Reviews Review Business Modelling

Accounting focussed, but great intro

I took this course to brush up my commercial modelling skills. It went into far more detail than I would ever use at work, but the principles of how to set up a spreadsheet and the extensive list of Excel shortcuts provided were more than worth the £50 it cost me. The instructor was really friendly and made sure no one got left behind as he rattled through the content. One slight negative was only a pack of crisps to eat in a 3 hour workshop - a man's gotta eat!
