Hear what our past participants say: 

Before the course, we had put off engaging with Data and the opportunities and challenges it brings. Now we have a clear vision and have implemented our first proof of concepts.” - Course Participant.

Philippe is incredibly engaging and knowledgeable, he presented complicated concepts in a totally understandable way but was willing to dig deeper into things when prompted. He used online learning tools flawlessly.” - Course Participant.

This course and teaching were pitched at exactly the right level. There was enough content for thoroughly tech people to discuss the detail but it was kept generally high level enough for non-data specialists to understand the importance. Philippe did a great job of managing the classes in an online environment.” - Course participant
