan

"Very good training day, feel as if I now have a much better understanding of Excel. Looking forward to using the new skills I have learnt. I would highly recommend anyone who uses Excel at any level to take part in the course, it has hints and tips that can help any user. I would have perhaps liked to of started on the level 1, but I am certainly looking forward to doing level 3."

Sam A – ABP Beef

"A lot to learn and it needs a lot of concentration. As for what to tell others, leave your pride at home and take whatever is relevant to you.

What I found to be the key benefits of the course:-
• It is Interactive
• No question is a stupid question.
• Easy to relate to everyday use.
• Refresh your memory with the textbook and handouts given on the day.

The main things I learnt were use of ctrl buttons, function buttons, and where to find margins."

Jack F – ABP Beef

"The course was very informative, not slow paced as expected. The course presenter was very engaging and the time went fast. Would definitely recommend the course, there is always loads to learn. Will definitely be using in my day to day job, excellent course Thank you Karen!"

Saneeya K – 2 Sisters Food Group

"This is my second course with Karen, she has been absolutely fantastic in delivering training. Not only was the training extremely informative, but it was fun as well which has encouraged me to start using PowerPoint for lots of things. I have learnt the basic understanding of PowerPoint and how to navigate my way around as well as how to use Power Point effectively and features I can use to engage my audience."

Sandeep K – 2 Sisters Food Group

"Great training course, really engaging. Trainer was very knowledgeable and answered all questions with no problems. I came away with a good handbook, that I can refer back to if I forget anything. I have learnt how to animate everything in Powerpoint to maximise effect during a presentation – editing images will come in really useful (removing background); How to get the most out of setting templates & how easy these are to change and the shortcuts, which are also relevant in other Microsoft programs, they will speed up my day to day workload."

Luke H – 2 Sisters Food Group

"Anyone who needs to use Power Point in their role should attend this training. I learnt how to prepare a presentation, insert pictures and charts into a presentation and how to save time by using short cuts to perform certain tasks."

Arjinder S – 2 Sisters Food Group

"Fantastic experience with an incredibly knowledgeable and fun teacher. Can’t wait for Karen to teach me excel!!!"

Kacie R – 2 Sisters Food Group

"The course is a very good grounding for base level excel. Teaches you easy and efficient ways of working. You may think you know everything there is definitely new teaching to take away. Karen is very engaging and takes her time to teach and go over things if not understood.
Would definitely recommend."

Saneeya K – 2 Sisters Food Group

"Exceeded my expectations and really gave a business benefit for being more effective. Would definitely recommend to peers of all levels and abilities – you don’t know what you don’t know."

"Very good content. The trainer had lots of time for us all"

Linda L – 2Sisters Food Group

I also learnt, amongst others thing, commands that enable operations to be done in a more streamlined way and formatting for impact relevant to an audience."

Ian J – 2Sisters Food Group

"I think the training was very good, but it duplicated a lot of things I already knew This was however not a reflection on the course nor the teacher, just thought I needed to start from the beginning in Excel so I would not have any knowledge gaps later on. Look forward to continuing with the ninja and guru courses with a solid base knowledge from this course.
Thanks Jolie"

Jolie F – 2 Sisters Food Group Limited

I learnt lots of short cuts and different aspects of the word package that will be beneficial to me."

Arjinder S – 2 Sisters Food Group

"The training was at a slow enough pace to understand each subject but covered a large amount of information. If someone was not that familiar with excel, then it would be an excellent course to start with."

Ian S – 2 Sisters Food Group

"Excellent, very useful and I gained a lot from the course. The trainer was brilliant and made the course very light so it didn’t feel so intense with her humour. Worth doing the course to pick up hints and tips especially quick links/cheats. Quick cheats make my Mondays quicker when sorting data, along with a reminder of charts and tables so I know how to format them and make them stand out, using ribbons that hadn’t used before to mark my work."

Ted A – Nidec

"Excellent training course, very informative. Learnt new shortcut keys; How to select a cell and lock it in a formula, using the $ symbol and conditional formatting."

Spencer E – Nidec

"I think it is a good course for the beginner, I think I needed to go on the next level up. I still learnt about lockable fields; Conditional formatting and Smart."

Mark M – Nidec

"This course was at a very basic level and I was expecting more. I was bored honestly. I already knew about 90 per cent and only some shortcuts were of use. I already work on pivot tables and have been manipulating data for several years. I could have done with probably the next level up/formulas/new pivot tables etc. Would have been better value for money on training budget. Not sure if it’s relevant to colleagues because I don’t know what level they are at, so couldn’t really recommend even though the course was very well presented and the trainer was patient and helpful throughout."

Julia C – Nidec

"Although I was expecting to attend the advanced course, I still learnt things. I learnt about short cut keys; Use of graphic functions and had exposure to Excel 2013. I really enjoyed it and would definitely recommend it to my colleagues."

Jan W – Nidec

"Spend the time “out” to learn how to use Excel correctly. Specifically I learnt data selection shortcuts."

Dave T – Nidec

"Well done on this course, brilliant! I learnt that you are never too old to learn. You might think you know how and what to use but the course has given me a tool to use, instead of just fumbling around."

Machaela B – Winlock

"My experience of my training today was great. The trainer really helped explain excel and what you can do with it clearly, and made sure we all understood at the end. This course would be really helpful to people who have little confidence, or no idea about excel, as it covers a lot of the things you would be doing in your day to day job. It helps you get a good understanding if you were planning on taking the next levels up. This course is also good for people who may need a refresh on excel like myself."

Jonathan H – Ascendancy

"The course was excellent! It really helps to explain how and why you do things. Before I just did them but did not know the reason behind them. I will be more confident when using Excel now, as before when using formulas I used to panic. Really happy with the shortcuts I learned, will really save me time."

Caroline C – Winlock

"All three of us have discussed the course in depth and we all agree that not only did we learn a great deal but, even though it was very intensive course, we thoroughly enjoyed it!
I consider our daytrip a 5* success!"

Ali S – Enterprise Flexi-Rent

Michelle H – Enterprise Flexi-Rent

"I would definitely recommend this to other people who use or would like to start using Visio. I’ve found the training very helpful, I’ve learned new things and will save me a lot of productivity time.

I've learnt the ease of creating floor plans – I use Visio to create floor plans but because I never had training on how to do it, it took me a long time to create simple layouts.
How to create different types of timelines – This is useful for documenting projects.
How to create network/application diagrams – This is invaluable for to document our server and network infrastructure.
Keyboard shortcuts."

Alex H – Hager Powertech

"VLookups, macros and lists were particularly useful today. It was very interactive, we were able to ask questions throughout the day."

Kate D – Hager Powertech

"Would highly recommend on the basis that the tuition was of a very high standard. Everything explained clearly and feedback encouraged. Felt quite happy to ask questions where I felt I wanted to. The main things I learnt today were data validation, math and Statistical functions and recording/running macros, all of which I will look to use to streamline our processes."

Above all a very informative and well presented course."

Rebecca B – Hager

"A professional course delivered by a friendly and approachable trainer. Lots of active involvement enabling me to confidently retain the knowledge given. I especially learned more about: the Excel short cuts; Ranges and Conditional Formatting."

Mark J – Hager

"10 out of 10! I really enjoyed this session and I took a lot more information out of this level as opposed to levels 1 & 2. I would recommend this course to anybody looking to expand their knowledge in Excel.

The top three things i have learned are Conditional formatting; Data validation and IFs."

Lewis A – Hager

"The main things I learnt were IF Statments, Goal Seek functions and Macros, which will improve data sorting and analysis. It was a good overview at the required level."

Dave A – Enterprise Flexi-Rent

Dean M – Enterprise Flexi-Rent

"Excellent training session, this is my second one with Imagine and I have to admit it was a better experience coming to Wolves Uni than carrying out training on site as there are less distractions. Possibly include some practice material in real terms but what we have been given is a great starting point that I hope to build on to do the training justice. Pivot Tables will make life much easier when breaking down report data. Ways to control finances, may be an opportunity to assist management with monetary matters. Shortcuts - I know a lot from school but didn't realise there were so many - life saver!"

Charlotte J – Enterprise Flexi-Rent

"It is extremely relevant, working on the IT helpdesk you do not know what the next call will be so you need a good general background. It felt that VLOOKUP functionality was lacking, hence joining this course. Today will help me progress and help the users in general. 3 main things I learnt were MATCH & INDEX, VLOOKUP and shortcuts to help streamline processes."

Alison S – Enterprise Flexi-Rent

"You should definitely go on the course, a lot of information is given which will benefit all types of roles. The most valuable things I learnt today were shortcuts, more knowledge about Pivots, and basic functionality."

Sophia F – Enterprise Flexi-Rent

"This course has helped me understand more about the daily programmes used in work and shows me expansions I can work towards. This course is definitely worth it!"

Sarah O – Enterprise Flexi Rent

"It was helpful and interesting. I learnt lots of new things that you wouldn't be able to learn on your own. It simplified things that I originally thought were very difficult. I learnt how to create 3D formulas, pivot tables and now have a better understanding of conditional formatting."

Zara S – Enterprise Flexi-Rent

"Well worth attending, set at a good pace with relevant information and a relaxed atmosphere to help the learning. In particular I learnt how to use formulae in my spreadsheets, shortcuts and use of tables."

Clive B – Enterprise Flexi-Rent

"The 3 main things I learnt today were shortcuts for a large amount of controls, custom formatting for data and pivot tables. The training day was good, the shortcuts were very useful and I gained a good understanding. However, I feel I wanted to learn more which may be on Level 3, I would be keen to try that."

Chloe B – Enterprise Flexi-Rent

"For me personally this training will transform the way I work with Excel. Prior to the course I considered myself an average user that was confident to take on most challenges. Now I am confident I can deliver on any piece of work set, whilst saving time in the process. Prior to the course I gave Imagine a background on the piece of work I needed support on and the 1-2-1 level 3 course I attended was tailored to suit, whilst fulfilling the course content.

The course simply gives you all the tools that you can apply in any industry, don't hesitate, invest your time in one of the courses."

Steve P – Shropshire Fire and Rescue

Phil M – Alcoa

"Members of the Johnson Controls staff from Team Leaders to Managers under took Excel training ranging from level 1 to 3 with Imagine, including myself. I can say that the content and pace of the training was excellent. The step-by-step approach really helped me understand not only the features available, but where we could apply them to get the best out of the program. I've have since been using these tools and techniques in my daily working life. My conclusion is that productivity at work has increased by creating excel reports and data sheets to aid our operations at plant level. I would highly recommend this training to anyone who is looking to develop their skills in MS Office based systems"

Bhavraj K – Johnson Controls

"The training underpinned knowledge gained from use at work, but expanded on little known or understood areas, filled in gaps in what was known and also provided information on totally new ways of working and improved my understanding. The shortcuts and formulas were particularly useful and I now know how to correctly use Excel to present data."

Nicholas B – Quorum Logistic Support Ltd.

Charlotte D – Chester Zoo

"I didn't know what to expect from today but the course was a good introduction to various social media platforms. As a Mac user it was interesting to see the capabilities of Microsoft products and how these may be implemented within an education setting. The facilitators were both really friendly and had useful information for everyone on the team."

Lauren W – Chester Zoo

"Interesting and covered the basics of Social Media. I am aware and a user of some platforms but there were some websites mentioned that were new to me"

Sarah B – Chester Zoo

Grace L – ABP

"Frazzled! In a brilliant way. I have learnt so many cheats but also so many more technical details that I never knew existed. I was debating the cost and whether to do Level 1 or 2, Level 1 will certainly be the cost saver! Saying this, I've already booked now onto Level 2 and can't wait!"

Katie F – Shropshire Petals

"I expected to know mostof it due to doing similar things at University but I barely new any of it! It's useful little tricks to save time and if I'd not done the basics course it would have made learning higher level Excel much harder!"

Emma F – Shropshire Petals

"The training has been great. Some things I went through I thought was very basic but its important to start from the beginning. I was surprised at how much I actually did learn on this course! Never underestimate the capabilities of Excel, I look forward to completing Level 2!"

Really brilliant and I really hope that I can join similar trainings eg writing macros if this exist..."
