Ministry of Natural Resources Canada

Paul customized a workshop on Advanced Charts and Effective Data Presentation with Excel and PowerPoint for us as an in-house workshop. The training was delivered in an engaging manner and Paul’s mastery of the many aspects of Excel allowed him to respond to all questions that we had, even those well beyond the specific area covered by the training session.

[The Instructor was] Easy to understand and follow along with. He didn’t race along, kept the pace appropriate for the 2 hour length and made it easier to follow along and work through the practices. Overall a very satisfactory program [Effective data visualization with Excel] and one of the better online offerings I’ve attended in a long while.

Professional Development Webinar Participant, Toronto

[VBA for the Non-programmer online live workshop] The material covered in each session 1 – 4 was just the right amount of information. The Excel exercises were very well developed. There were a number of tasks so that slower students like myself can spend more time on Task 1 and faster students can do Task 2, Task 3, Task 4, and sometimes an Advanced Task. The VBA Syntax needs to show each part of the statement more clearly. I think if the formating was done differently, the VBA Syntax will stand out clearer on the page. Maybe put a box around the VBA Syntax.
