Through presentation, case studies and group discussion you will gain an insight into a wide variety of current topics. Key concepts will be retained through the use of many illustrative examples. In particular, we use many spreadsheet examples (that will be made available to you in an ‘unprotected’ form) throughout the training as well as ‘stories from the field’ to illustrate the relevant points and help you make the transition from theory to practice with outstanding results.
