What our participants say
“Trainer was excellent. One of the best trainers and course that I have attended. He made a perceivably boring subject into an interesting and useful one. He was also humorous, engaging and very well prepared.”
“Engaging instructor. Really helps to explain complicated technical stuff in an understandable way, with lots of real-life example and applications. The last part about trends and reminders as the world uses more data analytics are important and often missed e.g. It is not what you can do, but also what you should do, taking care of the sensitivity and how recipient would perceive it.”
“It sounded like a very boring topic, but the trainer Mr Saurabh Anand made it very interesting. Well-taught and spread out hence not draining to our minds. I also appreciated that trainer was very engaging and encouraging throughout the entire workshop. PowerPoint slides were also made simple and not wordy like other workshops I have attended. One of the best trainers I have met since all my virtual trainings!”
“Saurabh was an excellent instructor. I actually learnt a lot from him through his simple explanation and well-thought examples. Saurabh is able to address all my queries effectively and provided suggestions on how I can improve my current processes at work. I strongly recommend Saurabh and this course and wished to attend more courses in the future that will be taught by him.”
“Trainer is very engaging who uses pictures & layman terms to explain to let us understand this complicated topic. He is very patient & passionate about data analytics. By far, he is the best, engaging trainer I’ve met. I understand & like data analytics much better after attending his session.”
